Nowadays everything is very usual to leak. The new Galaxy S8 big event is still a month away so, naturally, it’s time for it to get leaked.
Thanks to a series of new leaked photos from BGR, we’ve now got what seems to be our best look yet at Samsung’s Galaxy S8.
The photos show the said to be the smaller version, 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and it certainly looks like the real deal. It matches with earlier leaks we’ve seen as well as the latest design render posted by reputable leaker Evan Blass.
Like previous images, the 5.8-inch display takes up almost the entire front side of the phone, which has the smallest bezel we’ve seen on a Samsung flagship to date.
The home button is also gone, as has been previously reported, and there doesn’t appear to be any Samsung branding on the front of the phone.
The latest image, however, is the first time we’ve seen an actual photo of the phone powered on and it reveals a few new details about the upcoming handset. For one, the navigational buttons sport an updated design, though the overall UI doesn’t look too different.
There’s no sign of Bixby, the company’s long-rumored digital assistant created by Siri-makers Viv Labs, but there is a mysterious third hardware button on one side of the device that BGR says will be used to activate the assistant.
Also, as with earlier images, the latest photos once again confirm the S8 will “still” have a headphone jack.
While there are still quite a few details we don’t yet know, including pricing, the camera’s supposed image-recognition abilities and exactly how Samsung’s answer to Siri, all these are still unknown.
Samsung will officially unveil the phone at an event in New York March 29th, when we’ll learn everything we ever wanted to know about the phone.
