Just a day after a clear Galaxy S8 press render leaked, BGR has posted photos of a live Galaxy S8 unit. The photos show the thin bezels at the top and bottom of the device, the on-screen navigation buttons, and the slim form factor which also seems to confirm that the device will lack any kind of camera bump.
Thanks to the minimal bezels, the front of the Galaxy S8 is dominated by its 5.8-inch QHD+ circular AMOLED display. While not shown in photos, the rear glass panel of the phone is also curved to improve ergonomics.
The leaked photos also confirm that the Galaxy S8 will feature a 3.5mm jack despite its slim bezels. Samsung has traditionally used a physical home button on its devices, but the lack of bezels on the front of the Galaxy S8 meant that the company had to switch to on-screen navigation buttons and relocate the fingerprint scanner to the rear of the device.
Samsung has confirmed that it will be launching the Galaxy S8 at an event in New York on March 29. The company will be launching the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ this time around with 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display. The handsets will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset (or Exynos 8890), sport 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, iris scanner, and a 12MP Dual Pixel camera at the rear.
