Leaked Samsung S8 images show more display coverage, no front buttons

0

Samsung postponed the launch of its new flagship phones, Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, until after the Mobile World Congress 2017 to deal with the fallout from its Galaxy Note 7 problems and a release date is expected sometime in April.

This fuelled a slot of interest, speculation, leaked images and 3D renders on this Internet. The latest 3D render of leaked images for the smartphones surfaced, courtesy of bloggers @OnLeaks.

Both devices feature dual-edge curved super AMOLED displays, the first time curved displays are used on the smaller variants of Samsung’s flagship. An unnamed “senior Samsung official” revealed to Korean news outlet News1 that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will have 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch displays, respectively. This is achieved by reducing the top and bottom bezel sizes to enable them to fit into roughly the same size as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

The official also said the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will come with a 3000mAh and 3500mAh battery, respectively. This is lower than the 3250mAh and 3750mAh capacity cited in earlier rumours. Though disappointing, the company may be playing safe by opting for more reliable battery configurations instead of pushing the envelope as it did with the Galaxy Note 7.
