New photos of the Samsung Galaxy S8 show 3.5mm earphone jack, side views
Just yesterday, we passed along a leaked press render of the Samsung Galaxy S8. The image came from the Twitter account belonging to reliable source Evan Blass. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ will both greet the light of day in New York City on March 29th. The actual release of the phones should take place on April 21st. And that means there should be more leaked photos of the pair to be seen in the weeks ahead.

But there is no time like the present we say. The latest leaked photos of the Galaxy S8 have been disseminated today. The phone actually looks like that image Samsung showed at the end of the teaser it ran at MWC. We can see the dual-curved edge screen, smaller top and bottom bezels, and the disappearance of the home button as the fingerprint scanner is reportedly moved to the back of the handset, to the right of the camera (today's leaks did not include a photo of the Galaxy S8's back).

The other views include one from the bottom that reveals the inclusion of both the 3.5mm earphone jack and the Type-C port. The side views really show how long the Galaxy S8 is going to be.

We also have the latest rumored specs. The Galaxy S8 is expected to carry a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display protected by Gorilla Glass, carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. In the states, we should see the Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood, featuring an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB of RAM will be inside, along with 64GB of native storage. Those seeking additional storage can access the 256GB capacity microSD slot. Both the rear-facing 12MP camera and the 8MP front-facing camera will sport an f/1.7 aperture, with the selfie shooter producing wide angle images. A 3000mAh battery keeps the hamster wheel spinning.

The Galaxy S8+ will have a larger 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display protected by Gorilla Glass. The resolution remains at 1440 x 2560, and a larger 3500mAh battery is needed to power up the larger screen. Both models come with an IP68 certification rating for dust and water resistance, a fingerprint scanner, and an iris scanner.

Samsung might as well announce the phone at this point.

Samsung are definitely behind these leaks, it isn't a coincidence that these started flying all over the web few days after the G6 was announced.

Not really 1. Leaks were pouring in specially from asian market before MWC 2. Particular version above has AT&T content which leads me to believe it's AT&T's test unit and probably one of AT&T's employee leaking the phone

I am not saying there was no leaks before, but they weren't this clear and definitely it wasn't leaked this frequently.

same thing every time. Double that if there is a major release just before them or there is negative press like there is this year. Gotta keep all the media focused on samsung and not on the competition. It's tons and tons and tons of free advertising.

This is very true and all of a sudden evleaks posts a low quality official marketing material. Something he usually reserves for the week of announcement. Offcourse, he'll reserve the high quality ones for the week of unvieling. Dont know how they think we're fools tbh

It's not like it's anything new. I remember even back to the s4 and every year since that the s series and note series are always leaked before they're announced.

Here's a link to an article on phonearena last year posted a month before the s7 was announced. It's the exact phone. Same stuff every year guys http://www.phonearena.com/news/Leaked-Samsung-Galaxy-S7-and-Galaxy-S7-edge-renders-seemingly-reveal-the-phones-final-design_id77847

I agree, this leak was meant for those buyers planning to purchase the LG G6. Samsung is hoping that those buyers might change their mind once they saw this leak and wait for the release of S8 rather than purchasing the G6.

This is not accidental leak, this is Samsung leaking this phone. To stop sales of G6.

How exactly does leaking images of a non-announced device affect the sales of an already-announced one?

IRK, it's like when game trailers get leaked and they just go ahead and release them the next day.

According to many on this site, Samsung were definitely going to copy Apple and remove the headphone jack, just like they were sure Samsung and every Android OEM were going to copy 3d touch.

You know how it goes with those people. Samsung uses the word pay in Samsung pay and they scream to the heavens that they're copying Apple. Apple's going to use a curved AMOLED screen and a retina scanner, and all you get is crickets from them

Crickets for now...I expect closer to launch and we're seeing leaks, those same people will cry 'But Apple did curved screens best!!'

Samsung copied Apple pay, fingerprint, Siri, icon shapes, settings menu design and so many things from Apple.

No they did not. SoftCard and Google Wallet were the first payment systems. Samsung didnt copy Apple. They added a mobile payment system because Google and Apple both have one an as a competitor they needed to as well. Apple wasnt first. So claiming they just copied APple is stupid. OEM were already gettign fingerprint readers. Apple bought the main supplier and cancelled them getting the ones from this company and everyone had to get an Alternative. Samsung simply made their own. It wasnt as good, still worked 99% of the time. Icon shapes? Really? Settings menu? The S has the same menu its always had. Its just cleaner. Apple copied flat design UI, from MS. Touch ID? Apple made their own to copy what Synapics was already working on. You can own icon shapes. That stupid. You are mucho loco!

No, they copied Pay from Google Wallet, fingerprint from the Moto Atrix, Siri from the makers of Nuance, etc... the same places Apple copied them from.

It's a bit different. Amoled is a type of screen that anyone can use if they so choose. It's not a phrase or something that Samsung or anyone else really owns. Coming out with Samsung Pay right after Apple Pay is a blatant copy as Samsung always does. Lot at Touch ID. Samsung and others were swiping and now look at the industry. I can say the same how both Pay systems and the fingerprint scanner works together for security. I can go on and on. As for the iris scanner, Apple is rumored to be using advanced 3D imagery to conduct facial recognition, not an iris scanner. Also, the crap other manufactures were using in the past was just the front facing camera recognizing you from pics lol! Low budget crap to look like you have something revolutionary. No one used it!

Then you would agree that 64bit is a processor that anyone can use if they choose. The term Apple "Wallet" came out after Google Wallet. Apple having their method of Touch ID first was a matter of paying Authentec for a temporary exclusive. Authentec also made the swipe versions. That would make AT&T an industry leader for their temporary exclusive deal on the iPhone. Widgets, pull down notifications, one handed mode, split screen, haptic feedback, power saving mode, changeable wallpapers, multitasking cards (sort of),NFC implementation...we can go on and on but we'd be going in circles. The issue is the hypocrisy from one side of the equation versus every other manufacterer.
