Render of a U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 makes an appearance

Tipster Evan Blass' previous leaks of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ handsets were apparently international models. We come to that conclusion after Blass disseminated a tweet this morning showing another Galaxy S8 render in black. This time, the serial leaker came right out and called it a U.S. version of the phone. The only change we can see is the addition of the Galaxy S8 logo on the back of the device.

To see the biggest difference between the stateside Galaxy S8 and the overseas variant requires that you have X-ray vision. That is because the international model of the phone is powered by the Exynos 8895 chipset, which contains an octa-core CPU. The U.S. version has the Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood, also containing an octa-core CPU.

Because of the sharply reduced size of the top and bottom bezel, Samsung has removed all "badging" from the front of the phone. This clean look has received praise from some potential Galaxy S8 (and Galaxy S8+) buyers across the globe.

Don't forget to circle your calendar on March 29th, which will be the date when Samsung officially introduces its new flagship handsets. And you should check in with us often since we are now at the stage when leaks and rumors start pouring out of the woodwork.
