Samsung Galaxy S8 press render leaks out, this is one tall phone

A couple of days ago, at MWC 2017, Samsung said that its next flagship smartphone would be announced on March 29, during one of the company's trademark Unpacked events. 

While Samsung didn't name the handset, it was - with a high degree of certainty - talking about the Galaxy S8.

Now, it appears that we can take a look at a press render depicting the Galaxy S8. It's quite possible that this is one of the images that Samsung itself will use to market the upcoming phone, as the render has been uncovered by Evan Blass (aka @evleaks). In case you need a reminder, Evan Blass has built a solid reputation over the years, almost always being right when it comes to leaks like these. Moreover, this new render doesn't contradict the multitude of previously seen images (and even videos) that allegedly presented the S8.

Samsung's next-gen flagship is expected to have a 5.8-inch version, and a 6.2-inch one called Galaxy S8+, but we do not know which model we have here. Nevertheless, the two variants likely look similar, differing just in size, so this could be either of them.

As you can see above, the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S8 seemingly has an 18:9 (or 2:1) aspect ratio, being taller than most normal phone screens. This obviously reminds us of the display that the already announced LG G6 is sporting (by the way, Evan Blass also revealed press renders showing the G6 before its announcement).

Obviously, a major difference between the Galaxy S8 and the LG G6 is that the Samsung phone offers a dual-curve display, while the screen of the G6 is completely flat.

Recently, we've seen leaked specs for both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and it's clear that these are bound to be very powerful smartphones. Of course, we'll be able to know everything about the two devices only after Samsung officially announces them in almost a month's time. Until then, do let us know if you like what Samsung has in store for us.
