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.

Girls and even the guys wear jewelleries /accessories to purely look beautiful, nice or even cool ,and they are not useless. Thus by looking cool and beautiful, curve screen is not useless.

Yeah jewelry and accessories are pretty useless, they don't do anything for you and they can cost a whole lot more than the S8. You shouldn't use an example that is even more useless than the topic to support your argument lol.

What cave are you living in?, S7E has already been awarded best smartphone 2 times, this is gonna overshadow even that, LG is crap, their UI is ugliest of all OEM's, did you even saw backside of G6 & don't even talk about sony, they haven't been able to change their design since last 5 years, last beautiful sony mobile was Xperia Arc S, after that whole Z series is more likely Crap series, there is a reason they stopped selling premium smartphones in many countries, nobody is buying sony anymore, wake up.

Yah, I wouldn't mind a tall phone.. I found that using iPhone 5s after using 3GS was more comfortable even though it was taller...

Backfired know hey, when caught. It wasn't a joke....

110. mikehunta727 unregistered

It was 100% a joke lmao. What exactly even backfired on me? That someone commented on it? That's called being "backfired" to you? I don't need to prove anything, I am genuinely more experienced with Samsung smartphones and it's products then most here. Have owned a ton of their smartphones including people in my family, their TV'S, their appliances. But everyone knows you are arte and are just a troll account though
