Samsung Galaxy S8 smiles for the camera all dressed up in protective case

Galaxy S8 is the talk of the town, even though the smartphone won't be introduced at Mobile World Congress (MWC). If previous rumors proved to be accurate, the flagship might briefly appear at the trade fair, as Samsung is said to run a 1-minute video teaser during its press conference.
Nevertheless, we've got pretty in-depth details about the Galaxy S8, and it's bigger Galaxy S8+ brother, as well as pictures showing the phones. However, Samsung fans who can't get enough images showing the unannounced flagship are in for a pleasant surprise.
A new live image of the Samsung Galaxy S8 emerged online, and from what we've noticed, it falls in line with previous pictures of the phone leaked earlier this week.
The phone is wrapped in a protective case, which means some details will remain a mystery until more pictures surface. The rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and the main camera are pretty visible. The same goes for the selfie camera and iris scanner in the front.
The on-screen touch controls aren't visible, but we already know there won't be any physical Home button on the Galaxy S8. We have no reason to believe the image is fake, but you never know, so take it with a pinch of salt.
- Display 5.8" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(30h talk time)

Tuesday, August 2nd on the screen. That was 2016. This is a Note 7 screen. You would think they would change the wall paper this year lol!

or it could just be not on a network and properly set up. ugly ass case though the only thing that makes me question it isnt the screen is the shadows on the camera bump. it makes it look like the camera sticks out further than the case which would mean the protrudes like crazy which would not be true.

Damn, PA writers are losing their discernment as to what is fake and what is not. The picture is badly photoshopped.

You forget we are in the era of "Fake News". Over the next few years, we won't believe anything that is reported on. Honestly, that could end up being a good thing because we won't trust leaks to be real and will end up being surprised by the end product. It will be a return to the olden days when you didn't know hardly any info about products that are about to be released so the hype can be built up again. In today's world, there is no hype anymore because people know exactly what is about to be released.

Just the worst possible spot for the fingerprint sensor. Camera will be smudged up daily. Horrible decision. I know Sammy has to be different, but the only place that can go, is well below the camera, directly in the middle. With that said....of course I'll be getting the S8+. Just how long it stays with me is the only question :p So glad to be on Jump on Demand. 3 more flagships this year...and all the promo gifts....here I come :-)

Date is August 2nd on the screen...I highly doubt a working Galaxy S8 was in the wild, let alone built at all, back in August. And using a Note7 wallpaper of all things... A mess that the authors on this site report literally anything without doing so much as simply...ya know...analyzing the image first to see that it's clearly fake.
