Seven new pictures of the Galaxy S8 in glossy black leak out

Back when reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities tipped that the Galaxy S8 may come in no less than seven colors for the glass chassis - gold, silver, bright black, matte black, blue, orchid, and pink - we were wondering if the "bright" black means something glossy and akin to the Jet Black piano lacquer finish of the iPhone 7

Well, with no less than seven new pictures of this shiny black Galaxy S8 leaked out, we'd have to say it's pretty similar, if that thing makes it into a retail unit, and is not just a prototype.

Since the phone is not powered, we can only see a black slab with curved display sides and corners, the Samsung logo on the back, a camera lens with adjacent flash and heart rate sensor, as well as the finger scanner on the other side of the camera. That coincides with most of the credible pics or renders we've seen so far of the Galaxy S8, so there is every chance that glossy black chassis lovers will have their wish fulfilled with the S8.
