Skin deep: 5 things to note in the new Galaxy S8 interface from these high-res photos

By now it's become clear that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ may ship with a completely new iconography that differs even from the latest Samsung UX release that landed with the Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. It is more minimalist in its essence, and brings a kind of a line drawing feel to the rounded icons, which may or may not be your cup of tea.

Thankfully, the latest leaked pictures of what is supposedly a Galaxy S8 handset somewhere in China, showcase the interface in a higher resolution than the blurry shots we've seen so far, so here are a few conclusions we can draw about what's coming down the pipe in Samsung's next UX iteration.

We don't know if older Samsung phones will get the goods - after all, the S8 comes with a pretty funky 18.5:9 screen, and unorthodox 2960 x 1440 resolution that these icons may have been meant for, though scaling them would be a walk in the park for a company with the resources of Samsung, or for icon pack makers, so stay tuned.
