Working Samsung Galaxy S8 leaked in high quality image

Working Samsung Galaxy S8 leaked in high quality image
Over the weekend, we caught a seemingly legit glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy S8 on video. Though brief, the clip did manage to showcase the device's curves, all of which align nicely with the recent flurry of rumors. Now, yet another sighting of a functional Galaxy S8 has popped up in the wild, this time in a lighter color. 

Aside from giving us perhaps our best live peek at the Galaxy S8 to date, the new photos don't tell us much we don't already (think we) know. As has long been expected, there's no home button, and as we can see, there's a trio of software keys at the bottom of the UI. From left to right, it's probable that these represent the app drawer, home and back, which is a configuration that Samsung has used many times in the past. 

In a second image, the device's display is measured, though it's difficult to make out what the precise readings are. It's likely that we're looking at the standard Galaxy S8 here, which is expected to pack a display of 5.8 inches. The larger Galaxy S8+ (Plus), meanwhile, may offer a 6.2-inch display. If these supposed diameters are accurate, both variants will boast larger displays than the Galaxy Note 7, placing them very much within phablet territory. 

Based on the new images, do you like what you see of Samsung's next big thing? Let us know what you think in the comments and remember, you can keep updated on all the Galaxy S8 pre-announcement info via our rumor review

Greatness is upon us! This is a beauty and a beast! Those curves are sexy! What phone is going to outsell the S8 in the first half of 2017?

I love the design but I'll prefer the dark color bcos of that busy top portion.

Surprisingly the size looks pretty comfortable.

That top bezel is really busy, no doubt. hopefully they have the blue editions. If not, definitely black.

And its a faux edge display. There is a black border on the sides just between the display and the bezels. The white color added insult to it's ugliness. Too many holes on the top bezel. Its just ugly, way uglier than a Corby.

The top is just as busy as how the Galxy S4 was. But yep, block onyx should make the busy top only visible at close range.

We know... You've said it in every S8 article known to man... You should just stop coming in the S8 articles if you hate it so much... Why waste your time and energy on something you don't like? Seems stupid to me..

Toyota corolla is the most sold car of 2016. Was is the best? The best car are often sold in very limited quantity. So Mreveryphone we dont give a damn if S8 sell more its by no mean its a better device.

Oh... I thought this was a smartphone site... I didn't know we were discussing Toyota's in here now... Gtfo! Go to Toyota.wedon'tgiveaf.com and make your comments known of your love towards corollas... We're discussing smartphones so trying to compare car sales and smartphone sales is dumb and irrelevant... No comparison...

Nothing wrong in his post. That's like Apple sell thier iPhone, because off hype. He was showing another theory analogy.

That's another smartphone which makes sense... Car sale comparisons in here don't.. Two totally different products that yield different needs and serve different purposes...

"Car sale comparisons in here don't.. Twototally different products that yield different needs and serve different purposes..." Right! That was an illogical analogy. The corolla isn't even in the flagship segment to begin with, while the S7 and S7 edge belong to the flagship segment. Comparing sales of a low-ebd versus a high-end makes no sense. Comparing the sales of a car the versus sales rate of a smartphone...what kind of logic is that... FFS.

There's way too many visible holes (sensors, camera...) at the top.

clearly, a screen protector considering the holes were a lot less visible on the silver, gold and blue Note7.

You're probably right about the screen protector. I'm actually fan of Samsung, rocking a Note 5!

it the same sensors as the note 7 the one on the side of the irises scanner are covered up under the screen you just have to look really hard to see it. they would probably cover theses up too on the official version.

First the G6, and soon to be the S8. I'd like to see the Pixel line adopt this design language later this year. That would be one fantastic phone.

Too big. Also such a screen to body ratio is stupid, plain stupid on a phone. You need those side bezels to protect from accidental side touches. It will make it harder for me to use with one hand. I am having little changes even with S7, which impossible to use one handed without case. And then what's the point of the beautiful design if I have to put a case on???
