Over the past weeks, there have been a lot of leaks and new images with the Samsung Galaxy S8, which, let’s be honest, it’s by far the most interesting handset of this spring, despite all the new models introduced at MWC 2017.
If until now we had a pretty general idea about the way the South Korean manufacturer’s flagship will look, thanks to a series of leaked images, today we finally saw the device in full glory!
Man, this is a nice looking phone!
First, Evan Blass, also known as @evleaks, shared a press render, showing the phone’s front, while, a few hours later, the folks over at BGR, published a set of images with an actual Galaxy S8, showcased from all angles.
At a first look, it shares a lot of design elements with last year’s Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy Note 7 models, the main attraction being the curved AMOLED display, with glass sloping down on either side of the phone.
The back of the phone is also covered by rounded glass, sitting very comfortably in the hand, and it’s also narrowed.
Top notch specs, flagship-worthy
Spec-wise, we already know that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset in the United States, while international models will have an Exynos chip under the hood. However, all models will have 4GB of RAM and 64 gigs of internal storage, with the possibility of expanding the latter, using a microSD card.
On the back, the phone has a 12MP Dual Pixel camera, alongside a flash and the fingerprint scanner, which has been relocated from the physical home button, which is not history, allowing Samsung to shrink the screen bezels. As for the front of the phone, we have an 8MP camera, as well as an iris scanner.
Finally, we should forget about the presence of a 3.5mm audio jack and a special button, on the side, believed to be related to Samsung’s new virtual assistant, Bixby.
