Galaxy S8 Revealed In First Leaked Image?

All sources are pointing to the idea that the Galaxy S8 will go on sale in April, with several suggesting a date of 18 April. In fact, it might not just be the Galaxy S8's features that could be a game-changer.

"There is a possibility of the S8 phones being showcased a month or two ahead of the actual release date", a source familiar with the matter told The Investor.

Over the last few months, rumors emerged that Samsung would be releasing another flagship-grade smartphone besides the Galaxy S8, with numerous fans speculating that the second flagship would be the Note 8.

The rumors concerning the launch of the Galaxy S8 continue to offer different views on the matter.

The South Korean company's next flagship smartphone is one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2017 as Samsung looks to establish itself as the world's top phone maker.

Unfortunately, it's still hard to confirm if the device included in the image is the real Galaxy S8, and even if it is, Samsung may not state as much for a while longer. That would point to a launch date of 26 February 2017. Among these include Bixby, a highly advanced voice assistant, an iris scanner akin to the one featured in the ill-fated Note 7, and a killer feature similar to the Microsoft Lumia 950's Continuum, which would enable a smartphone to provide its users with desktop-grade productivity.

For instance, an earlier report from ET News indicated that Samsung may get rid of the conventional home button usually situated somewhere near the lower portion of the smartphone's front display. It was later said that Samsung would unveil the device at a special event in NY instead come April 2017.

How large? Allegedly the 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch displays of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge and be replaced with 5.7-inches and 6.2-inch displays in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge.

So yes, I do think both these images represent something close to what Samsung will soon unveil and for this they prove useful. Samsung's current flagship is now available at a more reasonable price than its initial £569 RRP, and can be bought for less than £500 SIM-free at Amazon UK.
