Samsung has a big phone release ahead of them, especially on the heels of last year’s Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, and they’re hoping the Galaxy S8 is a device to set things back on track.
An image of a Samsung smartphone has recently caught people’s attention, and speculations are rife that it is the latest, much-talked-about Samsung Galaxy S8. That’s not to say that curiosity has got the better of us since then, and so we decided to give you some good, but uncertain, insights.
The latest leaked images showing the alleged device portray a sleek smartphone with extra screen real estate, thanks to the lack of a physical home button and the extremely thin side bezels. The frame of the smartphone also seems slightly more curved than what previous leaks have shown, but it looks good nonetheless.

Other than the obvious features on the phone’s front, this leak doesn’t give any more insight into what might be included in the S8, like a 4K screen and dual rear camera setup, or what might have been left out, like the headphone jack.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Home Button Removed
The new device continues to carry Samsung’s design cues. As prior reports suggested, the S8 features a near-bezel-less design, similar to the Edge or Note 7. However, there is a notable difference in the new device – the physical home button is gone, which is in line with recent Samsung rumors of a home button and fingerprint scanner relocation to the screen.
The new images surfaced on Weibo (via Techupdate3) and show the purported Galaxy S8 with no home button below the display. The images don’t show any onscreen buttons either, which indicates they’re activated when touching the display.
Samsung branding is prominent below the display, where the physical home button used to be on previous Galaxy smartphones, and the images show a gold-colored version of the device.
The right side of the smartphone seems to have the physical power / lock button, while the volume rocker buttons are located on the left side. The images don’t show the rear of the device, so it remains unclear whether the Samsung Galaxy S8 would have a dual rear camera setup after all. Recent rumors indicated that Samsung gave up on the idea, and the Galaxy S8 would have a single main camera.
Earlier reports also claimed that Samsung has already started testing the Galaxy S8 in China, which could explain why the user interface (UI) of the device shown in the newly leaked images seems to be in Chinese.
Although if the image is photoshopped still it is relevant if we merge the latest Chinese leaks. There will not be any big change in terms of build, so this image is pretty much how Galaxy S8 will look like.
