First Real Samsung Galaxy S8 Photo, Specs, Price, Release Date Leaked

Reliable leaker Evan Blass via VentureBeat has just shared the best ever look at Samsung’s Galaxy S8 yet, along with its specs, price and release date. Leaked image of unannounced Galaxy S8, apparently looks pretty different. Here are other details that you might want to catch up in.

2017 is a big year for Samsung, and the Galaxy S8 is the flagship phone that the company’s hopes are currently building the hype and anticipation in the fans. After a disastrous Galaxy Note 7 gloom, hopes are high that the Galaxy S8 will prove popular amongst fans of Samsung’s previous devices, and in order to try and ensure that is the case.

Apparently, real photo of Samsung Galaxy S8 now also shows up more details on what it will bring to the table as far as features are concerned.

The first thing that needs to be mentioned is the fact that two Galaxy S8 handsets are in the race to offer this year with top-end hardware key features. However, this time around, both sizes will flaunt Samsung’s Edge technology, meaning curved screens are the order of the day here. There will be two different screen sizes on offer though, and both will be huge.

According to Blass, Samsung’s new Galaxy S8 will feature 5.8- and 6.2-inch QHD Super AMOLED screens that cover 83 percent of the phones’ faces, meaning that these devices will look as close to bezel-free as we’ve seen so far.

We should thankful to Samsung for opting to move a fingerprint sensor on the front to the rear. Other phone makers have done the same already in the past and today, so this shouldn’t be an issue. While the placement of the sensor – to the side of the camera may be less than optimal.

Under-the-hood of the new phones will be a chip based on 10nm architecture, and depending on the region it varies which the device is sold, that heart will either be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or a Samsung Exynos. Both will offer a beating speed bump over last year’s Galaxy S7. The new handsets will carry 4GB of RAM, just like the Galaxy S7 and 64GB of storage will be the internal base this time around. An SD card slot will cater for those who need an expandable memory space via microSD cards up to and including 256GB are supported.

The rear-facing camera will continue to be a 12MP part whereas the selfie camera on the front will be bumped to an 8-megapixel sensor. Apart from camera part will be a sensor for iris recognition, too, bringing the feature over from the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, as had been expected.

Rest of the notes includes the use of USB-C charging port and the inclusion of headphone jack, both of which will be well-received for differing reasons. The device will run Android Nougat, as it is expected, and Blass says the handset will be announced at an event in New York on March 29th. Those looking to placing orders will be able to buy a Galaxy S8 on April 21st. The 5.8-inch model will retail for €799 (~$850) and the 6.2-inch model at €899 (~$960). That’s €100 (~$107) more than the current models.
