After the series of Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks that seemed to only involve renders, today we’ve come across a live picture of the device. We take it with a big grain of salt and notice that it resembles the previously leaked renders a lot.
While the debut is at least a few weeks away, the handset keeps on leaking, as if the sources have hit the motherload. This time the phone was spotted on Weibo in China with a gold color case. It’s got no Home button, comes with very narrow bezels, including at the top and bottom and curved edges of the screen. The corners are curved as well and we can’t see the back sadly, to learn if we’ve dealing with a dual camera phone or not.
It’s also a privilege to get to see the handset with the screen powered on, with the new cleaned up Settings area shown on screen. The lack of a physical Home button also means that the fingerprint scanner has moved, either at the back or maybe integrated within the screen panel. Recents and Back capacitive buttons are also gone, replaced by virtual ones probably.
The latest rumors also mention a 3D Touch-style feature on board, plus S Pen stylus support. We’ll learn more as the month passes.
