Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are without a doubt the most anticipated phones of 2017 and if all goes according to the rumors, we should be able to buy either phone by mid-April.
Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy S8 and S8+ on March 29, but the latest word on the street is that the phones might be teased at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017. Just days before Samsung holds its Galaxy Tab S3 event in Barcelona this Sunday, live images of an alleged Galaxy S8+ have popped up thanks to China’s Weibo.
According to the leaked images, the incoming Samsung Galaxy S8+ will sport a new design language, just like previous rumors have indicated. The phone, which appears to be already in use, has a sleek design that shows off the highly talked-about edge-to-edge design that we have seen before on the Galaxy S7 Edge and the dead Galaxy Note 7, which could be revived sooner or later. But unlike these two 2016 phones, the leaked Galaxy S8+ has no physical home button that usually houses the fingerprint scanner. More images of the device further confirm that this fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back of the phone, just beside the main camera.
The right-hand side of the device has one button, which means the rest of the buttons that include volume rockers should appear on the left-hand side. The bezels at the top and bottom are also very thin, but it appears as though there is a section at the bottom of the display screen that probably houses the on-screen navigation and home buttons. From the looks, the phone doesn’t feel as huge as, say, the Galaxy C9 Pro that houses a massive 6-inch display screen, but the display area is definitely bigger than any flagship before it – including the Galaxy Note 7 or Note 5 for that matter.
This is just about everything that the leaked images of the alleged Samsung Galaxy S8+ reveal, but if it will be teased at the MWC this Sunday, we should be able to get our hands on more details sooner than later.
Keep in mind that these images are mere leaks from sources that are not attached to Samsung, so take them with a grain of salt.
