Samsung has lead the Android mobile phone market for at least a half-decade, but the Galaxy Note 7 misfortune last year lost the company goodwill with consumers after its phones exploded in pants, hotel rooms, aircrafts, and elsewhere.
Samsung might not be flapping its new phone around, but other people surely are. The Galaxy S8 has been enormously leaky, and the newest rounds of leaks provide a closer look at the curvy nature of the device.
In the pictures above, you’ll notice that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus don’t have a home button in these unofficial pictures, something that has conventionally been used on Samsung’s flagship phones.
The loyal Samsung users will probably notice that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus appear to have a lot in common with the Note 7 from last year. Both include the edge-bleeding displays and are much longer than other phones in the market. Additionally, there probably won’t be a stylus in the Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus either.
The leaked pictures and videos also indicate that the Galaxy S8 will also come equipped with a USB-C port and fingerprint sensor on the back. You’ll also see an iris scanner at the top of the phone close to the selfie camera, like the one on the Note 7.
Samsung sent out invites for a special media event on March 29 in New York City, and based on the invitations, it’s safe to assume Samsung will use the occasion to launch its newest Galaxy smartphone—particularly as the invitation includes the words “Unbox Your Phone” with the silhouette of what looks like a smartphone.
