Alleged image of Samsung Galaxy S8 leaked, launch date pegged for April 18th
“The Galaxy S8 edge will feature narrow bezels on the top and bottom of the display”
Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S8, has been the subject of a number of leaks and reports recently. A recent rumour had suggested that the Galaxy S8 will offer a Windows Continuum-like desktop experience. Now an alleged live image of the Samsung Galaxy S8 edge variant has been leaked. In addition, a report out of South Korea has revealed the purported launch date of the phone as well.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 edge’s design seen in this image is in line with the earlier reports. The phone appears to have a dual-curved display, with narrow bezels on top and bottom of the screen. There’s no home button on the device, which suggests that the brand may have placed the fingerprint sensor at the rear. Unfortunately, the source hasn’t provided any images of the rear of the phone. There’s no way to confirm the authenticity of the image though.
Additonally, a report from Samsung’s home market of South Korea citing industry insiders claims that the Galaxy S8 will be unveiled at an event in New York City on April 18th. The brand is expected to launch two variants of the phone – one with a flat screen and one with a curved display – just like its predecessor.
