The Galaxy S8 has gotten leaked yet again in what appears to be an official press render of the handset. The tipster behind the photo is the usually reliable Evan Blass, who captioned the image on Twitter with the words “I think this is what you’ve been waiting for.”
This cryptic sentence doesn’t pinpoint whether the device in the picture is the Galaxy S8 or its taller Galaxy S8 Plus sibling. In any case, the snapshot shows off the handset’s minimal bezels agenda in its full glory, with the dual-curved screen giving it a seamless look.
The leak also serves to offer a first look at Samsung’s star-themed wallpaper for the smartphone. The sweeping lines across the display appear to form an ‘S’ if looked at from an angle. One point in the lock screen’s favor is the fact that it bears a March 29 date, the same day the phone is going official at an event in New York.
The image seems to back up past rumors about the Galaxy S8 for the most part. What appears to be an iris scanner can be seen at the top, placed alongside the presumably 8MP selfie camera. There’s a volume rocker on the left and power button on the right.
The right-hand side also features another physical key, widely expected to be a trigger for Samsung’s new Bixby AI assistant. All this change has lead to the elimination of the home button on the front for a nearly hinder-less view of the display.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are likely going to hit stores worldwide on April 21.
