Samsung Galaxy S8 Photos Leak Out Showing Everything
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is slated to launch March 29, but according to two separate leaks, we know what the phone looks like. The Galaxy S8 photos that leaked through BGR give us the first real look at the device. Another render press image from Evan Blass has also leaked out.
Several images posted on BGR show the smaller Galaxy S8, but not the Galaxy S8 Plus. Evan also leaked the press render of the smaller S8. The Galaxy S8 photos give us a glimpse at what the phone looks like. There is little to no bezel, USB-C, a headphone jack, and an extra button on the side.

It’s a gorgeous looking phone. The curved edge to edge display rivals that of the LG G6. The important part to note is the phone isn’t in English but appears to be an AT&T unit. There are icons for DirecTV and AT&T services unless Samsung is partnering with AT&T.
Evan’s tweet confirms the look of the BGR leak. It means we have what the phone looks like weeks, well almost a month, ahead of the unveiling. We’ve seen leaks from phones, but Samsung seems to have botched this one beyond what we typically see.
It’s welcoming to see the USB-C port and to still have the headphone jack on the handset. It’s also warming to see the almost bezel-less display with curved edges. We’re moving to this standard on all phones; I cannot be happier! The extra hardware button on the side could relate to the camera or be a quick action home button. We’ll have to wait and see. One thing I didn’t notice is a fingerprint reader which means it either on the rear or hidden on the front.
Tell us your thoughts – what do you think about the Galaxy S8 now that we have all but confirmed what the phone looks like?
