Galaxy S8 fully revealed in new image leak

Thanks to a new leak from Evan Blass, we now get another detailed look at the long-awaited flagship. The two variants will be similar in design, except for the fact that the standard S8 will have a 5.8-inch screen, while the larger model will feature a 6.2-inch display. Earlier this week we got to see two videos showing the device in action and today we have seen its press render and another sneak peak at the device.

The image lines up with past rumors concerning the device, which have pointed to a phone with negligible bezels that help fit a large, curl display.

There's no sign of Bixby, the company's long-rumored digital assistant created by Siri-makers Viv Labs, but there is a mysterious third hardware button on one side of the device that BGR says will be used to activate the assistant.

And since there's a physical keyboard built-in, the entirety of the screen can stay dedicated to whatever you're looking at. To recall, Blackberry in September announced to end its design and production unit, and license the brand to partners.

The phone pictured here is the smaller version of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone duo. Despite the large displays on both models, the phones are narrower than expected thanks to a design that is almost edgeless on either side of the screen. Additionally, there probably won't be a stylus in the Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus either.

A 12-megapixel Dual Pixel camera sits on the back of the Galaxy S8 alongside the flash and sensor array, as well as a newly relocated fingerprint scanner. The result is a wonderfully sleek design that pushes us closer to realizing the "all-screen" smartphones users have been clamoring for.

The display of the S8 will take up most of the front, while all the necessary sensors such as the front-facing camera and infrared sensor for retina detection will all be crammed up top. Apple caused quite a stir when they chose to remove the audio port from its most recent flagships, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The first was to eliminate a legacy port and free up internal space for other components.
