Samsung Galaxy S8 image leak shows it's really keeping the headphone jack

Posted March 02, 2017

Samsung launched the first trailer for its upcoming flagship unit, the Galaxy S8.

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.

But as luck and leaks would have it, that doesn't mean we don't get to see the new phone at all. Then, on Wednesday morning, an official marketing render was posted by gadget leaker Evan Blass. Well, the rendered image doesn't show a home button.

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will be powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor or an in-house Samsung Exynos chipset (U.S. version will be Snapdragon), run Android 7.0 Nougat, and include 4 GB of RAM. The two versions came out to be 5.8 inches and the S8 Plus with giant 6.2-inch AMOLED screen into its glass and metal shell, with finger-print sensor.

The P10 carries a 5.1-inch 1080p display much like a year ago , whilst the Plus has a larger 5.5-inch 1440p screen. Then there are the normal stainless steel versions of the phone that come in green, silver, gold or rose gold.

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. Additionally, there probably won't be a stylus in the Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus either.

Samsung Galaxy S8, the much awaited flagship device yet to be launched, has already made it to the news! While more high-end smartphones have been ditching the headphone jack lately, in an effort to make their devices slimmer, many consumers don't like this trend, and it's great to see Samsung buck it a bit with their next flagship product.

Rumours suggests that Bixby will support image recognition and image search with the help of front facing camera and will also help in enforcing rich security measures using Iris Scanner while making transactions. The phone's left side has a volume rocker and button below that likely represents the power/lock button, moved from its usual position on the right.
