Today’s Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks show few new details for the device. Taking a look at the amount of information which has already surfaced, there really isn’t much left for us to uncover. Still, confirmation never hurt anyone, even if it’s occurring for the hundredth time. We’ve got two images for you today and they confirm what has surfaced so far for the device. Take a look below to find out more.

Display Assembly And Branded Render For The Samsung Galaxy S8 Surface Today

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is perhaps the most widely leaked device to date. The Korean tech giant’s failure with the Note 7 last year has left room for a lot of change. Samsung had high hopes for the Note 7, but malfunctioning batteries on the device led to it being declared a public safety hazard. The company looks to be more than eager to make things up with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The pair will feature a lot of upgrades on board. They’ll feature the Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895, both 10nm processors.

At the display end, Samsung will follow LG’s suit and launch the pair with a brand new 18.5:9 aspect ratio. This will allow for much taller displays and thinner top/bottom bezels. However, how ergonomically suited the pair will be, only time can tell. Today, we see the display assembly and a branded render surface for the Samsung Galaxy S8. The third image is particularly interesting as it’s the first of its kind.

The display assembly for the Galaxy S8 doesn’t tell us anything new. Top and bottom bezels will be remarkably thin and the device will not feature a physical home button. Samsung, like Apple, will equip the Galaxy S8 with a pressure sensitive home button. The second image shows a render of the device with branding at its back. Branding here means the ‘Galaxy S8’ imprinted at the back. It’s a first of its kind, courtesy of Evan Blass. Apart from this, there are no other changes to the Galaxy S8.

You’ll see the same arrangement of Iris scanner, front camera, and microphone for the device. We’re eager to see what improvements Samsung has made to the Iris scanner. The feature first appeared on the ill-fated Note 7 but failed to gain traction due to the device’s early exit. Things will be clear in a week or so. Till then stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section below. We’ll keep you updated on the latest.
