Yesterday, the Galaxy S7 Secure Folder app provided a sneak preview of what to expect from the upcoming Galaxy S8 and a gallery of leaked images have laid bare to the upcoming flagship from the top to the bottom. We have to say that the home button not being present at the bottom center definitely upgrades the aesthetics of the phone because now users will have access to more screen real estate and more enjoy content on a larger screen.
New Smartphone Gallery Leak of Galaxy S8 Shows New Color Models as Well Its Sleek Design Coupled With a Curved Edge Panel
The leaked gallery comes from the Twitter handle of a known leakster known as Ice Universe and what he shows is a brand new Galaxy smartphone that is unlike what you have seen before from the company’s previous iterations. First off, the company has retained the curved edge glass on both sides, showing that the smaller version and the larger phone, Galaxy S8 Plus are going to be incorporated with this panel. Consumers might have to pay a premium for this new approach, but at least you’ll gain access to the app panel without entering the app menu of the phone itself.
In addition, you can see that the home button is no longer present at the front side of the device. Instead, it is either placed beneath the display or mounted at the rear side of the phone. From what we have seen from previous renders and leaks, the phone will have also have a dedicated button placed next to the fingerprint reader for you to summon the AI assistant that is being referred to as Bixby.
There are several glass circulars present at the top of the phone, and we’re assuming that this is going to be for both the front camera as well as for the rumored iris scanner. Both lenses are being protected by the glass so it looks like household items like keys, pins, and coins are not going to be inflicting any damage on this glass, but make sure not to drop the phone otherwise, you will permanently ruin the metal and glass finish.
