The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been seeing some rather wild rumors. After the failure of the Galaxy Note 7, the Korean tech giant's in a tough spot. It's either make or break for Samsung in the tech world. Things move fast and two consecutive failures or disappointments might spell irrevocable damage for the company. To make up for lost gains, the Galaxy S8 will feature a lot of upgrades. Or at least that's what the rumor mill wants us to believe. Today, we've got more news from an alleged Samsung employee. Take a look below to find out more.

Alleged Samsung Employee Confirms Previous Leaks For The Device

The Galaxy S8 has been so popular on the rumor mill that it's caused Samsung itself to issue a blanket ban on leaks. The company's head of mobile in the East issued strict instructions to employees for non-disclosure on all things Galaxy S8. As is customary, the information itself soon appeared in Korean media. Now, an alleged Samsung employee appears to have confirmed a lot of details that we've heard about the device.

To recap, the Galaxy S8 is rumored to feature two screen sizes. These will be 5 and 6 inches with no home button.
