We gotta say. All these leaks and rumors related to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have saved the Korean tech giant a lot of money for advertisement.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Wee Official Event Poster Leak With Button Free Front
Amidst all the upgrades related to camera, performance and brownie features, smartphone design and display have been thrust on the back-burner. The only major upgrade over the past couple of years has been OLED displays. Japanese manufacturer Sony, upped the bar significantly at MWC with the Xperia XZ Premium. Sony's smartphone will feature a 4K HDR display, a first for the mobile world.
LG and Samsung take a different approach this year. The pair will mess around with aspect ratios. The LG G6 features a 18:9 aspect ratio, which is another first for smartphones this year. Now, Samsung will follow a similar approach with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The pair will feature remarkably thin front bezels. Now, take a look at an alleged Galaxy S8 poster which shows the exact same thing.
With this image(s), you can take it for granted that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will not feature any buttons on their front. The fingerprint sensor on the devices will be relegated to the back. Samsung initially planned to use virtual fingerprint recognition for the pair but due to production delays, the feature was shelved off at the last moment. The company will also launch the device in seven color options, a first for the company who generally takes a more sober approach with its smartphones.
Samsung has also got a lot riding on its upcoming launches. It failed miserably with the Galaxy Note 7 and is facing trouble with the Korean government once again. Allegations of bribery against the Lee family aren't new but this time, things look pretty serious, especially as ex Korean president, Park Geun-hye is involved. Thoughts?
