Leaks of Samsung’s next flagship, which is anticipated by millions of people worldwide, have been appearing rapidly. When you’re likely to be the most popular Android device of the year, it comes with the territory. Prototypes and consumer-ready units are getting into the wrong hangs and thus surface online in images and videos for everyone to see.
Today’s leak comes from Weibo, a Chinese social network. It shows both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ side-by-side.
We’re seeing two color options here — white (left) and gold (right). Each has the same glassy finish, which is because Samsung prefers using materials like glass and metal for its high-end devices. And, once again, the on-screen navigation buttons are on full display in this leak. For the Galaxy S8, Samsung seems to be wanting the front of the phone to be almost entirely consumed by the display. Side bezels are practically nonexistent while the top and bottom bezels are extremely small.
The Unpacked event hosted by Samsung will take place on Wednesday, March 29.
