Samsung will launch the much anticipated Galaxy S8 on March 29th in New York, this has been confirmed recently by a teaser from Samsung at the MWC.
We’ve got an idea from the numerous leaks and the teaser that this phone will have a screen with rounded corners, but thanks to Evan Blass ─ the most reliable gadgets leaker on the planet, we now know how would it actually look like.
Without mentioning the exact phone model (S8 or S8+) @evleaks tweeted the press image of the upcoming galaxy smartphone.

This image shows the front side of the phone featuring a dual curved screen with rounded corners. The top and bottom borders are also quite thin as compared to Galaxy S7 and S7 edge and they noticeably lack a Samsung logo and physical home key.
On the left there is the volume rocker and power key on the right. Furthermore there is one more physical button on the left, which is believed to be the dedicated Bixby AI key.
The screen size corresponds to the recently launched LG G6, which means that Galaxy S8 could also have a 2:1 aspect ratio, but it is too early to say anything about it.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Rumored Specs:
The recent leaks suggest that Galaxy S8 and S8+ will feature 5.7-inch and 6.1-inch screens respectively. These phone will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM with 64GB internal storage in the base models.
Just like the previous iterations the new Galaxy phones will have IP68 Dust and Water-resistance protection along with an Iris scanner unlocking mechanism. The phones will also support Wireless charging and NFC payments.
Samsung will join the Dual-Camera league with a primary 12-Megapixel Dual-Camera setup and possibly an 8-Megapixel auto-focus camera on the front with a dedicated LED flash.
The new phones will run on Android Nougat 7.1 out of the box, secured by Samsung Knox Mobile Enterprise Security.
