First photo of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 allegedly leaks out


Samsung has a big phone release ahead of them, especially on the heels of last year’s Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, and they’re hoping the Galaxy S8 is a device to set things back on track.

There have already been a few rumors regarding the upcoming flagship, including ones that suggest the handset will have minimized bezels and get rid of the capacitive buttons below the display. Thanks to a photo shared on SlashLeaks, the first look at the handset in the wild has been captured.

The minimized bezel below the display will drop the capacitive buttons, and instead replace them with a Samsung logo. We only get to see the front of the gold handset, so we don’t get to see the back and discover what changes Samsung might have included.

The one thing to note here is that there aren’t any software keys on display at all. Those can be hidden, yes, but it’s just worth pointing out their lack of presence when it comes to a photo like this.

What do you think of the Galaxy S8, if this is indeed the handset set to launch later this year?
