Here’s live pictures of the Galaxy S8


Evan Blass got us excited for the Galaxy S8 yesterday and overnight the guys at BGR have gotten their hands on pictures of a Galaxy S8 in the wild.

The phone doesn’t show a huge amount that we haven’t seen already with the phone having a curved display and lacking any branding on the front of the phone. The Galaxy S8 will have the volume rocker and power button on the left side, with another button mounted on the right presumably for Bixby – Samsung’s virtual assistant.

The top of the phone is unexciting with a card slot presumably for SIM only, though a microSD card would be nice, but this isn’t confirmed. The bottom of the phone is slightly more interesting with a 3.5mm headphone jack present – guess they weren’t courageous enough to remove it.

Spec wise, the Galaxy S8 should arrive with a QHD+ resolution 5.7″ display, while the S8 Plus will come with a 6.2″ display. Under the hood we’ll see the first use of the powerful new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and 4GB of RAM, storage is expected to start at 64GB and if that microSD card is included we could see anything up to 2TB of storage able to be added.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will be announced at an event on March 29th in New York, but the way things are going there’s not going to be much left to announce.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I’m probably going against the grain , but i wish they’d not make the devices too thin , my old galaxy note width is about as thin i like them to get .
While thin is good for using with one hand , typing is not a lot fun, even viewing content is pretty average unless you have xray vision with the print condensed .

Corageous enough to remove the headphone jack 😱 ?

Still not a big fan of the Samsung UI. Also unsure about the location of finger sensor. To been seen if people can stretch enough and not also not keep pressing the camera lens instead

I know there are many engineering based decisions for smartphone design, but that fingerprint sensor location is pretty average in an otherwise very promising package

I was thinking the same , but given how slim some of these devices are getting with their thin bezels , it might not be as bad as looks ….. Hopefully .

Is that a USB-C port?

Nice.
Love the new look of buttons at the bottom. Just not sure about the location of fingerprint reader at the back. Need to try to see if it makes sense.
