I’d like to apologise to you all for yet another Samsung Galaxy S8 leak post but it would be remiss of us not to at least have one post with all of the random Galaxy S8 images that surfaced overnight. Is it nearly the 30th of March? Anyone else suspect Samsung had this planned so that every single piece of news item is about them and isn’t getting lost, for example, in the lead-up to MWC and other launches?
I won’t string this out but will just say that we saw /Leaks (@Slashleaks) come out with a few showing images of a Galaxy S8 dummy phone compared to a Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S8 with display on, the Galaxy S8 side by side with an iPhone 7 and a Galaxy S7 Edge, and finally the AKG earphones that come in the box with the Galaxy S8. KK Sneak Leaks chimed in with a couple of their own showing the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus turned on as well as an actual hands on video of a violet coloured Galaxy S8 (which looks like a dummy phone). Check them all out below:
The striking one here is the comparison to the Galaxy S7 Edge in my opinion. It is astounding what Samsung have done with minimising the bezels compared to last year’s flagship. The display looks amazing in all shots and the curved display really does make the phone look stunning, although I still hear a lot of complaints about everyday use with the curved display.
That will do for this morning. Sound off in the comments below regarding your thoughts on not just the phones themselves but the prevalence of all these leaks. Seems to be so much more than in previous years — and yet there is still 10 days until the official announcement. Stay tuned.
