One of the most highly anticipated phones of 2017 is hardly a secret. The recent Galaxy S8 leaks have revealed virtually everything about the phone, including what appears to be the first genuine image of a Galaxy S8 prototype. That said, we’re yet to see any press renders leak from Samsung. However, a designer took it upon himself to create what seems to be the closest thing we have to an official Galaxy S8 press image.

Benjamin Geskin, who created various Galaxy S8 renders so far, posted on Twitter an image he made based on the Galaxy S8 imaged posted online a few days ago by famed leaker Evan Blass.

Here’s Blass picture:


And here’s Geskin’s render:

The image highlights some of the most notable Galaxy S8 design features, as seen in Blass’s leak. We’re looking at what appears to be a large, almost bezel-less dual edge display on the front. On the back, there’s a fingerprint sensor next to the single camera, and on the sides, we have a new button, likely needed to activate Bixby, the Galaxy S8’s virtual assistant.

That said, the image is not official, no matter what you might think. It hasn’t been leaked by Samsung, or anyone familiar with Samsung’s plans. It’s just a render based on a photo leak.

Samsung, meanwhile, is expected to unveil the Galaxy S8 on March 29th, and launch it in mid-April.
