All-screen designs, smaller bezels, no physical buttons, and curved displays… these are some of the things we expect from Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones this spring. The phones might be teased at MWC in late February, with Samsung expected to officially unveil the handsets a month later in late March. In the meantime, we’ve seen a barrage of leaks and renders featuring the unannounced handsets in support of the rumored design features mentioned above. The following video, however, offers us our best look yet at the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will have 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch displays, respectively, featuring a glass-and-metal sandwich design just like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 series phones.
The fingerprint sensor is placed on the back of the handset, flanking the slightly protruding camera. Interestingly, the report indicates that, contrary to some rumors, the Galaxy S8 Plus will not actually have a dual camera system like the one found on its main rival, the iPhone 7 Plus.
Other notable features include a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom next to a USB-C port, and an iris scanner. The additional hardware button that will reportedly invoke the Bixby virtual assistant on the Galaxy S8 isn’t featured in these designs, and neither is the SIM/microSD slot location.
