First Look of Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8+

World just can’t wait to witness the most anticipated device Samsung Galaxy S8 & Samsung Galaxy S8 plus. Mobile World Congress witnessed the launch of major smart phones like LG G6, Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6. What they didn’t saw was the new flagship from Samsung. The brand usually follows the trend of launching its flagship device every year, but this time, the brand took a new turn when it launched two tablets, Galaxy Tab S3 and the Galaxy Book, and a controller for its Gear VR headset.

However, we don’t have to speculate about the announcement date of the Galaxy S8 anymore as Samsung itself has now announced that they will be launching its next flagship on 29th March 2017 at an event held in both London and New York. No official information regarding the handset has been announced yet.

Check Full Leaked Specifications of Samsung Galaxy S8

During the last couple of weeks, we have seen a lot of leaks regarding the Galaxy S8 which have mostly confirmed us how the next flagship from Samsung might look.

Following pictures shows how the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be operational:

In the above pictures, you can clearly see the Samsung Galaxy S8 in all its glory. The phone flaunts a thin design with a bezel less display, as expected. You can also see the navigation keys on the screen. Samsung has decided to get rid of the home button and capacitive hardware buttons in favor of software buttons in order to have smaller bezels.

However, as seen in the above photo, there is a fingerprint scanner to the rear of the phone, which might not be liked by some users.

Apart from the latest pictures available above, we also got to see the Samsung Galaxy S8 in action two very short videos In the first video you can clearly see two Galaxy S8s and they both look absolutely gorgeous in that black color. The software capacitive back, home and recent apps keys are also visible.

The order of the key are in opposite to that used in Nexus or Pixel phones and we really hope that the order of the buttons can be switched, just like it can be done with LG phones. Previous Samsung owners although feel just at home with the order of the buttons.

Always-On Display is also available as seen from the video. The person making the video wasn’t very thorough with showing off the device but it still gave us a very clear view of the S8.

The second video shows the Galaxy S8 for just 15 seconds. It shows us only the Messaging app but we can see that the order of capacitive buttons were in reverse as compared to first video so that gives us hope that they are indeed changeable.

Finally, we also got our first look at the spec sheet of the Samsung Galaxy S8 & Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus , courtesy of Evan Blass.
