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
Galaxy S8 &

make sure how is the final product. You can also watch the Galaxy S8
