Galaxy S8 always-on home button and more revealed in leaked images (Update: even more images!)
Update: It’s been about 6 hours since we published our last Galaxy S8 leak, so it’s about time for another. Slashleaks has posted a handful of images, showing the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the wild.
This time, we’re getting a pretty good look at the phones side by side, as well as a clearer look at the Always On Display. There are also a few images of the devices’ hardware, showing off the front-facing camera sensor/iris scanner, top edge of the device, as well as the USB Type-C port on the bottom.
I know, these photos don’t really tell us anything new about the phones. But we didn’t think you folks would mind seeing a few more higher-res pictures of Samsung’s upcoming flagship.
Original post: The Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks just keep on coming. Yesterday, we came across a short video that showed us the front as well as the back of one of Samsung’s upcoming flagship devices. Today, a bunch of new images of the Galaxy S8 have appeared online, which leave little to the imagination.
The images, which you can see at the bottom of the post, reveal a few of the new features we can expect from the upcoming smartphones. We can see what looks like an IR blaster on top, which would mean you’ll be able to use it as a universal remote, however this could just be sticker residue or a placeholder for a sticker. Additionally, we also noticed the on-screen Home button that is visible at all times. This probably means that you’ll be able to turn on the display of the device just by tapping the button at the bottom of the screen.
Other than that, the images don’t really tell us anything we don’t already know. We can see the fingerprint scanner on the back, strangely placed next to the camera. You’ll find a USB-Type C port on the bottom along with a speaker and the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The power button and volume rocker are positioned on the left side, while the additional button rumored to offer quick access to Samsung’s digital assistant called Bixby can be found on the right side of the device. We can also see the large curved screen with small bezels, which Samsung is calling Infinity Display.
