This could be the best look yet at the Samsung Galaxy S8 display
There’s been lots of speculation about what the Samsung Galaxy S8 will actually look like. Will it more closely resemble the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, Note 7, or will it take on an entirely different design?
Earlier this week, a Poland-based gadget leaker posted an image that may be our best look yet at the display design for the upcoming phone and its larger variant. The images, attached in the tweet below, seem to conform to earlier rumors about the look of Samsung’s next flagship device.
Według mojego dostawcy szkieł S8 nie będzie miał wersji flat O.o Ma być S8 i S8 Plus. Do tej pory się nie mylił… pic.twitter.com/sExMoISPY4— DforDesign (@dfordesign) January 16, 2017
The image was posted by the DforDesign Twitter account, and shows two display shells that are supposed to be for the Galaxy S8 and the larger S8 Plus. Both look like they have curved screens with very little bezel. They also both look much like the smartphone mockup that was used in the recent videos from Samsung’s Display division.
Android Police also points out the many sensor windows on top of both display shells, which may indicate the Galaxy S8 could have features like iris scanning that was included in the aborted Galaxy Note 7. In any case, bear in mind that this image has not been confirmed as coming from Samsung, and it could just be a clever mockup, so take this report with a grain of salt appropriate for this kind of leak.
Current rumors point to Samsung officially announcing the Galaxy S8 sometime in April, with an official launch happening shortly afterwards. In the meantime, do you want the Galaxy S8 to have a curved display with almost no bezel? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
