Following a detailed render of the Samsung Galaxy S8 leaked by tipster Evan Blass, the new Samsung flagship has been revealed in a series of photos by mobile site BGR, showing barely-there bezels akin to the recently-announced LG G6 and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The phone pictured is a 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 — not its plus-size sibling, the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ — though most elements apart from the size of their Quad HD+ Super AMOLED displays are expected to be nearly identical, according to BGR. Both have curved edges on either side of the phone and rounded sides.


Amidst the pictures, the blog also detailed several specs, stating that it will stock a Snapdragon 835 chipset in the U.S. with a comparable Exynos in ‘international markets’ — whether or not that includes Canada is yet to be seen. Both variants will reportedly get 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage, expandable by microSDXC.

As for camera setup, BGR says the device has a 12-megapixel Dual Pixel camera and 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back, in order to offer an almost all-screen design. The device also uses iris-scanning, like the well-reviewed but ill-fated Note 7.

Along the bottom of the device is a USB Type-C charging port, speaker and 3.5mm headphone jack — likely to the relief of Samsung fans with expensive wired headphones. Both devices are also rated IP68 for water and dust resistance.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be revealed in New York City on March 29th and are expected to launch globally April 21st.
