[Update 2: Now in gold!] Leaked image allegedly shows off front panels belonging to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus

Over the course of the past few days, we’ve seen an awful lot of leaked case renders surface online hinting at the design of the upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus — and now we’re getting yet another look at the devices. This time the image allegedly showcases the front panels of the units. As you can see, both models sport curved displays; effectively confirming that there will not be a variant with a flat screen.

We have to say that although this picture matches up to the leaked hands-on image of the Galaxy S8 that appeared on Weibo two weeks ago, it should still be taken with a considerable pinch of salt as it’s not uncommon for Samsung to distribute test units to employees in a prototype shell, in order to prevent the handset’s design from leaking out ahead of its official unveiling.

S8 Screen

 

Update: According to Android Police, what we’re looking at isn’t actually the glass cover panels for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, but rather a pair of tempered glass screen protectors produced by a third-company for the handsets. It’s believed that they were designed based on legitimate information provided by either Samsung or suppliers about the size, configuration and layout of the display.

Update 2: We have come across a new image showing off purported screen protectors (or front panels, if that’s what you want to believe) for the Galaxy S8, and this time, one of them comes in gold. There’s no word on what color options the Galaxy S8 will be released in, but gold is likely to be a part of the list given the color’s popularity in many markets.

I think that it looks amazing, even it is only a screen protector.
The main problem on the on-screen buttons are the AMOLED-Screen. I’ve had already burn ins of my status bar on my Galaxy S7 edge after 1 month of use. With these on-screen buttons there would be a burn-in after a week. But I don’t think, that Samsung didn’t thought about that and I think they have got a good solution for this.

I agree. If there is only one thing about the S8 which worries me, it would be this. But like you, I really think they are going to do something different. Maybe involving force-touch or super-small capacitive keys?

The glass looks subtly curved, maybe Samsung have decided to lessen the curves of the dual edge display and make it more flatter? Still think the Note7 nailed it though.

I hope these aren’t really and they will keep the physical and capactive buttons on the SGS8. As I don’t want to worry about my device getting screen burn-in.

If these are real. Or close to it. The holes could make sense…but it would have to have pretty everything you could want on the front.

-Earpiece (hopefully speaker too)
-Iris scanner
-Camera
-Flash
-Proximity/light sensor
-LED notification

So ? No flat varient ? Also will s8 plus have s pen inbuilt ? Or we have to wait more 6 months for it…

The amount of sensors/cameras is insane…
But this looks much more legit than anything else “leaked”. The shape of the top and bottom bezels resemble the arched iconic design of the Galaxy S.
I give it 8/10

Guys why don’t you upload firmware for galaxy S7 SM-G9300? That’s Chinese and Hong Kong version. From start till now there is not a single firmware available on this site. It’s my request please upload firmwares for SM-G9300.

Hands-on image that leaked about 2 weeks ago was obvious fake.

Could be real though bit disappointing that the curves are rounded and not as nice as the note 7 curves design.

It’s a screen protector, not the front panel of the phone.

If these are the real front panels of the S7/S7Plus than these phones are going to look amazing!
