Galaxy S8 press shot released with March 29th date on display

Samsung confirmed the March 29th date of its upcoming Galaxy S8 announcement at MWC 2017 where it showcased its newest devices, the Galaxy Tab S3 and Galaxy Book. Now, however, the market is headed into the final month of teases and leaks, with a press shot released by none other than the VentureBeat reporter and renown leakster, Evan Blass himself.

The Galaxy S8 press shot shows the confirmed announcement date, along with a wallpaper that looks rather similar to that of the Galaxy Note 7. A Pearl Black color is also seen here (appearing similar to the newest Galaxy S7 edge color), not to mention the sleek form factor that Samsung teased earlier with the Galaxy S8 signup page and “Unbox Your Phone” mantra. Galaxy S8 press shot evleaks A closer look at the Galaxy S8 (it’s hard to tell if the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 or the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ is shown here) shows the iris scanner/camera, along with the volume rocker on the left, the dedicated Bixby AI button, and the power/standby button on the right side. The little white screen “slither” you see on the phone’s right near the power button teases the dual-edge functionality that yields the Edge Panels when swiped from right to left.

Apart from the iris scanner, Bixby button, and dual-edge design (along with the ultra-thin bezels), little else is seen here. This press release shot continues to drill home the point that Samsung will announce the next Galaxy on March 29th (presumably around 12:23PM, since that is the time listed on the device).

Alongside of the 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved Super AMOLED panels, 8MP front/12MP Dual Pixel back camera combo, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 SoC, Samsung has said that it intends to bundle a pair of Harman AKG headphones into every Galaxy S8 box – which means that AKG audio is expanding beyond just the newly-announced Galaxy Tab S3.

Update: If you look at the bottom corners of the screen, you might notice that they’re not perfectly curved. There’s a chance of the image being a fake, so take it with a pinch of salt.

I wish we had a flat screen option, but since we don’t, I’m hoping for Note 7 like screen edges, S6/S7edge screen was too curved for my taste.
I’m waiting for this phone to arrive in stores, so i can see it, hold it and try it in person. Then i will make my decision whether to upgrade from my current phone or not.

Same here. Hoping to upgrade from my Note 7. If my Note 7 wasn’t banned on flights I’d have kept it for 2 years instead of one.

No OtterBox Defender case with the curved screen is going to be a no sell for me. I need it at work and don’t see this phone working for me. I’ll keep my s7.

Looks like a s7e with slightly less curve on the edges. Looks nice but will need to see how it performs and the final form size and specs.

Hopefully the top and bottom has more of a curve on the metal so that it’s not too flat brick looking

Also if possible to change the bixby button to be a dedicated camera button instead

the display looks like it has bevelled edges, which is kind of strange, i don’t think this will be true in real life, which make me think this is not quite official image…

The Wallpaper doesn’t look great or fit in well with their latest design language with the S7, Note7 or A 2017 series. and yeah, most probably is a fake

I don’t know if someone noticed the new Samsung Experience interface icons(phone and camera in the leaked picture). They will have a minimal design for icons and in my opinion they look nice.

It sure looks good. But not like note7. Not worth the money. I have always been wonderin., why a phone could cost this much.

Looks great! Not a fan of the black though. I’d probably get it in gold.
