Even more hands-on images of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus surface

Over the past few days, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus leaks have been flowing in quicker than fresh water from a tap, and today’s no different as we’re catching yet another glimpse of the handsets courtesy of an anonymous case maker. The images, which were snapped at close range, corroborate everything we’ve seen (and heard) about the units in past, including that they’ll sport gorgeous edge-to-edge Infinity Displays and a fingerprint scanner on the back.

This latest set of pictures also cast light on a feature we’ve picked up on, but were skeptical about — a physical home button (pictured above) on the back of the Galaxy S8 Plus. It’s hardly a secret that both devices will sport on-screen keys, but there’s no denying the fact that the mysterious button in this image looks an awful lot like a shortened version of the traditional home key found on Samsung’s previous flagships.

Hate the volume rocker…I like individual buttons instead.

Also, like everyone else I am cynical about the fingerprint scanner.

I am not really a fan of the new design, highly impractical.

So far it looks sleek but usability options will be reserved until some one else reviews it or i hold it myself but i like what i see.
things i wanna see :
1) Double tap to wake.
2) Faster and cooler fast charging because Dash Charge is the shit.
3) Hope iris scanning is faster and works through glasses / sunglasses.
4) Lighter UI

Are people looking at the first pic, the guy is holding the device at the edge and his thumb goes past half way up the screen, This really does look to be a small device with a big screen (obviously he could just have very large hands, but I don’t think so). I don’t think the fingerprint placement will cause camera lens issues, I’ve not had problems when reaching the Heart rate sensor, its not the best spot, I agree. but I really don’t think it is as big as problem as the screen being nearly bezelless, they have to have the best palm reject technology in order for this to work

These are definitely INDUSTRY LEADING HANDSETS nothing will top the S8 and S8Plus until the Note8 and NoteFold in September.

Samsung has always been the one who pushes innovation and provides innovative solutions and feature implementations to it’s users and the industry.

Definitely expect 60 to 70 million S8 and S8Plus sold in 2017. #SamsungIsAndroid

Hardly, maybe between 40-50 mil. the price for this device will be very high, so no to 60 or 70 mil. lol

Reaching the fingerprint is half of the problem…
Touching the camera glass is the other half, cause everytime you wanna touch the fingerprint pad, you will touch the camera screen by mistake and fill it with your prints…and you have to clean it ! that’s ridiculous ! lens has to be away from everything, otherwise we will have to clean it every 2mn !

I’m growing tired of this complaint … can wait until some one has the phone in hand to see if it will really be an issue because it takes the place of the old heart rate sensor if you used to you that it will be no issue and there is also iris scanning.

Yep, until you get used to it. And then it will not be a problem anymore.

Could be impractical if some sort of pressing is required, unwieldy due to large size. Will reserve judgment until I buy, right after I sell my kidney.

im hoping that the fingerprint is always on and the screen supports double tap to wake at that size and height.

Mate, there is a feature called one-handed mode so you know

Yo should read again… You talk from your point of view, in your world you need to use your phone with one hand. Well, I have news for you, there is a world beyond yours and people actually use phones with two hands.

I have a note 7. The problem with the iris scanner is that you first have to always pick up the phone, then swipe, then lift it up to your face. That’s never as fast as a fingerprint scanner placed in front of the screen.

That’s a different story … after people use it then we can bash it for what ever. The LG G6 is the same way (tall and narrow) and most of the reviews are positive for in hand feel and knowing Samsung there will be gestures for the notification shade etc.

I use my S7 Edge with two hands as well. What is the problem?? We are not in the Steve Jobs era anymore..

But yeah your response satisfied me as you did not come back with one single fact.

So I have to be right!

They, want you to use its IRIS scanner, and the latest tech of iris scanners work through sunglasses as well.

The new wireless charger works as a stand instead of a pad, you won’t bend over ( no pun intended ) if you upgrade your gear :)

Don’t you find fingerprint reader little bit to high? Get S7 Edge to your hand and try to reach it with your finger. You have to choose between the reader or comfortable grip in your hand. After reaching the reader you have to change the position of the phone in your hand to operate it in comfortable way. What’s more S8 is higher than S7 Edge so it will be even more difficult to reach the camera area. I’m using fingerprint very often while I charge my phone wirelles, with S8 it will be impossible to just reach the phone and unlock it, you’ll have to bend yourself to unlock it with your eyes. This has nothing to do with the ergonomy.

For you maybe… For others the perfect size!
