Leaked! Samsung Galaxy S8 allegedly spotted in this promo video

Samsung Galaxy S8 Updates No Home Button

Samsung has a habit of showing off features on its flagship devices, and has, in the past, done so for the Samsung Pay feature in 2016.

The Galaxy S8 was expected to be launched in February this year, but has since been moved to April.

We're making an exception with the render below (which is based on this alleged Galaxy S8 case) because we think it's a good depiction of what Samsung is likely to be doing with the newest Galaxy S. The Galaxy C7 Pro comes with a large body, thanks to the 5.7-inch display with the 1080p resolution.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) has now been benchmarked on Geekbench.

Beyond stretching the screen and ditching the home button, the Galaxy S8 looks mostly familiar-at least as far as the hardware is concerned.

The company's screen-manufacturing arm, Samsung Display, has published two short advertisements showing off the capabilities of its displays.

We have already come across alleged renders and case designs for the upcoming Galaxy S8. Reports have suggested that Samsung has set an initial production target of 10 million units at the time of the launch of the S8. The Plus variant of the Galaxy S8 is expected to feature a dual-camera setup on the back. Galaxy J2 Ace is powered by a 1.4 GHz Quad Core processor, 1.5 GB RAM complemented with Turbo Speed Technology. As the benchmark below shows, the Galaxy J7 (2017) scored 889 on single-core performance and 4,200 on multi-core.

Galaxy J1 is backed by a 2050 mAh battery, whereas Galaxy J2 is backed with a more powerful 2600 mAh battery. The biggest and most obvious change is the lack of a home button, which means we could see the fingerprint sensor embedded under the glass, as many reports have promised. But this nondescript render is surely not the actual Galaxy S8.

Moreover, Samsung will also follow Apple's footsteps and ditch the 3.5mm audio jack meaning the USB-Type C port will double up as the audio port, like last year's Moto Z.
