Samsung Galaxy S8, the next flagship from the South Korean tech giant, is yet to be unveiled to the general public, but the online leaks have revealed almost everything there is to be seen already. Today, as part of the same leaks that have been making the news, the official launch poster for Galaxy S8 has been spotted online, and it confirms an April release.
The words “Coming Soon Galaxy” are written on the poster, with a “2017.4” launch date at the bottom. Also, what looks like a huge “S” in the middle of the two metallic top and bottom edges of the phone is also visible at the top of the poster, hinting at the probable design of the upcoming flagship smartphone. The poster was posted on Twitter by @UniverseIce, and it virtually confirms some of the rumored design specs of the smartphone.
The phone appears to be positioned horizontally on the poster, with only the minor bezels visible, shining with a rainbow-like array of colors and packing the S between them. There’s no space for a physical Home button either, which also confirms reports that Samsung is set to embed the functionality into the display itself with S8. As for the fingerprint scanner, it is widely reported to be moved to the back, like a number of other Android handsets with fingerprint scanners at either the side or back of the devices.
When reached out for comment by TrustedReviews, Samsung responded in the typical “we don’t comment on rumor or speculation” manner, but there could hardly be a doubt that it is, indeed, the real thing. Moreover, some of the other rumored specs for Galaxy S8 feature 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 835, 64GB internal storage in the base model, and the return of the iris scanner found first on the now-dead Galaxy Note7.
