Samsung Galaxy S8 Specs and Photo Leak Before March 29, 2017 Announcement

According to serial gadget leaker Evan Blass, the 2017 flagship Android smartphone of Korean Giant Samsung is going to look like this:


And looking at the official invite that I got from Samsung Philippines' PR agency - GreenBulb - for our local Unpacked Event happening on March 29, 2017, I guess Evan is on point yet again.


Of all top-of-the-line 2017 smartphones, Samsung Galaxy S8 along with its larger sibling - Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus - are clearly the most talked about and featured in leaks.

It doesn't come as a surprise, though, since their predecessors had likewise enjoyed the same attention prior to their launch.

Add to that the yearning for a new flagship handset that the brand's fans feel following the Note7 debacle and it's easy to get this through-the-roof level of anticipation.


Just to recap everything we've read so far, here are the purported or yet-to-be-confirmed technical specifications of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus phablet:

Again, these are not yet official -- so take them with a grain of sale. However, if you ask me, I think many of these details are already pretty much accurate. But that's just my hunch.

 

To quote the company, "Samsung has been the pioneer in offering not just premium but highly innovative smartphones. Every launch promises a leap beyond expectations as it dares to go beyond limits."

In line with that statement, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are indeed expected to set a new standard in terms of Android handset design, build, raw power, and imaging capabilities upon launch. Exciting, eh?
