Samsung Galaxy S8 image leaked online

A new image that claims to show the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 has been posted on the internet. In addition, the specs and launch plans have also been leaked and, if true, they reveal that Samsung’s going big this year. Literally.

According to notorious mobile tipster Evan Blass, viaVentureBeat, two new handsets will be available - a chunky 5.8 inchmodel and a gargantuan 6.2 inch version. The small handed need notapply.

The pictures seem to back up early rumours that the S8 wouldhave a curved screen that covers most of the front of the phone.It's so big, there's no room for a home button, or even Samsung'slogo. Blass suggests that as a result, Samsung may hard code the logo to the top of the screen, but that wouldseem something of an own-goal for a company that really needs a win right now.

Either way, the back will have the Samsung name, as well as afingerprint scanner and a 12 megapixel (MP) camera, the leakclaims.

Other specs include a 2,560 x 1,440 quad HD Super AMOLED screen,8MP front-facing camera, pressure sensitive touch screen, and -hooray! - a head phone jack. The phones will use Android Nougat, aSnapdragon 835 chip, and 4GB RAM.

According to Blass, the handsets will launch on March 29. The5.8 inch version will reportedly cost €799 (£680), while the6.2-inch model will run you a not-inconsiderable €899 (£770).
