New images that reportedly show the smaller 5.8 inch model of the Samsung Galaxy S8 have hit the web, and they do seem to confirm a lot that we already knew.
The photos come from an unnamed source and were first posted on BGR. In the images, you can clearly see the headphone jack at the bottom of the Galaxy S8, along with its USB Type-C port and a speaker. While more and more smartphones have ditched the headphone jack lately, to make their devices slimmer, most people don’t like this trend, as it forces them to adopt to new standards that seem cumbersome, and it’s great to see Samsung keep this port.
The leaked photos also show the S8s large curved screen display, along with its front-facing camera, which is rumoured to be 8MP) and an iris scanner as well. It also shows the on-screen home, recent and back buttons very clearly.
The two sides of the Galaxy S8 are also seen in the leaked images. While one side shows what looks like the usual volume and power buttons, the other side shows another button which speculations say could be used to get access to the phone’s new Bixby voice-command digital assistant.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the larger 6.2 inch Galaxy S8+ are set to be officially unveiled on March 29, followed by a global launch of both models in mid-April.
