Samsung Galaxy S8 to be Released on April 28, Plus We Have New Images


It’s still early March and the leaked images of the upcoming Galaxy S8 duo keep rolling in. Before we get to the new images, new information has surfaced on the release date of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. According to Venture Beat, the S8 and S8+ are now scheduled for a global release on April 28 and not April 21, as previously reported by them.

Regardless of this change in the release date, the unpacked event scheduled for March 29 is still on track. Samsung plans on revealing two handsets on the 29th; the 5.8 inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2 inch Galaxy S8+. Besides the size difference, both devices are identical, from the QHD+ Super AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, to the Bixby digital assistant triggered by a dedicated hardware button.

Now, on to the leaked images, there is a fresh new batch of images to add to the collection, really crystal-clear ones, at that. Point to note, the front-facing photo seems to show a lock screen, with some sort of “starry night” background effect. Which is consistent with the previous leaks that the S8 and S8+ would have an always-on display (plus a visible home button on the lock screen).

Below are all the new images that we have come across:
