Samsung is going to announce the new Galaxy S8 at its March 29 event, but someone was too impatient, and published photos and a short video of the phone, which spread viral immediately.
Here’s an short video that was posted on Slashleak’s Youtube Channel, on which we can clearly see the changes that Samsung is making for the new Galaxy S series.
Let’s take a look at it :
There’s a kind of mysterious on-screen button in the middle of the screen, which could be “Bixby” Samsung’s new ‘intelligent interface’ for smartphones and beyond.
It seems like Samsung moved the fingerprint sensor to the back of the phone.
As shown in the S8 leak video, Samsung replaced the old on-screen buttons with new capacitive touch buttons which have been ditched in the bottom border of the screen.
Even Blass recently tweeted that the phone will retail in Europe for 799 € for the basic S8, while the S8+ will retail for 899 €. He also revealed the prices of some accessories for the phone: the DeX docking station, a new GearVR headset, and Gear 360 camera.
S8 – 799€
S8+ – 899€
DeX – 150€
GearVR – 129€
Gear360 – 229€ https://t.co/vVm6DRMkX5
