Although Samsung is expected to reveal its latest flagship device, the Galaxy S8 next month, leaked features of the smartphone are emerging as the event edges closer.

The latest, which surfaced in Twitter, for the first time show the alleged Galaxy S8 in working condition.

Samsung has removed side bezels on its edge device, and it is now expected to release the S8 without a physical home button, giving it a true bezel-less experience.

A separate leak by Android Police show instructional art of the smartphone featuring three virtual home keys that replace the home button.

The image also confirms earlier rumours, which suggested Samsung would relocate the finger print scanner at the back.

Did Samsung just leak the new Galaxy S8?


A second picture shows Samsung’s new dock for the S8, giving it a desktop-like experience. This new ‘DEX’ feature is expected to make the Android device function like a personal computer when docked.


Is this what Samsung S8 looks like?

Though the phone is expected to skip this year's Mobile World Congress event, we suspect to get a peek at Samsung's next big thing shortly after.
