Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date Joined By New Photos

It would appear that the Samsung Galaxy S8 has leaked in a collection of real-world photos. These photos come via BGR where an anonymous source seems to have captured photos of almost every angle of the Galaxy S8. This device has a larger edition called the Samsung Galaxy S8+, but the one pictured here is the more standard-sized version.

Watch out for the suspiciously-sized fingernail in the photo below. SlashGear does not condone the keeping of nails at this length – for any reason, any reason at all. The hand is holding a Galaxy S8, it would appear, a device that's rolling with a 5.8-inch display with 2K resolution and Super AMOLED technology.

It looks like this device's body is pretty gosh-darned tall and skinny for a 5.8-inch display. Of course it might just SEEM large because the standard size for the Galaxy S7 was just 5.5-inches. Samsung's ramping up and up, always aiming for the ideal size each year as it changes based on consumer desires.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus will almost certainly come with a 6.2-inch display that's also 2K and Super AMOLED. The term "2K" is also known as Quad HD+, or 2560 x 1880 pixels, just about right for a 6.2-inch display. And well and above sharp enough for a 5.8-inch display.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 shown here has a curved edge display up front. That's curved on both the left and the right, just like past Samsung Galaxy Edge devices. Below you'll see a set of specifications based on past leaks and anonymous tips from sources close to the information.
