Leaked Galaxy S8 Shows Samsung Is Now Lack Of Creativity
[Image: undefined]

A picture supposedly showing Samsung’s upcoming smartphone, the Galaxy S8, was posted on Venture Beat by reliable gadgets leaker Even Blass.
In his report, Blass also reinforces several claims and rumors from a report by The Guardian posted on Tuesday.

Below is the image posted on Blass’ Twitter account, @evleaks:
If the image is accurate, it shows that the Galaxy S8 will have a somewhat similar design to the Galaxy S7 Edge. Blass also claims the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back of the phone, to the right of the camera.
Unfortunately, the display isn’t powered on in the image, so we can’t see the extent of the Galaxy S8′s rumored ultra-narrow borders, which are said to give the front of the phone a “full-face” display. Supposedly, the display will occupy a larger area of the phone’s surface than the Galaxy Note 7, as well as most phones available.
Blass claims the two variants of the Galaxy S8 will have a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch displays, both of which are larger than the Galaxy S7 (5.1 inches) and S7 Edge (5.5). Both variants will allegedly have curved edges, like the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Additionally, the Galaxy S8 models are said to have new processors that give them an 11 percent overall performance boost over the Galaxy S7 while also being 20 percent more power efficient.
Despite better power efficient processors, Blass notes the battery life isn’t expected to improve, as the larger screens on the Galaxy S8 will draw more power than the Galaxy S7 models’ smaller screens.
The Galaxy S8 will allegedly have 4GB of RAM, which should help with speedy performance, and the base model will start with 64GB of storage compared to the 32GB base Galaxy S7 model.
Both Galaxy S8 models will apparently sport USB-C for charging and data transfers, as well as a headphone jack. (The silver model on the right in Blass’s image leak appears to have the older micro-USB port, but Blass noted in a tweet that it is indeed USB-C). Using USB-C would allow the Galaxy S8 phones to connect to a desktop setup with a monitor, keyboard, and mouse, like Microsoft’s Continuum feature, which The Guardian rumored on Tuesday.
