Samsung Galaxy S8: pictures of the official hull
This time, the flight does not seem to come from South Korea but from a much closer country, Italy. It confirms several theses concerning Samsung's future high-end smartphone, which the group will not present at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of February 2017: the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Confirmed fingerprint reader as well as curved edges
The shape of the hull shown in these two photos, with the holes that go with it, make it possible to know a little more about the much-awaited model.
The site Samsung.hdblog.it seems to have a new exclusive for the Galaxy S8: two photos of what the site has as official cases of the phone or the protective shells that can be clipped to the back. The phone, like its predecessor the S7, obviously can not open to the back to change, for example, the battery.
One notices directly two holes on the two hulls, supposed to be for the two models of Galaxy S8. The left hole should be reserved for the camera while the right one would be the fingerprint reader. The confirmation, therefore, that the S8 will embark this technology well. But unlike the S7, where the reader was at the front, this time it would be in the back.
The shape of the shells presented here confirms, in addition, the curved edges strongly felt for the Galaxy S8.
A button dedicated to Bixby, the new assistant of Samsung?
In his interpretation of the leak in samsung.hdblog.it, the site SlashGear suppose a novelty: a button dedicated to the virtual assistant house of Samsung, Bixby, resulting from the acquisition by the South Korean giant Viv, founded by the creators Of Siri. A hazardous but probable supposition, although nothing is sure.
What the two shells confirm however are the two formats of the screens: one of 5.7 inches and one of 6.2 inches.
It will nevertheless wait until March 2017 to see the end of the story see or April?
