The Galaxy S8 rumor mill has been in full swing, but things always get serious when photos start surfacing across the Web. In this case, famous VentureBeat reporter Evan Blass (a.k.a @evleaks) who confirmed the Galaxy S8+ moniker last week is back with a Galaxy S8 clear case photo that proves that the Galaxy S8 does exist apart from assuming renders and that accessories are in order for the big announcement.
The photo doesn’t tell us much that we haven’t seen already, but we do notice the Speck logo at the top right of phone back (which would likely be the top left if you’re holding the phone) along with the lack of SAMSUNG branding at the top of the phone display, matching the first photo leak from Blass three weeks ago.
The fingerprint sensor remains back-mounted, perhaps intentionally so, and there is a third button on the left side of the front display (which retains the AOD) or a fourth physical button on the Galaxy S8 that is indeed the Bixby AI button renders have affirmed as of late. Additionally, the Galaxy S8 comes with a dual-curved display, a display of Samsung’s long-term panel investment that echoes Blass’s initial photo of the next Galaxy.
Blass’s leaked photo does not only confirm the Galaxy S8, but also the upcoming LG G6, that, in what is a revolutionary move for LG, does not feature a removable back cover and battery in contrast to years past. The LG G6 dual-camera combo on the backside of the phone is much improved from LG’s modular experiment last year.
