Samsung Galaxy S8 has been leaked in a rendered image ahead of its expected launch on March 29. A Twitter user with handle @VenyaGeskin1 has tweeted Galaxy S8 render in black colour variant. The back panel looks a lot like Samsung’s S7 series smartphones, and even the size seems similar to the older phones.

Of course, as with any leak, it needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. Plus it’s a little unconvincing, given that reports claim Samsung Galaxy S8 will be a much bigger phone. Samsung will reportedly launch a Plus version of the S8 as well.

However, Samsung will give the Galaxy S8 gets a bezel-less display and a dedicated button to launch company’s upcoming voice assistant Bixby. Samsung’s artificial intelligence-based voice assistant will be unveiled alongside the flagship S8 smartphone. The Korean smartphone maker has already confirmed its new phones will come with the voice-assistant, which will rely on machine-learning, and be capable of image-based search as well.

In a separate leak, images of ‘official S8 cases’ were being circulated on Weibo. The Galaxy S8 case images confirm the smartphone will come in two variants – S8 and S8 Plus – based on display size and that the fingerprint scanner is being shifted to the back. Plus, there will be no home button. Another bit of information: there will be a dedicated button for Bixby.
