Samsung has lead the Android mobile phone market for at least a half-decade, but the Galaxy Note 7 misfortune past year lost the company goodwill with consumers after its phones exploded in trousers, hotel rooms, aircrafts, and elsewhere. The glass back on the S8 and S8+ is also rounded on the sides so the phones sit comfortably in the user's hand.
At the 2017 MWC, Samsung released a clip showing the evolution of its smartphones. But a new leak gives us a more complete look of what could be the Samsung Galaxy S8's full-body design. One other important thing to point out something that isn't there - a home button.
The processor for the USA bound versions of the phones is expected to be the Snapdragon 835, a chip that Samsung was thought to have exclusivity of until its phones were released, however Qualcomm has since denied those rumours.
The image lines up with past rumors concerning the device, which have pointed to a phone with negligible bezels that help fit a large, curl display.

It is estimated that Durban would have to pay 8.2 billion rand (£507.2 million/$630.1 million/€594.6 million) to host the event. In December, South African officials had said the country was "fully committed" to hosting the event.
In addition, the company has set the date for the Galaxy Unboxing event of the year. The larger Galaxy S8+ version features a 6.2-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display compared to the 5.8-inch screen on the S8, and the battery in the plus model is larger as well.
Samsung is now set to officially announce the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus on March 29 (the date shown on the leaked photo) at a launch event in NY. The fingerprint sensor will also be found at the rear of the device along side the camera.
Rumours suggests that Bixby will support image recognition and image search with the help of front facing camera and will also help in enforcing rich security measures using Iris Scanner while making transactions. On the bottom of the phone lies a speaker, a USB-C port and yes, a 3.5mm headphone jack. Apple caused quite a stir when they chose to remove the audio port from its most recent flagships, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
