A new flagship smartphone from Samsung is an exciting thing in and of itself. However, it looks like Samsung's retail partners will have some nifty promotions tied to the South Korean handset maker's upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ launch. Target, for example, is going to offer a $100 gift card and a free Samsung Gear VR headset to anyone who pre-orders one of Samsung's upcoming flagships. The promotion appears in a leaked ad preview from Target's weekly catalog covering deals valid from April 2 to April 8. Unfortunately, the original source was asked by (and complied with) Target to remove the... Read more...
  Just like we mentioned earlier this week, the Galaxy S8 leaks are going to pick up in speed as we approach the March 29th “Unpacked” event in New York City. With that in mind, we have two new leaks for you today that slowly lift the veil on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The first leak is rather mundane, and simply gives us a look at the retail packaging for the Galaxy S8+; specifically the Verizon version of Samsung's flagship Android smartphone. The packaging tells us that the smartphone will be available in a 64GB SKU, and that the in-box contents are standard fare (i.e., SIM card, USB-C... Read more...
We’ve been hearing about Samsung’s upcoming Bixby virtual assistant for a quite a while, but the South Korean company is now ready to talk about what exactly how smartphone users will interact with it when the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ launch globally next month. Samsung’s entry into the world of virtual assistants comes late in the game following successful entries from Apple (Siri), Google (Google Assistant), Microsoft (Cortana) and of course Amazon (Alexa). Instead of being a copycat of virtual assistants that have come before it, Bixby instead tries to chart its own course. “Instead of humans... Read more...
Today we have two more Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+ leaks to present to you, and there should be more on the way as we lead up to the March 29th unveil of the flagship Android smartphones. This time around, reliable gadget leaker Evan Blass took to Twitter to give us information on both pricing and color options for the two smartphones. First of all, let’s talk pricing. Blass is confident that the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and DeX dock will be priced at 799€, 899€ and 150€ respectively upon launch. Converting that to USD gives us pricing of $850, $966 and $160 respectively. That pricing definitely keeps the... Read more...
You can almost feel the excitement in the air, as the Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+ unveil is about a week and a half away. However, in the meantime, we have a fresh benchmark to whet your appetite until the smartphones are officially unveiled and eventually find their way into the hands of reviewers and customers. The latest leak involves a Galaxy S8 (SM-G950), which can be seen running the AnTutTu benchmark in full. After the benchmark finishes, we see that the flagship Android smartphone garners a score of 205,284 points. Looking at the current ranking of production smartphones, the Apple iPhone 7 Plus...

Imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery, but if Apple seems a bit red in the face as of late, it's probably out of anger rather than blushing. Bear in mind that Apple has long accused rival Samsung of ripping off the look and design of its iPhone line for the company's own Galaxy devices. Now there are pictures floating around of a glossy black handset that is purported to be the Galaxy S8. Apple calls the color scheme "Jet Black," a new color option it introduced with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Knowing it would be a hit, Apple limited the Jet Black color option to its more premium... Read more...
When we first starting hearing early rumors concerning the Samsung Galaxy S8, it was widely suggested that the smartphone would ditch the home button (which is true) and would employ through-the-glass fingerprint reading technology (something that hasn’t come to fruition). A new report is shedding some light on why Samsung is instead using a less ergonomic rear fingerprint reader on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. If we roll back the clock a few months, you’ll remember that Synaptics announced the Natural ID FS9100 optical fingerprint sensor, which is capable of capturing high-resolution images through...

  As we fast approach the March 29th official unveil for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, we’re beginning to learn more details about both flagship smartphones. Earlier this week, the following image was provided which gives us a look at the [reported] 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 side-by-side with its 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ big brother. Image Source: SlashLeaks However, it would be nice to see how both smartphones stack up against their predecessors and the competitive set in the flagship smartphone arena. Luckily, OnLeaks has all of those bases covered with numerous renders. In the first render... Read more...
Samsung is playing things extra cautious with the impending release of its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. Rumor has it that Samsung has pushed back the launch once again, this time by just a week, which means the Galaxy S8 will make its much anticipated debuted on April 28 instead of April 21. It's the second launch delay so far, as Samsung has historically unveiled new flagship Galaxy phones during Mobile World Congress. That event has come and gone. News of the new launch date comes from Evan Blass, the infamous leaker who goes by @evleaks on Twitter. According to Blass, the "person... Read more...
The public reveal of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is a little over three weeks away, which means that the leaks are continuing to drip at a steady rate. The latest leak gives us a good look at the smartphone from nearly every angle while it is nestled within a clear, plastic case. We can clearly see the Galaxy S8’s massive Infinity Display Super AMOLED and the lack of a home button (which might take some getting used to on the part of long-time Galaxy owners). A close-up look at the area directly above the display also shows us what looks to be six sensors — we know that at least one of them is the... Read more...
You can always count on Evan Blass to spill the beans on all of the latest, unreleased smartphones and he has come through again with our best look yet at the Samsung Galaxy S8. The leaked press render gives us a clear look at the front of the device and its clear lack of a Home button. We can also see minimal bezels all around along with a bevy of sensors in the top bezel of the phone, which should encompass everything from the ambient light sensor to the front-facing camera to the iris scanner (first seen on the Galaxy Note 7, RIP). No additional details were provided with the image, although... Read more...
  Our favorite gadget leaker has just handed over specs for Samsung’s much ballyhooed Galaxy S8+ Android smartphone. The Galaxy S8+ will be Samsung’s next flagship, a distinction that it will share with its smaller Galaxy S8 sibling. According to Evan Blass, the Galaxy S8+ will have a massive 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution (3200x1800), which is a nice upgrade from the QHD (2560x1440) resolution displays found on previous generation Samsung flagships. Other specs aren’t too surprising given what we’ve learned about the phone over the past few months. The smartphone will... Read more...
New pictures and clipart images purporting to show Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 handset have emerged. They supposedly originate from an unnamed tipster who performed a system dump on an unannounced Galaxy Tab S3. The pictures are not labeled, but assuming they are in fact real, the pictures are consistent with previous rumors surrounding Samsung's next flagship handset.While it may seem odd that pictures of the Galaxy Note 8 would be on a pre-production tablet, it likely has to do with a syncing ability between it and the Galaxy S8 (or some other supported interaction). Have a look.The clipart... Read more...
This year’s Mobile World Congress kicks off later this month, but one of 2017’s most hotly anticipated smartphone won’t be on display. We’re talking of course about Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Samsung is rumored to officially launch the Galaxy S8 family on March 29th, with a global release taking place over one month later on April 21st. However, Samsung will give us just a little taste of what to expect with the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017. Kim Dong-jin, Samsung Chief Executive for the wireless division, says that the company will confirm launch details for the Galaxy S8 on February 26th, and... Read more...
