Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks are intensifying as of late and an allegedly real-life image of the handset offers a glimpse of what it could look like.

Various leaks, rumors and reports so far have already revealed that the next-generation Samsung Galaxy S8 will have a sleek design with no physical home button and virtually no side bezels.

The alleged real-life image of the device seems to bolster such claims, as it does indeed show a smartphone with extra real estate after ditching the physical home button and side bezels.

This leak surfaced courtesy of Veniamin Geskin, who revealed a number of purported Galaxy S8 renders but no real-life images until this one. While his previous leaks looked like third-party concepts and renders based on rumors and expectations, the real-life image shows the device in the wild and falls in line with the previous leaks.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Real-Life Image (Allegedly)

Geskin actually shared this real-life image of the Samsung Galaxy S8 more than a week ago, but it did not go under the radar until now. We have no confirmation that this is indeed the real deal, showing the final design of the Galaxy S8 expected to debut in the next few months, but it might as well be.

Samsung is rumored to be preparing a design change and notable spec upgrades to make the Galaxy S8 stand out from the crowd and make up for the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, and the alleged real-life image Geskin leaked fits nicely within that frame.

The purported device shown here has a dual-edge curved display and Samsung's design language overall, but no physical home button – the company's brand name is located there instead.

The purported Galaxy S8 featured in this image also seems to have a metal and glass construction, albeit it's tough to tell for sure because it only shows the front side of the device.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Rumors

Based on previous leaks and rumors, Samsung plans to release two Galaxy S8 models – a "regular" Galaxy S8 and a larger Galaxy S8 Plus. Both models are expected to have curved-edge displays, as the company reportedly decided not to include a flat-screen variant this year.

Moreover, the company could also release the larger Galaxy S8 Plus with an S Pen stylus, which has so far been reserved for the Galaxy Note series of phablets. The stylus could either come bundled with the Galaxy S8 Plus, or be available as a separate purchase.

The Galaxy S8 series smartphones are expected to pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and the Exynos 8895 processors, based on region, 6 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of native storage space and microSD support for extra storage.

Samsung is expected to unveil the smartphone later than usual, skipping the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 and making the announcement at a separate event on Apr. 21.

It remains to be seen whether this real-life image purportedly showing the Galaxy S8 is the real deal or not, but it seems to be at least close to what the smartphone should look like. Nevertheless, take a hefty grain of salt with all leaks and rumors.
