The Mobile World Congress 2017 will begin in just a few days, with several flagship devices waiting to be launched.
Companies like Nokia, Huawei, Samsung and more are eagerly waiting for this event to showcase their devices to the world.
However, there is one smartphone which though it wouldn't be announced or unveiled at MWC is still creating quite a hype in the tech circle. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is stealing the spotlight from other upcoming devices ahead of their MWC launch.
The Leak: What Does It Reveal
On Feb. 25, notable leakster Evan Blass shared an image on Twitter, featuring the sign-up page for the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The image shared by Blass shows "Unbox your phone" written on a black backdrop and "Sign up to be among the first to know about the Next Galaxy" written below it.

Apart from this, the image shows traces of the partial design of Samsung Galaxy S8, which looks strikingly similar to the phone design discovered in Galaxy S7's secure Folder App (which arrived with Android N). The image features rounded corners and a bezel-less display.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to come loaded with a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Display, with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
Expected to be powered by the all new octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor, the rumored device may feature 4 GB of RAM and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The Galaxy S8 is also expected to feature an Always-On display mode, which allows the users to check the time, notifications, and date, without actually waking up the device. The handset may likely come loaded with both an iris and fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint scanner is positioned right beside the rear camera, on the right hand side of the back panel.
The LED flash may be positioned beside the main camera on the left hand side of the back panel. Pertaining to few of the early rumors, it is speculated that the smartphone may also feature a high screen-to-body ratio and may also dump the home button.
Samsung won't be launching the device at the upcoming MWC trade show to be held in Barcelona, Spain. The device may be launched on March 29 in a separate Samsung event rumored to be held in New York.
Samsung fans, however, can expect a short teaser of the Galaxy S8 at the MWC as hinted by the company.
