The behind of a device is really identical to final year’s Galaxy S7 (with a difference being a relocated fingerprint sensor), though a front outlines a sincerely radical depart from Samsung’s standard design.

New to a S8 is a USB-C jack, and Samsung is indeed gripping a headphone jack around.

The cameras will reportedly go mostly unvaried from final year’s models, though will benefit new program features; a iris scanner initial seen in a removed Note 7 will also be carried over to Samsung’s latest smartphone. The device competence be labelled aloft than a S7 that it’s succeeding; we should know some-more about that when Samsung binds a yet-to-be-announced Unpacked eventuality in New York City in March.
