Pundits on the web reckon this latest leak for the Galaxy S8 could be the real deal.

If true, it's going to be a shame to cover up some of that beautiful polished stainless with a case.

 

Looking again, could that be S8 or maybe S8 Edge?





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Really? Most pundits I've read tend to agree that's a mock up.

I'm not sure, no sign of any smoke or sparks

Rumour is that the flat screen option is gone, only curved will be on offer.

 

Headphone jack also rumoured to history as well )-:

I really doubt they'd remove the headphone jack only months after literally mocking apple. It would guarantee I never buy another Samsung devices.

10000000000000% disagree. 

 

Hardware buttons one of the only reasons I bought Samsung the past few years. SO convenient.

 

Plenty of devices around without them, buy one of those and leave my hardware buttons alone.

Doesn't look sleek as a black iPhone though. I mean if one were to judge a phone by its looks... A bit bling for my liking

I feel the same way about my 3.5mm headphone jack.

 

We should both prepare to be disappointed.

I am an audiophile (sort of) and I am not worried about the headphone jack, it's convenient. My issue is that everyone will end up with a different standard for headphones. Apple will use lightning and Samsung USB-C. It's a PITA

Shall I start laughing now, or when you buy your next Samsung?

I thought the same way, until I used a phone without it for more than a month.

 

 

 

I'm quite happy never using a samsung phone again. POS's

Pfft, please qualify what makes them POS?

 

They have leading spec hardware, excellent warranties, pretty good 24/7 support....
