As the date for Samsung Galaxy S8 closes in, leaked images confirm that the phone might just come with a new dedicated artificial intelligence button.

Everyone seems to be waiting for the release of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and as days close in, leaked images of the phone show that it might come with a new dedicated artificial intelligence button as rumoured.

Tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) has posted yet another image claimed to show the Galaxy S8. The tweet reads, “I think this is what you’ve been waiting for”, and is accompanied by an image that shows a dedicated physical button at the left side. The company is said to be adding the dedicated button for Bixby - Samsung’s new AI assistant which will work with native apps as well. Unfortunately, we still don’t know how will the Bixby AI will be used on the Galaxy S8, and we will have to wait till March 29 when the company officially launches the new flagship.

The new leaked image also shows long and narrow display on the Samsung Galaxy S8. This tips that the company may adopt the 18:9 aspect ration, rather than the current industry standard of 16:9. LG’s new G6 also sports a 18:9 aspect ratio and bears a 5.7-inch FullVision display with a QHD plus resolution.

Other rumours also claim that the phone will ditch its home button, support wireless charging, will have an iris scanner and also will have better protection against water and dust. The phone is also expected to come with a bezel-less display and the newly launched Exynos processor.

However, rumours also claim that it might come with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. The handset is said to pack 64GB inbuilt storage while come with support for expandable storage via microSD card (up to 128GB). The Samsung Galaxy S8 is likely to sport 3,250mAh battery. Previous reports indicate the smartphone will only go on sale by April 21. Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is rumoured to cost EUR 100 (roughly Rs. 7,300) more than its predecessor.
