The latest leaked render of the Galaxy S8 comes from Slash Leaks (spotted by GSMArena). The Galaxy S8 is seen sporting what looks like a Blue Coral color. Beginning with the front side of the smartphone, the Galaxy S8 in comparison with the one in the alleged live images, show a different design. The Galaxy S8 in the live images was seen sporting bezel-less display, but the leaked renders reveal the presence of the selfie camera lens above the display. The lower part of the display also shows the presence of bezel but without a Home button. This could either be one of the rumored variants with a flat display, or maybe a fake render.

The back of the smartphone though sports the same design as the live image. The camera lens is placed at the top centre along with the fingerprint scanner located next to it. The Samsung logo is also seen located below the camera lens. Three buttons allotted on the left side of the smartphone could take the role of the power button, and volume rocker.
