LEAKED: Samsung Galaxy S8+ specifications out, will feature an IRIS Scanner

Providing a brief look at the home screen, the pictures clearly show that Samsung is ditching the physical home button in favour of on-screen virtual buttons. However, the Galaxy S8 has lost its surprise factor because everything about it has been revealed in recent leaks. While Galaxy S8 is scheduled for launch in late March, the rumour mill has been buzzing with features of Samsung Galaxy Tab S3.

Purported actual photos of Samsung Galaxy S8 surfaced online.

Just recently, a new application from Samsung called Book Settings showed up in the Windows Store which seemingly hints at the existence of the Galaxy Book.

Most Android smartphones already have the function buttons on the display - Samsung is one of the last holdouts in keeping the capacitive function button on the bottom bezel.

The report also notes that Samsung will adopt a different marketing strategy and will be patient this time.

The source of the leak also suggests that the phone will be connected to the external display with the help of an HDMI connector.

The list also notes that it's secured by Samsung's Knox security service, and that it comes with earphones tuned by audio specialists AKG.

Flow was easily one of the features that we wished would have supported more Windows platforms, and with this news, it very well may. You just dock the phone on your desktop PC, and you give your desktop access to your mobile phone. Not only that, but we're seeing that Samsung is not going with the square, circle, triangle icons either and have opted for more traditional icons for its navigation bar.

Samsung Flow's PC unlock functionality was introduced as a companion feature for the company's Windows 10-powered Galaxy TabPro S tablet a year ago.

Right now, Flow works exclusively with the Galaxy Tab Pro S, which you set up by downloading the app and pairing the devices over NFC. It was easy to differentiate the Galaxy line as it had Android-powered devices earlier, though Samsung reserved its ATIV name for its Windows devices.
