At the front, it does have many sensors and also an iris scanner like the Samsung Galaxy S8 but it doesn't really work like one.

But rather than being the usual black colour option we've seen leaked numerous times before, this time around, the handset in the shots comes with a violet finish. As per the insight, Samsung Galaxy S8 will be retailed in Europe at €799 and the higher end variant: Galaxy S8 Plus will be price tagged at €899 only. He has also revealed the prices of some accessories that are expected to go on sale alongside the smartphones.

The images have been leaked by one of the most popular leakster Evan Blass.

It is interesting to note that according to a recent leak, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are also anticipated to come in seven different colors: gold, silver, orchid, blue, matte black, jet black, and pink.

If you'd like to accessorize your new Galaxy S8, you could be paying €129 for a Gear VR headset and €229 for a Gear 360 camera. However, the availability of these is expected to vary depending on the market of launch.

These prices are actually in line with what the Samsung Galaxy S8 price reports we got from China early in February. The announcement is scheduled for March 29 in NY, with April 21 rumored to be the release date of the phone. Samsung Galaxy S8 may have the same display size, however, there are reports that it will be 5.5-inches but with significantly less bezels for ultimate display maximization.

Samsung first unveiled the Galaxy Tab S3 at the World Mobile Congress last February, but they did not announce an official launch date or price point for the long-awaited tablet. The device will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 depending on the region of sale. None of these colors are new from Samsung but the names surely are. This feature may also work with third-party financial apps and not just Samsung Pay.

It's also the slimmest chip the company has ever made and is far more efficient than many processors now available on the market. A non-removable 3,300mAh battery powers the soon to be released Samsung phone giving it a decent backup.

Given that Samsung has openly mocked Apple's controversial decision to drop the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, it seems safe to assume that the S8 will offer the familiar audio connection.
