Render of a U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 makes an appearance

Tipster Evan Blass’ previous leaks of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ handsets were apparently international models. We come to that conclusion after Blass disseminated a tweet this morning showing another Galaxy S8 render in black. This time, the serial leaker came right out and called it a U.S. version of the phone. The only change we can see is the addition of the Galaxy S8 logo on the back of the device.

To see the biggest difference between the stateside Galaxy S8 and the overseas variant requires that you have X-ray vision. That is because the international model of the phone is powered …

If you’ve lost count of all the rumors, leaks, and teasers about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8, worry not – we did too. At this point, we can’t help but suspect that Samsung might be behind the barrage of leaked material, but whether intentional or not, the effect of this “campaign” has been clearly beneficial – our interest grows proportionally to the amount of released information.

At this point, we aren’t sure whether it is really leakers or actually Samsung offloading all that Galaxy S8 leaked material onto the internet. Not that it really matters, anyway – it’s all free advertising for a smartphone that virtually doesn’t need any. The latest batch of leaked shots is precisely that – a bunch of promos ready to go into magazines, brochures, and ultimately – your mind.

Note that none of the Galaxy S8 promos include a Home button or a key to summon the virtual assistant. Both items were featured in previous leaks at one point or another, but – assuming these really …
