Here is everything you need to know about the Galaxy S8.

Colors aside, these and the images of the Galaxy S8 alongside other handsets match up with what we've seen before, showing an nearly all-screen front, virtual home, back and recent keys, and an extra sensor at the top, likely housing an iris scanner.

Users could also be treated to a better camera that is rumoured to be able to shoot video at 1,000 frames per second.

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

Other than the color variant of the device, all the other things that were expected to come with the Samsung Galaxy S8 is clearly visible. According to him, the new Gear VR will land at 129€ ($138 USD) and the new Gear 360 camera will land at 229€ ($246). Likewise, several recent rumors suggested that the 128GB models of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus will be exclusively available in China during the launch period of both handsets. The device is expected to launch in a total of seven colour options.

Controversial penalty lifts Juve
Milan players were furious after the referee gave the home side a spot-kick when he judged Mattia De Sciglio to have handled. Gab Marcotti examines the controversial penalty decision in stoppage time that saw Juventus past AC Milan.

Based on some insider reports and leaks from reliable sources, some details of both Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 are out enough for industry experts to make detailed comparison. Earlier reports had mentioned that the handsets will have a virtual Home button. According to the reports, Samsung has no plans to ditch the headphone jack in its smartphones including the Galaxy S8. So expect the Galaxy S8 to be no bigger than the Galaxy S7 Edge, or maybe even smaller - and the S8+ similar to the Note 7 in size.

Since OnePlus 3T uses a Snapdragon 821 SoC, these tests show that the Snapdragon 835 is indeed a massive improvement over not just its predecessor, but also Apple's A10 Fusion processor that powers the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Further, comes equipped with a 3,000 mAh battery, 12MP dual rear camera and 8MP front camera.

A recent report from South Korean publication The Investor says that Samsung Display is now manufacturing panels which are able to perform 3D Touch or Force Touch for the upcoming iPhones.

Recently, sources are positive that the Galaxy Note 8 will be the first-ever Samsung device to arrive with a full pressure-sensitive display feature.
