Unofficial Galaxy S8 render hints at what the design might look like

For example, it confirmed that the physical home button is being ditched and the fingerprint scanner is being moved to the back. It also confirmed that the handset will have an amazing display-to-body ratio.Since that leaked picture was a bit blurry, this unofficial render of the Galaxy S8 is going to give you a better idea of what the Galaxy S8 might look like.

What do you think about how the Galaxy S8 is shaping up to be so far?Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S8 on March 29 and release it…

Samsung heir Lee might face arrest once again

Samsung Electronics vice chairman and heir apparent Lee Jae-yong dodged arrested two weeks ago when the Seoul Central District Court rejected an arrest warrant request put forward by the special prosecutor’s office that’s looking into allegations of embezzlement and bribery against Samsung in connection with South Korea’s influence-peddling scandal.

The team is reportedly considering to try and get an arrest warrant for the Samsung heir once it’s done with the face-to-face investigation of the president by early next month.The court denied the first warrant request because it didn’t consider Lee to be a f…
