Most of the time when we hear about any smartphone leaks, it’s mostly some low-quality shot of the phone or some listing on a website. This time around the leaks is of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3, which showcases some features of the Galaxy S8. The images from the Galaxy Tab leaks show pictures of the S8. It looks like some kind of walkthrough that the tablet displays when pairing with a Samsung Galaxy S8.
Also, the following photos of S8 support the new rumors:

One of the major things to notice from the leaks is the navigation buttons on the Galaxy S8. Samsung has stuck to its physical navigation buttons since the beginning of the series but this time around it seems to have been chopped off. What we instead see are three on-screen buttons, giving more room for the screen and a lesser bezel to screen ratio. Although they seemed to have switched to more standard on-screen Android navigation functions, they’ve tinkered the icons to a design of their own, and have maintained the order of the multi-tasking button, home button, and the back button like on current Samsung phones.
The next image confirms two details that we’ve already covered: the fingerprint sensor next to the camera, a heart-rate sensor sitting at the opposite side of it. With the lack of a physical home button, the fingerprint scanner at the back was expected, but it’s somewhat inconvenient as the placement makes it difficult to reach for people with small hands.
Then, we can also see a desktop-style dock for the Galaxy S8, namely DeX dock. It flips open vertically to accept your phone. From what we’ve heard, there’s an HDMI port on the back, which lets you connect your phone to a monitor and make use of your phone for a desktop environment.
