New photos have emerged that allege to show a working Samsung Galaxy S8, seemingly confirming months of rumours and speculations in regards to an almost bezel-free design. While the images don't give away too much else, they appear to confirm that the S8 will have a headphone jack, won't have a fingerprint reader or any physical buttons, and will charge via USB Type-C.

A further image shows what's said to be the 5.8-inch S8 next to an alleged 6.2-inch S8 Plus. Despite the larger displays, the S8 and S8 Plus should be similar in size to the S7 and S7 Edge, respectively.

Samsung's newly launched Secure Folder app for the Galaxy S7 includes an image of a phone that looks pretty similar to what we're expecting the S8 to look like.

Samsung is likely to further the tease the Galaxy S8 during its Mobile World Congress keynote in Barcelona (where it is set to unveil the Galaxy Tab S3), but an official announcement isn't expected until late March or early April.
