Supposed first image of Galaxy S8 leaks on the network and generates suspicion

There are three steps in the coverage of a smartphone not yet released: pre-release, release, post-release. The first of these is where we tell tech fans what to expect about a new device. This is one of the steps I like best, especially because it is full of expectations. However, sometimes there are very forced rumors, and this supposed image of the Galaxy S8 is one of them.

The Galaxy S8 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year for many reasons, and some people can take advantage of it. At the beginning of this month, @ VenyaGeskin1 published a concept of Samsung's new flagship based on rumors already leaked about the device. The concepts, by the way, were very well created and give a good idea of ​​what we can expect from the device:

After that, the image below came up on the site Slashleaks, which confirms that this is the first "supposed" image of the Galaxy S8 in gold:

It turns out that besides looking like a poorly edited image of the Galaxy S7 Edge, there is something very inconsistent about it. Have you found it?

Yes, there are rumors that the Galaxy S8 will take great advantage of the front of the device for the screen, and the image above even represents that very well, but by removing the physical button and capacitive buttons, how to access them ? Yeah, the system navigation bar is gone.

Below you can see a screenshot of the Galaxy S7, which has one physical button and two capacitors, so it doesn't show virtual buttons like the Xperia Z2 (right side screenshot).

Now, make the comparisons and tell me: is this image really from the Galaxy S8?
