As we edge closer to an unveiling of the Galaxy S8 late next month, yet another set of leaked images have surfaced for Samsung's forthcoming flagship via Ice universe on Twitter. This latest leak gives us a good look at the design of the phone, and in particular the removal of a physical home button.  

Such a design change points to the Galaxy S8 featuring virtual function keys, as opposed to physical ones, a feature that has been rumoured to be on the new Apple iPhone. As such, if this leak is to be believed, Samsung would have beaten their rival to the punch.

Added to the lack of home button, there seems to be a rather slim bezel too, one that appears even smaller than that featured on the Galaxy S7 edge. Speaking of which, there has been no sightings of an S8 edge, so could the South Korean manufacturer be doing away with the product?  

This won't be the last time images leak of the Galaxy S8, with better looks at it expected in the future.
