With just a few months to the launch of Samsung’s new flagship phone, rumor-mill is high on how the phone will look like. A leaked version of Samsung’s Secure Folder app for the Galaxy S7 has been making its way around the internet today. The app offers fingerprint security for a specific folder of apps and contacts, but it seems the same app might have also confirmed the design for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8, as spotted by SamMobile.

The leaked image seems to confirm the various rumors about the S8, albeit in the broadest way possible — we expect to see a phone with small bezels, no buttons on the front with a curved display. This is the first time we are seeing any official images from Samsung even if we have seen several hardware leaks of the alleged device already online.

The app would also seem to indicate that Samsung is planning to bring the Secure Folder feature — previously exclusive to the now defunct Galaxy Note 7 — to the S8, in addition to the S7. The Galaxy S8 is expected to be released toward the end of March, when we’ll presumably find out more on the design and software of Samsung’s next flagship.
