Evan Blass, tech reporter, has built a reputation for accurately leaking images of some of the world’s biggest smartphones on Twitter previously. 

Blass tweeted an image of the device along with the caption: “I think this is what you've been waiting for.”

The allegedly image shows the company’s latest flagship device with an almost bezel-less display. 

Rumoured specs of the company’s next flagship device includes a 5.1 inch display, 12 megapixel camera and the Snapdragon 830 chipset with 6GB of RAM and a 4K display.

Samsung avoided launching the S8 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week as it is still recovering from the exploding Note 7 saga. 

Last year, the electronics manufacturer unveiled its S7 and S7 Plus devices during the 2016 MWC.
