Information was often contradictory and inflammatory, but now the floodgates have opened and no less than three sources have revealed images which show Samsung's latest flagship smartphone is a stunner...

Samsung has extended its budget J series in India with the launch of a new handset - Galaxy J2 Ace. In India, the phone is expected to cost a little higher than the company's Galaxy A9 Pro that retails for Rs 32,490.

The Galaxy J2 Ace flaunts the conventional Samsung aesthetics with a home physical key, multitasking+back capacitive buttons on the front and sports a 5-inch qHD panel. The reason some believe this phone may not be the Galaxy S8 is due to another leak via a Tweet from @Slashleaks that depicts a slightly different but more familiar design. Not only are there reports that Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 may abandon the feature but this week HTC announced the HTC Ultra, its new flagship with an all-new design, removing the headphone jack for good.

Europe and Japan are getting a Glacier White PS4 Slim
This is the first time the Dualshock 4 (PS4's main controller) will come in white, as well - at least straight from Sony, it will. Sony has yet to offer any additional details regarding pricing and availability for the Glacier White PlayStation 4 Slim.

The company's screen-manufacturing arm, Samsung Display, has published two short advertisements showing off the capabilities of its displays. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will allegedly not debut at MW and will instead be launched sometime in mid-April. In addition, the phone will nearly certainly be powered by Qualcomm's finest yet, a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6 GB of RAM, top-notch optics and a lot more.

Galaxy J1 is backed by a 2050 mAh battery, whereas Galaxy J2 is backed with a more powerful 2600 mAh battery. The beautifully designed smartphone has 16 MP back and front camera which is the most promising feature of Galaxy C7 Pro. The handset appears to come with a big screen that curves on both sides. The 2017 models of the Galaxy A line was also unveiled in Malaysia last week after being leaked early.

No visible fingerprint sensor - Rumor has it Samsung will somehow integrate the fingerprint sensor functionality in the screen, allowing for a much cleaner design.
