The big "potatocam" leak from yesterday clearly showed what we're assuming are the Galaxy S8 and the larger Galaxy S8+, complete with curved screens and virtual navigation buttons.

Sony's XZ Premium and the XZs are not the only new kids on the block for its 2017 smartphone lineup. The company has also got the 'super mid-range' XA1 and XA1 Ultra devices, for those searching for a good-looking phone on a budget.
