Alleged Galaxy S8 edge design gets tipped by a case maker render
by Daniel Petrov / Jan 13, 2017, 6:02 AM
Galaxy S8 edge should look like. The British accessory shop MobileFun often tips on upcoming phone designs based on the renders they receive from case makers on actual products to put in their database, and a lot of the time the images have turned out pretty similar to what actually gets announced later on.
Galaxy S8 ends up looking like. What we see is a very narrow bottom bezel, thanks to the disappearance of the physical home key, and LED flash/pulse meter combo placed way above the camera on the back. In addition, the render depicts a curved Dual Edge display (duh).Case makers like Olixar are often combining rumors, leaked schematics, and general guesswork to design their wares before the phone hits the shelves, but they sometimes also do have real scoops on the exact dimensions, so that might be how the
The wallpaper is also pretty intriguing, as it shows a stylized number 8, similar to the blue 7 that is shown in official renders of the S7 and S7 edge phones, so that's not improbable, too. Take these case maker tips with a grain of salt, as sometimes they are simply ways to attract attention to the brand, but in other instances their renders have been based on some legit research, so the Galaxy S8 edge may very well end up looking similar to this graphical work.

Let me be the first to say that this phone doesn't look good at all to me. Hopefully it'll look better in person.

Eww, I don't want ugly on-screen buttons that don't actually save space, but just eat into screen real estate. Hopefully Samsung implements it better than the competitive alternatives have been up until this point.

If they reduce the top and bottom bezel by removing the home button you get a bigger screen in the same footprint. It means you will have the same size screen as the s7 despite having on-screen uttons.....BUT.... you get a bigger screen for viewing pics, watching videos and surfing the net etc

Capacitive buttons, home buttons, physical fingerprint scanners will soon be a thing of the past. Much like how early android has moved past those unnecessary menu and search buttons, remember those. It's all part of futuristic designing and more seamless all screen interaction.

Nothing surprising, just applying the Edge design in a button-free, minimum-bezel format. That's one beautiful bar of soap.

SHUT DA F UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! Best design ever made! At least in recent yearsHere, i said it. I'm actually not a fan of the edges because it may trigger unwanted presses but i could eat that just for how the phone looks and i guess samsung is finding ways for the sides not to trigger unwanted presses.

Well I thought the front will be made all of glass with a fingerprint under the glass

The front will be all glass, just not all screen, which is a ridiculous idea anyhow since there would be nothing to grip. Same goes for the rumored "bezel-less" iPhone 8. It's marketing speak for "very little bezel."

They can tip just the back and sides of the phone cause case does reveal just these ... Front is still just imagination. This front render is the same as the very first one posted one or 2 weeks ago here.
