Alleged Galaxy S8 vs Note 7 vs S7 CAD schematics claim tiny camera hump on a thicker handset

Alleged Galaxy S8 vs Note 7 vs S7 CAD schematics claim tiny camera hump on a thicker handset
The leakster account that keeps on giving today just posted another juicy morsel about the eventual Galaxy S8 - more precisely, about its alleged camera hump, or lack thereof, and its thickness compared to the Note 7 and Galaxy S7. While we already heard a tip that the S8 won't be sporting a camera hump in the grand tradition of the S6 and S7, these leaked schematics put the situation in numbers.

The Galaxy S7 has a 1mm tall camera hump on the back (from 1.7mm for the S6), and that shrank slightly to 0.8mm in the Note 7. With the Galaxy S8, however, the source claims that we will only have a 0.2mm bump, which is essentially a small, almost flat rim around the camera lens. The handset itself, however, has gained a fraction of a millimeter in height compared to both the Note 7 and the S7, for the whopping 8mm thickness, the horror. 

We'll see if these rumors pan out in the end, but the third schematic that compares CAD drawings of the S8 with the Note 7 and S7 shows a top section with cameras and sensors that coincide with what's been rumored so far about the Galaxy S8, like an iris scanner, for instance, or a very slim bezel that would contribute to the rumored 83% screen-to-body ratio of the S8.

Here is a crazy design idea, how about putting a small 2nd screen on the back of the phone just for framing your selfies and having just one camera on the phone? Gets rid for the need of having a front facing camera all together, giving more room for the screen and it also will have the advantage of having the best camera, with auto focus and flash.

Good question, I never thought of that DOH, ok make the 2nd screen bigger but don't need to be 2K, maybe 5inch 1080p

There is a phone that has uses one camera that allows you to physically rotate the camera. Though I guess it was not marketed very well as I believe it was a Chinese made phone, which even still are not sold like Samsung, Motorola, and LG phones through carriers.

worse? what You won't even notice the thickness, let's be real. Same battery as the s8 WAT? are you talking about the note 7? if so Do you honestly think samsung will let that happen again? it would literally kill their phone business. screen sizes mean nothing right now because they are curved screens.

and a chip that draws 30% less power to do the same thing which will more than make up for the increased screen size. oh god, its 0.1mm thicker!!! the horror! how will we ever live with such a fat, disgusting failure of a phone!!

Where did you read the battery would be the same size? I know. NOWHERE! Why is it, every day when you raise your head off that cement block you sleep on, you have to come here and troll for absolutely no reason? Are you really that bored, that stupid and that hungry for attention?! Awwwww, did you mama and dada give you attention as a kid, so you come here for it? I mean, inquiring minds really wants to know what drives you guys constant stupidity every single day! You've heard no facts about this device whatsoever. In fact there was never a time a battery went smaller as the Samsung device got bigger. Even the Note 7 which is smaller than the Note 5 has a bigger battery. Gosh dude, you don't have to "act" stupid and ignorant every day. Unless maybe you can't help it and then maybe you should stay away from computers entirely, until a doctor clears you!

Doesn't matter if it has a camera bump that's 4 meters in height. It's only ever a problem when the iPhone has a camera bump.

4 meters? What math is that? SO quick to say something negative, you can't even say it right. But you try to correct others. It's millimeters = MM. Show me a phone with a 3+ foot camera bump. Moron!

Now Samsung got the right idea. I'd take a device that's thicker but keep that camera flat. I don't care if the extra thickness doesn't add any extra battery (even thought it can) just want that flush camera like iPhones before 6. Hope everyone follows this trend.
