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.
