Another Galaxy S8 case render leaks, with a 3.5mm headphone jack intact

While the Galaxy S8 has been rumored to lack a 3.5mm headphone jack, the case we're looking at clearly shows one. Also present are three control buttons on the left side of the case, presumably handling Volume Up, Volume Down, and Power/Standby. This tidbit matches the case render we saw from Ghostek yesterday.
The camera cutout on the back suggests a single camera rather than a dual-cam setup (which has been rumored as a possibility), and we also spot what could turn out to be a microSD card slot on the top. The bottom part has an opening for an USB Type C port, placed far right, while the speaker cutout (or what looks like it could be one) is placed on the left – a change from the 2016 Galaxy S models that had their bottom speakers placed right.
The Galaxy S8 is scheduled to enter mass-production in March for a mid-April release. Reports have hinted at Samsung manufacturing a very small batch for showcasing the smartphone to partners and media in February. It's possible that more elaborate leaks will surface in the weeks leading to the phone's announcement. Rumors point towards Samsung presenting the Galaxy S8 either at this year's MWC conference (end of February), or at a dedicated event in April.

I'm guessing this also means the rumors of a dual camera are also not going to come to fruition?

Confused by the placement of the flash. Doesn't make sense especially because of the hear rate monitor. Maybe the removed it?

That hole isn't all that big, it could even be for the bottom mic. Also - really hope those are stereo speakers on the left side on the top and bottom.

Looks to me like the top port is the USB-C charging port and the bottom ports are, from left to right: speaker, microphone, and..a stylus! Unfortunately this would mean no headphone jack, which would be stupid, hypocritical, and more reason to get the G6.
