Big, clear, and shiny: these renders give us the best view yet of what the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will allegedly look like
We've seen alleged schematics, we've spotted pictures of cases for the yet unannounced phone. Now, we get maybe the clearest look at what the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will look like.
Allegedly based on factory CAD (computer-aided design) leaks, the render you see below is the result of a partnership between serial leakster (with a pretty good track record) @OnLeaks and @GearIndia. It shows us both of the upcoming S8 devices from all sides, and they look glorious.
Note 7 only in a curved variant (and leaks showed us that there was a flat-screened Note 7 in production, which was canceled at some point).
On to the looks of the devices, we've got a very signature Samsung look — the metal frame and the shiny front and back surfaces are very similar to what we've been seeing since the Galaxy S6 first appeared on stage. The front panels on both S8 phones look extremely impressive, with almost no side bezels and extremely minimal top and bottom ones. The weird, off-center fingerprint sensor placement on the back gets reiterated and, again, we are not sure what to think of this just yet. It does look like it would be uncomfortable and would cause us to smudge the camera more often than usual, as we touch around the fingerprint scanner for each unlock.
Earlier rumors of stereo speakers are challenged by what we see here, as the render clearly depicts just one speaker grille, on the bottom of the device. Of course, Sammy could pull an HTC 10 BoomSound Hi-Fi or iPhone 7-like solution, and have the phone's earpiece double as one of the stereo loudspeakers.
Another interesting tidbit that grabbed our attention — the selfie camera on the S8 Plus has a noticeably larger opening for the lens. Could this mean that the S8 Plus will have a larger sensor up front? Or a bigger aperture? We did get rumors that the S8 will have an auto-focusing selfie camera, but if these renders here are correct, the S8 Plus might get some extra features on top of that.
