Designer beautifully mocks up the Galaxy S8 based on leaked info
As one might expect at around this time of year, rumors pertaining to The Next Galaxy from Samsung have been rife. What we've heard so far of the so-called Galaxy S8 has been promising; from the fingerprint scanner integrated into the display to improvements on the already-great cameras of the S7 and S7 edge. Another recurring theme is that of a higher display-to-body ratio, with markedly less bezel than previous editions. Based on recent tidbits, designer Veniamin Geskin has mocked up a 'live' image of the Galaxy S8.

Where concepts renders can often depict dream-like designs that almost certainly won't materialize, Geskin has molded the current batch of information into a very Samsung-esque finish. The image above is one that Geskin recently shared on Twitter, and has since been joined by a new impression of how the flagship may look in the flesh. 

With the Galaxy Note 7's design having been well received until its rather unfortunate conclusion, it's not beyond possibility that the S8 could be a solely curved-edge affair. If the Korean firm does plan to retain the blueprint of this year's models, though, then Geskin's renders offer an idea of how a Galaxy S8 edge might look.

Aside from the customary processor, camera and general performance bump, it's possible that Samsung could omit the 3.5mm audio jack from the S8 series. This would be in alignment with similar moves from the likes of Apple and Motorola, though many Phone Arena readers would prefer if Sammy didn't nix this long-standing feature. 

Should Samsung be planning a more full-screened experience, these concepts offer a very plausible guideline as to what could be in the offing (though apparently sans the touted fingerprint-in-display aspect). The million-dollar question is, though, could you see yourself handing over your money for a chance to own it?

where do u see the back? Anyways...we already see where its headed...why don't we just take 2 pieces of glass and shows a display in between and place no bezels or metal of any kind anywhere. Just all glass that I can see through with a display in between. Because that is almost all it is right now.

How can you tell this phone does not have stereo speakers? All you can see if the front of it..

Well, only that it would put on its side as A series where the right speakers. Which is nonsense, and the quality will be nothing because of the size.

"Eliminate the logo from the front and give us stereo speakers." maherk, you know that a smartphone needs a display digitizer, right? And it is situated at the top of Samsung phones, so Samsung just puts it's logo there just for branding sake. Removing the Samsung logo from the top won't leave room for stereo speakers, unless Samsung increases the top bezel.

They can use the top speaker as a loud speaker, just like Huawei, iPhone 7, HTC, and many more have been doing.

"They can use the top speaker as a loud speaker" Okay... but using the top speaker as a loud speaker doesn't necessarily warrant the removal of the Samsung logo... no?

"Its gonna be on the back...like the iPhone" All Samsung phones already have it's logo on the back... Heck, I fail to see how necessary is removing the logo from the top. Am I misunderstanding something?

If it looks like the top render, S8 will be a futuristic device.

Why not whole front covered with display?

The edge screen already to me is perfect the way is is. I don't think I want an edgeless device. That to me in that photo is ugly. I saw another render that I thought looked better, but after barely dropping my Note 7 and cracking the side of it so easy, because theer is no protection for the glass, a full edgeless model would such even more. I mean, whatever case they make for it, is only going to cover the back. That means in order to protect the front, we will be forced to buy full 9H glass covers which for a good one that will actually stick, will be $20 or more. Not a lot of money, but they break too. Its a bad idea and its only going to make insurance companies who cover phones more rich. And Samsung will get more rich off making the extra spare parts its going to need. This is a bad idea, I don't care if it ends up looking good. I love the look of the S7 and Note 7 Edge and I still think the design was/is a bad idea; even though I like it. I think this is a bad move and makes the phone even less durable. Gorilla Glass is still Glass and harder to break is not equal to impossible to break. Unless they are going back to plastic glass, this is a shatter-magnet.

If Samsung stays on glass back design and Apple follows I will start looking at midrange phones with premium build quality. The Note 4 was fine with metal sides and they can still do water resistance.

Frankly, I think the S7 Edge looks better than this plain glass concept...
