Possible 3D renders of the Samsung Galaxy S8 emerge


Another day, another Samsung Galaxy S8 rumor. This time, the folks at GSMArena received what appear to be 3D renders of the Galaxy S8 by an anonymous case maker. These renders are a bit crude, but are reportedly based on accurate schematics of the device.

If we assume that these three images are accurate, however, they do reveal quite a lot about the handset. The physical Home key has all but vanished from the front of the S8. This could indicate that we may see a fingerprint scanner located under the glass, along with a virtual version of the Home button. As for the display itself, it clearly looks that Samsung has managed to squeeze the top and bottom bezels almost to non-existance, while further improving upon the S7 Edge design, with virtually no bezels present on the sides of the phone.

These renders also unveil that Samsung didn't go in iPhone 7/HTC U mode when making the S8, so the device will have a 3.5mm jack. A most welcome move is the introduction of stereo speakers (judging by the speaker grills at the top and bottom), but there is no dual-camera to be observed at the back of the phone. Though that won't stop us from hoping that the rumors about the premium version of the Galaxy S8 boasting a dual-camera will come true.

While the images do correspond with a lot of the gossip floating around these days, it is likely that we won't be 100% certain about what Samsung has in store for us with it's latest flagship, until the company releases the phone in the Spring.
