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.

It's a render. It was not claimed to be real.

True but I feel like since the one S8 case has been released, people are just making new renders of the phone and new case renderings based off that. It's like playing telephone...the more it's copied, the more distorted and untrue it gets. Up to this point, Samsung has definitely succeeded in keeping this phone from being fully leaked. It kind of builds the excitement and suspense up. :D

"It kind of builds the excitement and suspense up." Yes... It builds hype, to be more specific.

Agree, that is fake.

If that is truly the S8 model, my next phone has been born. My only concern is, how the hell do you hold that thing?

It is missing the noise cancelling microphone. I'm sure all of these leaks are fairly close, but we won't know exactly what the final look will be. I hope they bring back the IR blaster.

Man, okay. A couple of things. If this is indeed an accurate render, which is highly unlikely, then this will probably be Samsung's finest phone yet. JUST LOOK AT THE DAMN THING. ITS FREAKING BEAUTIFUL! ON SCREEN FINGERPRINT SCANNER! 3.5MM JACK! THE FRONT IS ALL SCREEN SON! AND WTF IS THAT!?!?!? TOP AND BOTTOM SPEAKERS!??!? CHANGING THE GAME! Okay, with that said and done. The curves do look pretty iPhone-ish. But im sure thats what Samsung was going for, since you know, iPhones sell like hotcakes.

Humm... Two different leaks have surfaced... one with the flash above the camera and one with the flash next to the camera where its been for the last three iterations... Could we be seeing the makings of a S8 plus with the flash above the camera???

Its fake. But if true, this curve edge is actually starting to become stale tbh.. I'd rather have a more interesting design approach like what the G6 is proposed to have or samsung employ the edges like the original note edge series (not in looks but functionality or act like a second screen ala lg V10 or the Touch bar in the macbook). But maybe I should wait till the actual product launches.

I wish an iphone would have bezels like that.

Looks like a decent device. Power & volume buttons on one side, that will take some getting used to. Stereo speakers would be an added bonus, but not necessary (at lest not for me). I'm just not a fan of the "edge sides" and prefer the "flat" screen with a little bit of bezel. The curves do look more "rounded" like the iPhone 7, but then again almost all devices are going for that look because that's what Apple is doing.

This thing better have flawless palm rejection or it's going to be a nightmare to use. It is beautiful although I still can't stand edge screens.

Am so excited to lay my hand on S8 soon, dunno if it's real or fake but one thing is certain 4 me, if the s8 disappoint by not making a design change, retain even a bigger battery (Camera & Sleekness is a norm for Samsung, thanks for that!) am out, i refused to pick S7 because of the ressemblance with my S6, other than waterproof, better bar3 and lil improved Cam, nothing fancy on S7.. Best device in the world tho.. Big bar3, S7 like Camera,sleek & beauriful look always does it for me...

I believe these renders will resemble the S8's actual look. Samsung wanted to show that they were first at embedding the fingerprint scanner within the screen. However, that won't make a difference in their sales as Apple had intentions of doing this with their new 2017 model. Samsung knew that Apple was going to release a phone with these capabilities. It will be interesting on who gets to true wireless charging of being less than 15 ft away from the charger transmitter.
