This Galaxy S8 concept image strives to be bold, beautiful and convincing

This Galaxy S8 concept image strives to be bold, beautiful and convincing
Buoyed by the alleged glass protectors for the eventual front of the Galaxy S8 that leaked not long ago, and armed with knowledge from multiple leak sources, graphics designer Lee Kingway got to work recently, and came up with what may be the most convincing artist render of how the S8 might turn out so far. We have the expected extra slim top and bottom bezels, the rumored iris scanning duo, and the lack of physical home key all dolled up in blue, white and black, nestled around a curved AMOLED display that covers the vast majority of the phone's front.

Looking around the sides, we find the alleged dedicated button for launching Samsung's new virtual assistant Bixby on the left, USB-C port at the bottom, and an honest to goodness 3.5mm audio jack, too. Given that the camera is expected to stay largely unchanged from the already pretty good S7 shooter, contrary to the previous rumors of a dual-cam setup, it's not hard to believe the shape and placement of the lens, LED flash, and heart rate monitor as well. 

The only eyebrow-raiser here is the elliptical area next to the camera lens on the back, supposedly of a finger scanner, which the artist probably did as an insurance provided that the speculation about incorporating it in the bottom display part proves too much of a wishful thinking. In any case, there are two months between now and the rumored Galaxy S8 unveiling, so we hope that the real thing leaks out in official renders at some point, in order to compare it with this artist depiction below.

we might just have seen the Galaxy S8 folks! let's forget that this is a render, this will be what the Galaxy S8 looks like and if this is what it looks like, then, it's good bye the rest of android.

S8 will have flash above the camera, not on the side.

And you know this by? cause AFAIK everything is still speculation and rumors at this point. The Galaxy S8 could very well come with a dish washer for all we care.

Case design leaks can be considered reliable since they get the CAD renders of the dimentions and all the holes they need to make. We don't know the design of the phone, but we can rely on where the camera, flash, buttons and the port will be based on them.

I dont really expect to see this small bezels. If they make it this small it will be a big thing. But ill be surprised if they do.

Very nice renders. That shows how important is your wallpaper and colour of your phone. Now Samsung has to perfect palm rejection and they got winner.

These concepts look awesome. I'm still torn on the fingerprint scanner allegedly moving to the back. I'm at a desk all day so unlocking my phone from the front is definitely preferred.

Because most people doesn't care much about iris scanner and said it's a gimmicky, that's why.

You could get a cell phone holder the sits your phone upright on your desk and utilize the iris scanner. I did that with the note 7 and it worked just fine. It amazed me everytime how fast it was at recognizing my eyes...

Who says the fingerprint reader is on the back? The rumors said it will be underneath the glass? Did you not read that in earlier articles, that Samsung is working on a under glass finger sensor?

This was the latest rumor saying it would be on the back, but then the case renderings that have come out conflict with it. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-Galaxy-S8-to-feature-bezel-less-design-infinity-display-iris-scanner-more_id90337 At this point, it seems like the fingerprint scanner location is the most unknown thing about this phone.

And you're still a hopeless case. If you don't like Samsung phones, why are you even in a Samsung article to begin with?
