This Samsung Galaxy S8 edge concept is as stunning as they come

While the new S7 edge is an undeniable improvement on last year's model, Steel Drake's concept does not subscribe to the notion that incremental changes are the order of the day. It retains the edge-to-edge display that has become a trademark of Sammy's more curvaceous flagship, but rethinks the shape for a more pronounced, less rounded curve.
Elsewhere, the concept imagines a futuristic Charge Translator system that refuels the device over-the-air. It's like traditional wireless charging on heat, and while it's perhaps not beyond the realms of eventual possibility, we're not holding our collective breath for seeing this sort of tech any time soon.
All told, this is a very intriguing venture into the unknown. As the months go on, we'll surely have a stronger idea of what Samsung is actually plotting for next year's round of flagship smartphones. In the meantime, though, we're more than happy to drool over these.
Do you think this design would mark an improvement on the current S7 edge? Check out the gallery of images below, and be sure to have your say in the comments.

Aside from the edges, it's beautiful. A screen that bends away from you is not good. It looks great, but text and images warp over the side. I had the S7e for two months and it drove me crazy. I just hope they make a 5.5" flat S8.

The edge design makes the phone really unattractive. The back design is even worse. Not a good looking phone at all. But good thing is it's still a concept.
