If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll get to see a third-party Galaxy S8 render. Now, this image was created based on the leaked info, mainly the Galaxy S8 case which leaked a couple of days ago. In addition to that, the source of this image took other rumors into consideration before he created this design. This image was created by SamMobile’s reader called Chris, let’s take a closer look at it, shall we.
As you can see, this smartphone has no physical home button below the display, and that actually fits with a number of rumors we’ve seen in the last couple of months. It seems like Samsung really plans to ditch their physical home key this time around, and if that happens, then the Galaxy S8 (and possibly Galaxy S8 Plus) will be the first Galaxy S-branded smartphone to ship without such a button. Samsung’s logo is placed below the display on this smartphone, and as you can see, the LED flash is located above the phone’s rear-facing camera. Next to the LED flash, you’ll notice what seems to be a heartrate sensor, which is something we’ve seen on Samsung’s previous Galaxy S smartphones. The power / lock key is placed on the right-hand side of this handset, while the volume rocker buttons can be found on the left. You’ll also notice that this phone features a curved display on both its left and right sides, and if rumors are accurate, Samsung might even skip the flat screen Galaxy S model this year, which would be somewhat surprising, as there are quite a few people out there who want to purchase such a phone, and are not fans of curved displays.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is rumored to ship with a 5.5-inch display, while its larger sibling, the Galaxy S8 Plus, could come with a 5.7-inch panel. The regular Galaxy S8 model will, allegedly, come with a single camera on the back, while the Galaxy S8 Plus variant could sport two camera sensors on the back. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 and Samsung’s Exynos 8895 SoCs are expected to come to play, as the company is probably going to use both of these SoCs, though not at the same time, of course, their availability will depend on where you live, some units will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835, others by the Exynos 8895. Do keep in mind that the provided image is only a concept image by a tech enthusiast, not an actual leak of the device.
