Video: Galaxy S8 Cases Get Compared To Galaxy S7 Handsets

Two new alleged Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus cases just surfaced. This new leak comes from Mobile Fun UK, and the source actually recorded a video with these two cases in order to try and get out more info out of them. Now, the video that is embedded down below reveals how large will the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus be, plus it shows us various ports that are expected to be included on those two devices. Before we begin, do keep in mind that this is still leaked info, the source cannot confirm these two cases belong to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, but they do seem quite confident that the info is legit.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 actually fits really nicely in the Galaxy S8’s alleged case, which suggests that the Galaxy S8 will be just as big, at least in terms of hardware dimensions. Based on this info, the Galaxy S8 will either sport a 5.1-inch display, or perhaps a 5.2-inch panel, but with thinner bezels all around, which is quite possible. The Galaxy S7 Edge, on the other hand, is not really a good fit for the Galaxy S8 Plus case. The phone fits well as far as its height goes, it’s a tight fit, but it can be placed inside of the case, but there’s a rather big gap on the sides. This could mean that Samsung plans to include a different aspect ratio on the Galaxy S8 Plus, or perhaps that the device’s bezels on the top and bottom will be extremely thin, and its display will be larger than the one on the Galaxy S7 Edge, which is possible. So, we could be looking at a 5.7-inch display here, especially considering that the Galaxy Note 7 also fits in this case, though there’s still some gap on the sides, and the Galaxy Note 7 features a 5.7-inch display.

Moving on, both of these cases feature what seem to be S Pen cutouts on the bottom, as a recent leak suggested. Along with the S Pen cutouts, you’ll also notice what seems to be a USB cutout down there. Well, that might not be a USB charging port, as the cutout is too small, so is it possible that both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus might ship without a charging port? Is Samsung going full wireless this time around? Anything is possible at this point, though it's also possible that Samsung plans to include some other wired method or charging, or perhaps ship these phones with Type-C USB chargers but make their casing smaller. The microphone cutout is also placed on the very bottom of both of these cases, and you’ll notice that there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack here. The rear-facing camera port is also quite visible here, and above it, you’ll notice yet another cutout which is probably there for the LED flash, and the heart rate sensor.
