The Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks just keep on rolling out thanks to third-party case makers. New 3D renders provide the best look at the new design and features of the upcoming flagship smartphone.
Case Makers Leak Galaxy S8 Design
Samsung has been doing its best at attempting to keep the final design of its upcoming Galaxy S8 series under lock and key. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for third-party case makers who have published images of the supposed handset in a protective case. Although the Galaxy S8 is pictured inside a case, many of its features have been confirmed. Another accessory maker's Galaxy S8 leaked online and cutouts show the smartphone will retain its 3.5mm headphone port and gain a USB Type-C port.
Now, a third-party case maker has supplied GSM Arena with 3D renders of the Samsung Galaxy S8 based off of accurate schematics of the smartphone. The images give us our best look at what the unannounced smartphone will reportedly look like.
3D Renders Provide Best Look At Samsung Galaxy S8
As you can see in the photo above, Samsung is using a new dual-curved edge display, which appears more pronounced with side bezels out of sight and the rumored "all screen-front" is as its name implies. Hardware navigation keys and home button/fingerprint scanner are nowhere in sight, further appearing to confirm the smartphone will feature on-screen "3D Touch-like" buttons and a fingerprint scanner that will be embedded directly into the curved Super AMOLED display.
Another image shows there are speaker grills located above and below the display and are said to be stereo speakers, very likely high-end Harman stereo speakers. The standard 3.5mm headphone port is also intact, as is what is supposedly the USB Type-C port, which made its debut on the now recalled Galaxy Note 7.
The third image shows the rear of the Galaxy S8 and its camera setup. The camera in the photo backs up the previously leaked third-party case maker's images, showing the smartphone will use a single rear camera and not the reported dual camera feature found on its main rival, iPhone 7 Plus.
Samsung may show off the Galaxy S8 and S8 edge/Plus at Mobile World Congress 2017, according to a recent report, although the company is widely expected to hold its own event in March or April in NYC to officially launch the new flagship smartphones.
The company expects its new handsets to be popular at launch and is reportedly building 10 million units of the Galaxy S8 series for its April release. Reports have suggested the smartphones will be released to the public in the third week of April, and since it typically schedules Fridays for its release dates, April 21 could be the exact day.
We'll keep you posted on any additional Samsung Galaxy S8 details as they become available.
