The folks over at GSMArena have accessed 3D renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 from a case manufacturer, designed based on accurate schematics. The renders show off the handset’s bezel-less front with a dual-curved display and very thin bezels on the top as well as the bottom.
Another significant change on the front seems to be the lack of a physical home button. There is no fingerprint scanner visible at the back, so it does look like the Galaxy S8 will feature an optical fingerprint scanner after all. We can also see that the handset features a speaker grille both on the top bezel as well as the bottom, which hints at the presence of a stereo speaker setup. The bottom of the handset is shown to feature a USB port (Type-C ?) and a 3.5mm headphone jack as well, which suggests Samsung may keep the 3.5mm jack intact. Of course, we have to keep in mind that the device shown in these renders could be one of the many Galaxy S8 prototypes that Samsung is currently testing.
At the back, the handset features a single camera setup, with a familiar layout. Some rumors have claimed the Galaxy S8 will come with a dual-camera setup at the back, but if these renders are indeed the real deal, that may not be the case.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be unveiled on April 18th at a dedicated event in New York City. As we head closer to the rumored announcement date, we should see more renders and perhaps live images show up online.
