Samsung will be unveiling Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ later this month. With just a handful of days left, the rumor mills are getting hotter with everyday something new popping up. Today renders for Galaxy S8 have surfaced online by the case maker Speigen. This isn’t the first time that Galaxy S8 has leaked online, if you haven’t been following the story there is a lot to catch up on. To date we have seen different renders, live images and even some videos which show the Galaxy S8 in all its glory.
Case makers get a briefing on the design of the device from the company and then make cases based on that. So, we cannot comment on the authenticity of the renders as the company has filled in the gaps left by the manufacturer. The renders show Galaxy S8 in a black flexible case. This looks very similar to the case that Rugged Armor Case that the company revealed for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
Looking closely at the renders,we can see that the key design details like no home button, increased screen-to-body ratio that leads to a bezel-less ‘Infinity Display‘. All these can be seen in the renders. One of the key details that is different is that on the bottom bezel the Samsung logo is present. In the earlier leaks we haven’t seen this detail. Most probably the Samsung branding will be present at the back, not at the front as seen here.
Looking at the specs of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the devices will be powered by a powerful Snapdragon 835 and the Exynos 8895 chipset, paired with a 4GB RAM and a 64 GB native storage that can be extended. The device will have a 12MP dual pixel camera and an 8MP front facing camera whose features will be optimized through the software. The fingerprint scanner will be found at the rear of then device and as of yesterday a report suggested that facial recognition will be introduced. Samsung will also be introducing their own voice based AI assistant, Bixby which will have its own dedicated button.
Samsung will be announcing Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ on 29th March and the devices are set for a global launch on April 28th. So, let’s see where is the branding placed and what other features are there.
