Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S8 is one of the highly anticipated devices of this year. After the exploding Note 7 disaster, the Korean tech giant is out to prove a point that they are still in the game. Samsung this time around faces fierce competition not only from Apple but Google as well,as Google Pixel and Pixel XL were hailed as one of the best Android smartphones for 2016. A lot of other companies like LG, HTC, Huawei and Xiaomi are taking advantage of Samsung’s lapse to increase sales and their market shares.
Samsung will ensure that Galaxy S8 not only has impeccable specs but a great design language as well. This aspect seems to be confirmed by one of the renders by Ghostek. The shared image shows the Galaxy S8 inside the Ghostek’s Atomic 3 Waterproof Case. Information about the device is shared with the accessory makers so that cases for the device are ready when it ships in the market.
Earlier claims about the Galaxy S8 suggested that Samsung will ditch the home button and increase the screen-to-body ratio making the device display truly edge-to-edge. This aspect is confirmed by the Ghostek render in which we can see that there is no home button and the name from the top has moved to the bottom. With this development, the fingerprint scanner will either move to the rear of the device or most probably they have embedded it in the display screen. The rumors have been rampant about the developments but we cannot surely say what will end up being finalized. Along with that the volume and the power/standby buttons have also been placed on the left side. This hints to another design change. If this render is true then it means that Samsung is truly working on their goals to produce an impeccable device with an excellent design.
With the rumor mills heating up we will be hearing more updates about the Galaxy S8. More renders and leaks will be popping up in the coming days. Samsung is expected to unveil Galaxy S8 at the MWC 2017 and the global release date has been confirmed for the middle of April.
