New leaked Galaxy S8 cases hint at a familiar design


Last updated: January 17th, 2017 at 15:05 UTC+02:00

We’ve seen a slew of purported Galaxy S8 cases being leaked online over the past week giving us what might be our first glimpse at the design of Samsung’s upcoming flagship. We’ve received a handful of images that show cases for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus from a different manufacturer. A couple of design elements are now being seen consistently in cases from three different manufacturers.

These cases appear to have the relevant cutouts for a USB Type-C port, a microphone and the standard 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom. This is interesting given that the Galaxy S8 is widely believed to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. All of these leaked cases have the rear flash placed above the camera so it just might be how Samsung is going to place these components this time around.

Make what you will of these leaked cases, it obviously goes without saying that they don’t necessarily confirm anything about the Galaxy S8’s design. Samsung is expected to officially unveil the Galaxy S8 in April.
