New leaked Galaxy S8 cases hint at a familiar design

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.

It looks UGLY with those big top/bottom chins. I hope they don’t make it look like the pixel phones…The earlier leaked design was perfect….Pls don’t look like this!!!

David Ruddock from Android police tweeted a couple of days ago that it seems Samsung have decided to stick with the 3.5 Mm jack.

This may just be me wishful thinking but the headphone jack cut out looks very big so I’m thinking maybe just maybe it’s for s-pen

sammobile are one of the original sources that started echo chambering the idea that Samsung would remove the audio jack out of no where. There was zero indication that they would ever do that.

Well we told before that we have different sources, with different prototypes.

So one source told us that his unit didn’t have the audio jack.

Maybe we jumped the gun to early…

Yes keep us busy guessing. Lol. It’s funny that people don’t understand what an NDA is and how media leaks rule the tech blog industry. You guys already know more about what’s coming but blatantly lie for the sake of the scoop or exclusive.

I don’t mind though. It’s worth being able to come to one source for my Samsung news. And you guys make it look good too,. PLUS your firmware and apk sections are life savers.

So if you must lie to keep the site going, I’m all for it.

Oh, and people. Martin R is EXTREMELY good looking.

I think we are still too early for official case designs to be unveiled. At best, Samsung unveils the S8 at MWC at the end of February, but it will more than likely be March or April, so we are too far out to have a final decision on the S8 design for case makers to have their final design.

Strangely nobody have noticed that the bigger opening at the buttom right can only be for a S-Pen. The headphone jack in middle and an USB Type-C at the buttom left.
On top there are ports for SIM and memory card.
This is second time I’ve seen similar leaked images of covers for the coming Galaxy S8+ which will sport a display sized 6.0-6.2″.
Now I believe that an on board S-Pen is for sure :)))
Good bye to looking forward for the Galaxy Note 8

It’s the speaker

Doubt it’s for the spen, looking at it is that we have stero speakers to the left bottom and top and the wide port on the right is the charging port.

Bit weird design having the charging off center so I would take these pics with big pinch of salt

You think they’ll finally have a red colour option?! Also, people keep comparing screen size and body ratio to the S7s. Any idea what the rumours compare to the S6 edge+, surely its dimensions at least will be closer to that flagship. The S6 edge+ is 6.2 inches from corner to corner, with a 5.7inch display.
