Samsung Galaxy S8 case renders showcase a fourth physical button, could be used for Bixby

A lot of Galaxy S8 renders and cases have been leaked till now, and it’s hard to say which ones are legit. However, all of them showcase a similar design with the screen capturing most of the front part of the device. Now, new case renders from MobileFun have surfaced, showcasing an important aspect of the Galaxy S8. If this case render turns out to be true, there could be a fourth physical button on the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus.

We’ve heard a lot about Samsung’s upcoming digital voice assistant Bixby, and the fourth button on the Galaxy S8 could be dedicated for triggering it. Moreover, there appears to be no opening on the case for a fingerprint sensor, so it is possible that Samsung has placed it under the front glass panel or under the display itself. Synaptics recently introduced a new fingerprint sensor that can be placed under the glass, and Samsung could be using it for the Galaxy S8.

Update: It has come to our attention that the cut-out for the camera on this case is exceptionally large. There’s a simple theory that explains the added space, though. It’s possible that the South Korean company may have opted to position the heart rate sensor and flash on one side of the camera, and the fingerprint reader on the other.

Let us know what you think about these case renders.

That’s the worst render I’ve ever seen… It’s fake for sure. Don’t expect to see the Galaxy S8 until 1 week before its official release.

below the camera yes , somewhere around the camera yes , but i’ve never seen a fingerprint scanner located next to the camera on any mobile !!

I’m gonna take a stab in the dark and say it’s for a dual camera on the S8 Plus variant… But who knows :S

No one thinks this could be for Tango depth sensing? It’s about the same size as the new ZenPhone AR’s camera area.

The S7 firmware update changes the reset procedure from Home button and power button, to volume down button and power button.

…as it already was with 6.0.
Home Button and Power Button do a Screenshot. Nothing has changed there.

If it’s legit, then a lack of stereo speakers is disappointing. The Galaxy S6 and S7 active both have a fourth physical button to launch specific apps. Maybe this is something similar?

At least the heart-rate sensor isn’t above the camera like other leaked renders… that would have been a very ugly design choice. This new render makes the rear of the device more symmetrical, which is good.

If the case is legit,then forget about the synaptics fingerprint because it will definitely be on the back next to the camera

Now THAT is the most realistic render so far. This might be legit.

the back space can easily fit a dual lens camera … i guess this is S8 plus case

If this is true then Samsung should fire whoever thought that having a fingerprint sensor next to camera is a good thing !! One – it is at the back. Two – normally we position our index finger to reach upper center of the device. So I would be hitting the camera lens by intuition.

I can’t imagine using a hardware button for a voice assistant that will be voice activated anyway. Just another fake render. And pretty bad renders at that. Why do people fall for this rubbish?

So more like the S7E and not the N7 with regards to the curve of the edge.

I’ll pass (again).

Bad idea to have FP reader so close to the camera…..we will continuously be smudging the camera when we miss the FP reader……Not liking this idea if this is true….
