Unofficial Galaxy S8 render hints at what the design might look like

We recently saw the first leaked live photo of the Galaxy S8 and it more or less confirmed some of the things we’ve been hearing about this handset. For example, it confirmed that the physical home button is being ditched and the fingerprint scanner is being moved to the back. It also confirmed that the handset will have an amazing display-to-body ratio.

Since that leaked picture was a bit blurry, this unofficial render of the Galaxy S8 is going to give you a better idea of what the Galaxy S8 might look like. This render is based on the current rumors and reports about the Galaxy S8 so it’s not the real deal but works well as a reference point.

The render shows us that the Galaxy S8 might have a dedicated hardware button for the Bixby artificial intelligence assistant, the edge-to-edge curved “Infinity” display and a fingerprint scanner on the back. What do you think about how the Galaxy S8 is shaping up to be so far?

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S8 on March 29 and release it by mid-April.

Better put fingerprint sensor in the middle…. diificult to place finger.

Glad they finally look to be killing off the physical home key. Having used a variety of LG devices and the Nexus 6P as my daily device, it’s not a problem having the fingerprint sensor on the back of the device. It works well and becomes second nature. I imagine it would be the same with the S8, even though the sensor is off center a bit. If I could give the designers my two cents, I would say stop racing for the thinnest device crown. I want to be able to use my device throughout the day, without having… Read more »

My view is someone just cut the home button picture from other phone and pasted vertically in s8
Because even if they place fingerscan at back it wont be look like home buttons of older samsungs

Why re you posting this crap, the image that you 1st posted was a clear fake. It did not even say Samsung in the back and the speaker grill was not right, just to get started, it was a clear fake, you now showing off someone who makes a copy of it, why when it was a clear fake

Big mistake to put the fingerprint scanner at the back.

* You have to lift the phone from the table if you want to read any message.
* You can’t unclock it while driving (I’m talking about making calls – not texting).
* You have to hold your phone with two hands to reach the scanner (unless your name is Slenderman).

Agree with bad positioning of the fingerprint scanner.
But if rumors are true, we wont be needing the fingerprint that much if S8 came with iris scanner.

Still, judging by the look of it, this render is fake.
No one really know how the new fingerprint scanner will look like.

Older flagships have the rectangular scanner ‘coz it also is a home button.
If samsung ditch the home button, will they still be using the rectangular shape fingerprint scanner?

Last I knew, any and all manual cellphone use in a moving vehicle was prohibited in 19 states with a handful of others restricting use in only construction and school zones. 🙂

The smartphone market stucks and there is no the new advanced technology near around. I agree with “ASSASSIN2SE7EN”. Every new smartphone has more expensive price tag and I think they don’t deserve these prices anymore. I can say this also back is the worst place for the fingerprint sensor. Samsung is the predecessor of the front side fingerprint sensors for Android phones but now this is very bad decision for the brand.

Not nearly good enough for me to upgrade from S7 edge. A future Note 8 might be the way to go.

Pretty sure this render has already been proven to be fake and quickly removed by the person who made them after he was found out. Among many aspects, the fingerprint sensor was filled in with the Photoshop paint bucket tool. AndroidPolice has an article about this.

My point is that I don’t really see any benefit in using this as a “reference” regardless of the knowledge of it being fake.

The front looks great, the “infinity Display” is definitely something to look forward to. Not overly impressed with the back, too similar to previous gen, this was supposed to be a revamp, I was still expecting the glass back for wireless charging etc. but I do not like the look of the fingerprint scanner or its position.

Still holding hope for a flat version

I honestly think that the design we’re seeing in the last leaks is not the final one. Remember the leaked e-mail. Samsung wanted to keep everything secret and probably they leaked a false design by themselves to keep the real one secret easier. This one is to Note7ish, too old and not innovative enough.

The back is ugly.

Not a bad look. But 3000 and 3500 mAh is kind of low compared to now days norm.
