Take a look at the clearest Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus renders yet

Over the course of the past few weeks, we’ve seen a number of renders surface online allegedly highlighting the design of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus — and now we’re feasting our eyes upon the clearest ones yet, together with a 360-degree video, which further showcases the design of both handsets.

These latest renders, however, aren’t from a disreputable source. They come courtesy of @OnLeaks, one of the most reliable ‘serial leakers’ in the game. It’s worth noting, though, that they’re merely renders based on information we’ve heard in the past — so they should be taken with a considerable pinch of salt.

Samsung-Galaxy-S8-Plus-Renders-Gear-By-MySmartPrice-01-1

Closely tying in with previous computer-generated imagery, this latest set show off two devices with a glass-and-metal sandwich design. Both units appear to feature an iris scanner, USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack and a rear-mounted fingerprint reader (positioned next to the camera).

One of the biggest differences between the Galaxy S8 and its predecessor is rumored to be its button arrangement. Aside from the lack of navigation keys on the front, the power button has been moved from the right to the left of the device. There’s also an additional button on the right, which is presumed to be for Bixby.

For those unaware, the Galaxy S8 is believed to sport a 5.7/5.8-inch display, while  — as its name suggests — the Galaxy S8 Plus is expected to pack a larger 6.1/6.2-inch screen. Both will be dual-edge curved Super AMOLED panels, similar to the ones that ship on board the Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S7 edge.

Other alleged specifications include an Exynos 8895/Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB/6GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel dual-pixel rear-facing camera, an 8-megapixel selfie shooter and a 3,250mAh (Galaxy S8)/3,600mAh (Galaxy S8 Plus) non-removable battery.

New S8 should have curved screen like s7, if anyone likes curved screen like s7 edge, than go for s8+. New S8 should have home button with FP sensor on the front, temparature sensor, bigger display but not bigger dimenssions of the phone (ok maybe a little bit bigger). Think about new futures about camera. The camera of S7 itself is ok, but what can you improve to attract majority. take a look iphone7 and check how fast is browsing (awsome). Try to improve selfie camera, it is really bad, shape of the head is not real,…Dont try to put… Read more »

I hope these renders are fake. This is not S8 we want (I don’t want). Finger print sensor should be on front. How to unlock the phone if phone is simply laying on the table!? If on back, you have to take it in the hand and unlock. Not good, not practical! S8 should be thinner, not more than 7.5mm thin. This looks not so thin but bulky and automatically not nice. And I really hope Samsung will keep home button. I believe majority want to have physical home button. So I hope these are fake…..

I hope so too. I really don’t like where they have placed the fingerprint scanner on the back and how they removed the capacitive buttons on the front. I honestly think that Samsung is not thinking right when they changed the button layout of their devices this year. I would rather have a thicker device with a large battery than a super thin device with a large battery.

To each there own. Most people pick there phone up to unlock it and use it. I personally like to use my index finger

wohohooo, looks pretty awesome! people are moaning about this whole finger print location “issue” like this would be the whole main idea of a phone..” where should we put the fingerprint sensors” haha. i already love this phone and i hope its going to be like this, with those powerful batteries, so then samsung just made another great phone! personally, i rather prefer phone reliability and power age reliability, that i don’t have to hang myself on wall.. also the smoothness of the software and…all the other are only icing on the top. So good job from Samsung and i… Read more »

Looks like the s7 nothing new and if specs are true then not much more than an s7. Same ram and only 11% more powerful

No matter how cool they look, you will need to cover it up with a case. Solving that will be revolutionary….. for Samsung.

I think it would make more sense for Samsung to put the Bixby button on the left, and keep the power button on the right.

“Both will be dual-edge curved Super AMOLED panels, similar to the ones that ship on board the Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S7 edge.”

It won’t be the same Super AMOLED panel. They will bring major improvements to the upcoming Super AMOLED screen including HDR like on the Note 7. You should have known that…

that’s why it says “similar” and not “same”…

The front looks like the Lg G6 pictures, in my opinion its ugly, Xioami did a better job on the design with their Mix.

Samsung have had years to get rid of the home button and I just don’t think they will make that change now either…. As long as the iPhone has a home button then the Galaxy will also have one… We all saw how apple changed their design to the curved rounded metal sides then Samsung followed suit. It’s apple who seem to run the show in terms of design language and obviously that seems to work for the Galaxy devices in terms of revenue

The fingerprint location is awful and shows no consideration for left handed users.

Lg’s design is much better.

They look stunning except the FP Scanner. I still hope these renders are fake and FP scanner is below camera.

That finger print definitely isn’t for me, it’s the first galaxy S that I’m gonna skip.

In all honesty, with the price you’re paying for this, both front and rear facing cameras should be a noticeable upgrade too. If their lower end devices can have a 16MP camera at the front, the S8s should at least be 12, maybe even a dual pixel etc. and bump the rear camera up to a better MP and tech. Wasn’t overly impressed that the highest quality pics on the S7s had to come in a 4:3 ratio either.

Why anyone would need a separate button for bixby
Cant i say like my friend said ” hey siri ” without touching phone .. and if anyone going to touch phone then why dont he press long home button for assistant app !

There is no physical home button anymore but yes there will be likely an option for always listening to a start command like “Hi Galaxy” or “Hi Bixby” but many people don’t want a device which is always listening.

Shouldn’t it be the reverse? The power button on the right and the Bixby button on the left?

It’s convenient when booting the device to ODIN

They do look amazing! especially if they get released in Chrome Black and Silver colour options, really do not like the position of that fingerprint scanner though.
