After the now discontinued Galaxy Note 7 devices almost ruined the tech giant’s good name, the company knew it had to step up its game in order to get back into the game. With more leaks surfacing online revealing what might be the genuine look of Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S8, many can’t wait to get a hold of the most anticipated smartphone device.
According to a new render, it shows that the hardware Bixby button is sitting on the right edge, while the volume and power buttons on the left edge. On the back area is the fingerprint scanner and the camera sensor seated side by side – the Samsung logo is at the back as well.
The front of Samsung Galaxy S8 device is housed by the large dual-edge curved display with no Home Button or navigation buttons present at the bottom. The top area of the display also bears sensors positioned slightly different from what was spotted on previous leaks. The Galaxy S8 smartphone is also tipped to sport an iris scanner in the front as well.
Based on previous rumours, it was shown that the Samsung Galaxy S8 variants will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor or a 10nm in-house processor to be pushed out to select regions.
Paired with 4GB RAM, and offering 64GB of internal storage that’s expandable via microSD card up to 256GB, the Galaxy S8’s also features front camera sensors reading at 8-megapixel – the rear camera at 12-megapixel, with both maintaining the f/1.7 aperture of their predecessors.
The device houses a 3000mAh and 3500mAh battery for both variants and is expected to come with other optimisations to improve on overall usage time.
