Renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 flagship handset have been revealed by Instagram user and designer @designwoos.
Benjamin Geskin, the person behind designwoos, is a graphic designer who typically makes renders based on rumours regarding the latest handsets. These new images combine a long string of leaks into what we can expect from the new Samsung flagship. Design will be much the same as the S7, however bezels will be thinner. The flush rear camera bump also remains. There’s also a USB-C connector on the bottom, which would be a first for the Galaxy flagship.
Other notable design features include dual front cameras which we presume is for the iris scanning technology, the removal of a home button and a headphone jack (hooray). The design seems to be based on the edge variant, which features a curved front panel.
Inside the Galaxy S8, we’re expecting to see the most powerful hardware currently available. This includes Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor plus 6GB of RAM and iris scanning technology. Samsung is also expected to bring Bixby, the company’s all-new virtual assistant and possible S Pen compatibility.
Samsung won’t be announcing the handset at Mobile World Congress, with a launch slated for sometime in April.
