New Samsung S8 Render: Sports Narrow Bezels

by Habeeb Onawole 2

There is no end to the Samsung S8 news floating around the web and today the latest is in form of a render of the up-coming device. Already confirmed to be released at a date later than when Samsung usually releases its flagship device, the render shows some of the other rumors we have heard such as the removal of the physical home button.

The render shows the S8 with a dual-curved display and thin bezels on the top and bottom. The top bezel which used to have the Samsung logo atop the speaker grille, camera, and sensors now has only the speaker and is flanked on both sides by a camera and sensors. The lower bezel on the hand is now just a signboard for the Samsung logo. Taking the new design into consideration, the screen-to-body ratio should be about 90%.


The image which was posted on Weibo got the attention of a Samsung employee who praised the design but was quick to add that the Samsung S8 will not look like the device in the image.

    Ahhhjh yes the home button is finally dying, it always ruined the beautiful screen under glass print is fine

  • I think I prefer it over completely bezelless. Looks nice. 🙂 Pretty sure the render was out before though.
    Also interested to see what Huawei/Honor announces next week. Will probably be similar to this I suppose. The MIX was a cool concept… I just think it wasn’t quite ready for primetime yet.
