Samsung Galaxy S8 release date is drawing near as new renders and leaked information consistently. Ghostek, a case maker has created a render that shows a Galaxy S8 fitted inside its waterproof case. It reveals a lot about Galaxy S8’s design. However, it is astonishing to see that the rear camera does not feature an LED flash.
Industry experts had revealed earlier that the South Korean company would be bringing overhaul improvement to the design of Galaxy S series smartphones. Hence, the Galaxy S8 is expected to arrive with a revamped design.
There is no concrete evidence to confirm that the Galaxy S8 design revealed by Ghostek is real. However, it cannot be dismissed since case makers are known to receive information on forthcoming smartphones quite earlier so that they can manufacture various kinds of accessories.
The Galaxy S8 sitting inside Ghostek Atomic 3 waterproof case shows that the smartphone features a dual-edge curved display. Previous rumors have also stated that S8 would sport such type of curved screen.
The Home button is missing on the Galaxy S8 in the new render. Also, the fingerprint reader is neither present on front nor on the rear of the smartphone. As early rumors have stated, the fingerprint sensor may come embedded under the display. Hence, it may not be visible in the image.
What’s worrisome about the new render is that there is no LED flash for the main camera of Galaxy S8. It is unlikely that Samsung will axe such an important feature on S8, but case makers are required to build accessories based on the specifications provided by the smartphone companies. The lack of LED flash questions the legitimacy of the image.
Ghostek is a well-known brand that makes cases for iPhones and Samsung Galaxy smartphones. BGR has reported that the Galaxy S8 render by Ghostek was revealed by an unknown user with unproven track record on Weibo. According to the publication, a source has revealed to it that the render has been made on the basis of actual data originating from Samsung factories.
