[Update: Nope] Could this be the Samsung Galaxy S8’s official press render?

Enrique, 27 January 2017

Update: Rumors are a risky game - sometimes you stumble upon the truth and other times it’s just a concept image. This is the case with the “press render” of the Samsung Galaxy S8, it’s just a skillfully made 3D render made by one @VenyaGeskin1.

This particular Twitter account has published many images, claiming some to be leaks of official images but it’s clear now that the renders are based on rumors and various info that came through unofficial channels.


Thursday and Friday brought a lot of news from the Galaxy S8 rumor stack including a leaked live-image and a full list of alleged specs, including a strange resolution that ends up being higher than the LG G6’s. But anyway, the following is an image of what is believed to be an official render of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Now, if you compare the render to the live image we saw on Thursday, they coincide pretty well. The proportions of the camera module next to the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor look spot-on in the image.

If we look at the front of the render, and then look back at the supposed front-glass panel for the Galaxy S8, the two aren’t consistent with the leaks we are getting. So either this is fake, or that glass is.

More will reveal itself in the coming weeks. We are still looking at a March 29 Unpacked event, as well as an April 21 official sale date. Check out the full list of recently-leaked specs here.

I'll be fine, the screen size increase from the S6 edge+ will be only minor and pixel amount increase incredibly minor, and the battery increases by 500 mAh + the 10nm processor which does play a big part if you do something power intensive on the CP...

The display is far more infuential than the SoC and that is considerably larger. Set a high CPU usage app. running and turn off the display with it running in the background, then just play a video. I guarantee the the video will drain the battery mu...
