For starters, the camera bump on the Galaxy S6 doesn’t protrude by 1.3mm, but by 1.7mm. The one on the Galaxy S7 also doesn’t stick out by 0.7mm, but by 0.8mm. So, these inaccuracies do cast a rather suspicious look at the render. Apart from this, a completely bump free rear will be a nice little change for the S8. It’ll complete the device’s overall design, which is also rumored to feature glass at the back.

Other features for the Galaxy S8 include an edge to edge screen, a 10nm processor, a virtual assistant, desktop connectivity and more. Samsung will launch two devices this year, differentiated by screen size. The smaller Galaxy S8 will measure 5.6-5.7″ while the larger variant will feature a screen of 6.1-6.2″ diagonal. Samsung looks to have a winner on its hands. Lets just hope the company avoids any Note 7-esque disaster. Thoughts?
