Samsung Galaxy S8 Vs Note 7 Vs Galaxy S7 CAD Drawings Leak; No More Camera Bump For S8
Just like its predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a regular feature of the rumor mill. The device has leaked in nearly every form of the word, from live images, to renders and specifications. Samsung's got a lot riding on the Galaxy S8 after the Note 7's brutal failure. To that end, we've got some fresh schematics that compare the S8 to its predecessor and the Galaxy Note 7. Take a look below to find out more.
Fresh Samsung Galaxy S8 Schematics Compare Device With Galaxy S7 and Note 7
Leaks so far suggest a drastically different design for the Galaxy S7 as compared to its predecessors. Apart from the edged display, Samsung will change nearly every other aesthetic detail for the S8. The major design upgrade this year will be an edge to edge, bezel free display for the S8. There won't be a single button on the device's front, as evidenced by leaks so far.
Just a while back a source out of China claimed that Samsung will do away with a feature that irritates a lot of smartphone users. The Galaxy S8 will completely remove the camera bump on its rear according to sources. It'll be a nice win for the device, which will add a lot to the lineup's overall design. Today's renders, courtesy of legendary tipster Onleaks adds more to this speculation. Take a look.
The schematics show the Samsung Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S7 and the Note 7 stacked together in CAD drawings. The S8 has a measly camera bump of 0.2mm. Compared against the Note 7 and S7's protrusions of 0.8mm and 1mm, it's a godsend. It's great news for Samsung lovers all around. However, the images also come with their share of bad news. Compared to thicknesses of 7.9mm for both the Note 7 and S7, the S8 will be 8mm thick.
That's not a lot of width addition if you ask us. The S8 will massively overhaul specifications when compared to its predecessor so such a minimal loss isn't very relevant at this point. The device will feature an iris scanner, a dual camera, Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 835 and 4GB of RAM. Samsung will also break tradition with the S8 and launch the device a month later than it generally does with the S8 lineup. Thoughts?
