Samsung Galaxy S8 Render Images Flaunt Stunning Screen-to-Body Ratio

December 22, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It’s almost pretty must certain that Samsung will be going with more than just a few major revamps in its Galaxy S Series flagship this year. Listed among the bunch of additions that are said to be making its way are an improved AI assistant, 4K resolution, maxed specs, and finally, the edge-to-edge display.

It has been widely speculated that Samsung will bring the edge-to-edge display technology to bounce back from the Note 7 downfall, and to deliver an early punch to iPhone 8, which is said to be featuring a similar display. Nothing has got confirmed as of now, but a recently emerged render images of the Galaxy S8 hints that the company is headed in the right direction. A set of six render has now been posted on Weibo by designer KingwayLee.


Like we can assume, Samsung’s edge-to-edge display is focused on cutting down the bezel thickness on either sides of the screen by increasing the screen-to-body ratio. This is in contrast to what Apple has been working on, as iPhone 8 is said to completely ditch the top and bottom bezels. As per the render, Samsung Galaxy S 8 will retain the top and bottom bezels, but it will be far thinner than that of in any of the previous smartphones from Samsung.

Like it can be seen in the image, Samsung also appears to have ditched the physical home button, embedding the fingerprint sensor beneath the glass. There were reports which suggested that the fingerprint sensor would get shifted to the rear-side of the device. But as per the images, the fingerprint sensors will stay on the front side.

The placement of the fingerprint sensors should barely be of any importance, as it’s the impressive amount of space acquired by the display that has been the highlight of the images. The curves that come along should also give Samsung Galaxy S8 an edge over its rival in terms of the edge-to-edge displays.

Whether or not this remains the final design of the product is something that is yet to be confirmed. But if this stays true, we will finally have a Galaxy S series flagship that comes with a major overhaul in design.
