If you are keen to know how (and what) the Galaxy S8 will be like, you know about the leaks that claimed Samsung’s next flagship will come without a headphone jack. And that seemed credible enough, for its closest rival Apple had done that already on its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Contrary to that a new leak now shows the Galaxy S8 might in fact come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, put alongside a Type C USB port. An image showing renders of the phone’s cover cases was revealed by slashleaks that hints about the structural design of the phone.
The case appears to be that of a big phone something the size of Galaxy Note, something wider than usual Galaxy S smartphones. But the uploader terms it as ‘SAMSUNG GALAXY S8 CASE’. So if that is to be believed, Samsung is retaining the beloved 3.5mm jack.The bottom of the case also shows it will have a Type C USB port, and speakers at the bottom edge (far left) like it is with the usual unibody Galaxy design but on the opposite side. Though, the gap on the far right kind of resembles the perfectly measured space for a stylus exit which makes you think for once that the Galaxy S8 is the luckiest to come with a stylus (and the Note dead forever?).
The camera shape resembles that of Galaxy S7, but the sensors (heart rate, stress meter and what not) seem moved above it. All the physical keys (except the home button, if it would have one) are to the right and there is a pull out slot for SIM and storage cards.
From earlier leaks — Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is expected to run a Snapdragon 835 chipset with 6GB RAM with an Exynos variant launching in select markets, including India. The phone could have up to 256GB of internal storage and the oldest rumour (that hasn’t been rubbished, till now) is that it will come with a dual curved display, like the Note 7, and that it or some variant of it, will have an all-screen front. The launch has been purportedly postponed to April.
