Even though a number of cases designed for the Samsung Galaxy S8 have allegedly been leaked, none of them is set to match the leaked image of the phone released by Evan Blass. That is, until recently today.
Legit Cases For The Galaxy S8 Leaked
A couple of pictures found that recently surfaced online have shown two cases that are apparently made for the 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy S8 and the 6.2-inch Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. Both units will be featuring a Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution.
According to PhoneArena, these cases appear to be legitimate because of the placement of a cut out for a rear-facing fingerprint scanner that is located on the right of the camera. This is exactly the layout that we have seen from the Galaxy S8 in the photo disseminated by Blass, who is heavily considered to be one of the more reliable smartphone tipsters out there.
Why This Could Also Be A Fluke
The cut out on the left is big enough to fit both the flash and the camera. But with all the legitimacy of the image, here's a little bit of us playing Devil's Advocate here; if you look at the alleged picture, there is plenty of space around the Samsung logo which screams for some editing.
Additionally, it isn't very clear if the cut out for the fingerprint reader is big enough to allow a finger to press the button. Thus, it would be advised that people should take this story with a grain of salt.
About the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus
According to CNET, the two handsets will be powered by either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset or the Exynos 8895 SoC, to go along with the 4GB/6GB worth of RAM. A 12MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing selfie shooter are also expected to be incorporated.
A Type-C USB port will also be included, with the Galaxy S8 expected to carry a 3250mAh battery. The official introduction of the much-awaited handset is rumored to take place on March 29.
