Alleged Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus renders surface online

Alleged Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus renders show 3.5 mm audio jack
Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus
The larger sibling of the upcoming Galaxy S8 flagship will apparently keep the old 3.5 mm audio jack that most top-tier handsets seem to drop in favor of the new USB Type-C connector these days.

Most of the Galaxy S8-related rumors we keep bumping into these days miss its larger sibling, a device expected to be unveiled as Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. Sadly, most insiders and analysts talking about this topic expect both Galaxy S8 devices to come without a 3.5 mm jack. Fortunately, a few renders that have just surfaced online show that at least the big brother will keep the old audio connector.

UK-based Mobile Fun has just received a few fresh renders "from an unnamed case maker in China," and these images show a few noticeable changes when compared to the current Galaxy S8 Plus-related rumors. A new button appeared on the left, just below the volume rocker. This one is expected to activate the virtual assistant. However, the most interesting part is that the handset shown in the renders features both USB Type-C and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

In addition to the above, the rear camera opening seems to be large enough for a dual-camera system or a single camera with a generous flash. The front of the handset shows no room for capacitive or physical buttons, not to mention that a dedicated fingerprint reader is nowhere to be found.

All the above should be taken with a grain of salt for now, but it would be great to have at least one Galaxy S8 handset feature the traditional 3.5 mm jack.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
