More unofficial images suggest a screen size ratio closer to 2:1 instead of the expected 16:9 on both the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

Right off the heels of a chassis leak last week, there are now even more leaks detailing the design and dimensions of the upcoming Galaxy S8 series. The supposed renders below come from sources close to CNet Korea and reveal some interesting details on the smartphones.

The info appears to be in line with previous rumors including the rear fingerprint sensor adjacent to the camera. Both USB Type-C and a 3.5 mm headphone are mentioned in addition to the very narrow bezels that Samsung had hinted at in the past. Interestingly, the Galaxy S8 Plus may be both slightly thinner and about 10 mm longer than the existing Galaxy S7 Edge as a result of its unusual screen aspect ratio of about 18:9 or 2:1.

The smaller Galaxy S8 may include a 5.6-inch display and the same flattened edges and curves as its bigger brother to reduce the chances of unintentional touch input. With recent rumors pointing towards a no-show at this year's MWC, Samsung's official press event on February 26th could still give some insight on what to expect next from the Galaxy series.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
