    Hello guys!
    I'm a product designer from Brazil. Sorry for the mistakes, my English is a little rusty.
    I did a concept art of the new Samsung Galaxy S8.
    Honestly, after the problems with the Note 7, I don't think Samsung will take a risk and make drastic changes in the design of the S8. Commercially speaking, the design of the S6 and S7 obtained a great success and it wouldn't be worth breaking a concept that's winning, especially after the great disaster with the Note 7 where the company needs to recover the losses. Lot of changes = Very risky at the wrong time!
    I believe that will occur some current design improvements such as reducing the thickness of the edges resulting in a larger screen and the absence of the home button, but no sudden changes.
    I did a concept of how I think the S8 should appear, and would like to know what you think.
    Thank you
    Pepe Lima

    Nice renders!

    A couple things I'd change, though...
    1) MicroUSB port. Not gonna happen. USB-C for sure.
    2) Rumors point to the headphone jack going the way of the Dodo, and although it's not confirmed, it is a very likely trend now, so maaaaybe they'll scrap it.
    3) This is just me wishing for the impossible, but metallic red. Oh, yeah!

    You're absolutely right about the USB-C.
    About headphone jack, I hope not. I believe that the world is not yet ready to abandon the 3.5 jack.
    Red.... I have to confess, it's a really really really interesting choice! I liked!

    Yassss!!!! Ironman red!!!!!

    I've honestly not used the headphone jack on my phones for a couple years (except on my brief experience with the V20, and only because the DAC only worked with wired Headphones). BT is where it's at! I even have BT waterproof headphones to keep me relaxed at the pool without bothering other people with my strange taste in music (OK,not strange, just... not so popular haha).

    I would choose the black too. I own a S7 Edge black and always wonder how it would be awesome if it were entirely black.

    Sounds that way, fully onscreen buttons and FPS either on the front below the glass or on the back.

    Always love it when people create their own renders of devices. So much imagination. Keep up the great work. Just one small thing. For most smart phones in 2017 it will be USB-C connections.

    Thanks Matty! The USB-C will be present in the S8 for sure! I didn't put in this concept simply by distraction. At the time of modeling, there are so many details that we ended up forgetting something. LOL
