Samsung Galaxy S8 is all set launch at the company’s Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event on March 29. It has already been rumoured that the company is set out to revamp the design of the phone and will also do away with the home button. Much like the proposed launch of the new iPhone, the new samsung lineup of phones is not set to have a physical home button.
A top leaker for samsung products has posted yet another image claimed to show the Galaxy S8. The tweet reads, “I think this is what you’ve been waiting for”, and is accompanied by an image that shows a dedicated physical button at the left side. The company is said to be adding the dedicated button for Bixby – Samsung’s new AI assistant which will work with native apps as well. Unfortunately, we still don’t know how will the Bixby AI will be used on the Galaxy S8, and we will have to wait till March 29 when the company officially launches the new flagship.
The new leaked image also shows long and narrow display on the Samsung Galaxy S8. This tips that the company may adopt the 18:9 aspect ration, rather than the current industry standard of 16:9. LG’s new G6 also sports a 18:9 aspect ratio and bears a 5.7-inch FullVision display with a QHD+ (1440×2880 pixels) resolution.
