#iPhone8 #GalaxyS8 – Rumored Specs: Samsung Galaxy S8, iPhone 8 Both Dropping The Physical Home Button? : The rumor mill continues to churn out possible specs of the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8, the anticipated 2017 smartphone models from Apple and Samsung, respectively.
Both are expected to get radical changes and if the latest specs rumors pan out, iPhone 8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be the tech giants’ first flagship smartphones to not come with a physical home button.
According to Android Authority, citing Korean news website ETNews, Samsung wants to eliminate the iconic physical home button for its Galaxy S8, which as everyone knows, is where the fingerprint sensor is incorporated.
In order to push through with this, the South Korean company has to find a solution to successfully embed the sensor in or underneath the screen glass of the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Eradicating the home button will also allow Samsung to create a bezel-less edge-to-edge display, supporting specs rumors that the Galaxy S8 will have a full-screen display.
“The handset is still expected to feature a dual-curved display just like earlier Galaxy phones, but the top and bottom bezels are reportedly going away as well,” BGR shared.
