Samsung Galaxy S8 specs: Next-gen Galaxy S handset expected to come without a clickable home button


#Samsung #GalaxyS8Samsung Galaxy S8 specs: Next-gen Galaxy S handset expected to come without a clickable home button : Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S handset, dubbed Samsung Galaxy S8, has been quite active in the rumor mill recently. The latest word on the street for the South Korean-based manufacturer’s next flagship installment has suggested that fans should expect to see a rather significant change on its front screen design once it gets released sometime in early 2017.

Rumors coming out of Samsung’s home country of South Korea said that the Galaxy S8 smartphone might not come with a clickable home button, according to a report from ET News. This change, if the report is in any way accurate, could actually refresh the overall design of the handset, considering that it hasn’t gone through any significant changes in the past — aside from the Edge variant, of course.

Because of its removal, fans believe that other features for it could also be moved and one in particular is the fingerprint scanner which can be found in the Samsung Galaxy S7’s home button, GSM Arena reported.

The rumor also mentioned that Samsung is planning to go for a full front screen for its Samsung Galaxy S8 handset. However, the South Korean-based tech giant still hasn’t released any statement regarding the matter and fans shouldn’t expect to hear any official word from the company about it until the year 2017 arrives.

With this in mind, it would be wise to take this one with a pinch of salt, and consider it a mere rumor until proven otherwise. Meanwhile, in other news, Samsung has reportedly entered into a collaboration project with Qualcomm in manufacturing the next-generation system on chip (SoC), Snapdragon 830, using the mobile company’s 10-nanometer process.

This chipset, as what tech enthusiasts believed, is being expected to be placed inside the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone, possibly alongside the company’s other variant, an Exynos-powered device. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is speculated to make its public debut sometime in early 2017, the same timeframe pattern for when Samsung officially unveiled its previous iterations. Source: mnrdaily
