Don't worry, you'll still be able to launch the Galaxy S8 camera quickly with a button
We bet there are many of us who are asking themselves the pressing question "now that Samsung has ditched the physical home key on the Galaxy S8, how am I supposed to quickly launch the camera by double-pressing it?" Well, we can sleep tight and nonplussed now, knowing that Samsung has simply moved the quick camera launch action from the front to the sides. 

Judging from the leaked Galaxy S8 photos the other day, that depicted the phone riding in someone's car, there will be a way to start the camera app by quickly pressing the home key on the left twice. That's what's written under the "Quick Launch para Cámara" option in the menu here. Not a bad deal, if that's what's been keeping you up at night.

How about launching it by pressing the Bixby button?

Article is wrong. The button on the left is the Bixby button not the power key. So you can launch camera by double pressing Bixby key.

Translate from spanish: Push the power on button twice to launch the Camera.
