the looming possibility of a second Galaxy Note 7 recall in light of recent events, there's no question that Samsung's next flagship will need to be something particularly special. Consumer trust in the firm has been hit considerably over the past month or so, and aside from being exempt from any battery issues, the next major Galaxy will have to be a real showstopper. Likely to be called the Galaxy S8, previous scraps have suggested that the device(s) will include a 4K display for VR among other features. Now, a new report out of Sammy's native Korea has dished out some very exciting information.
ETNews suggests that the Galaxy S8 will do away with the home button, with the fingerprint sensor instead baked into the display itself. Given that the Note 7 is now curved-edge-only, it has been speculated that the Galaxy S8 will do likewise and ditch the flat panel option altogether. Interestingly, this report adds that the S8's curved display could extend to the top and bottom, giving the device a truly full-screen finish. Yep, the Galaxy S8 could be completely bezel-free.First and foremost,
