Samsung Galaxy S8 Smartphones Features, Price and Specifications
Design of Samsung Galaxy S8
- No flat models rumoured, with two curved instead
- No home button and minimal bezels rumoured
- Similar dimensions to S7 rumoured, despite screen size increase
Rumours claim Samsung will release two curved devices this time around rather than one flat, one edged, so we are expecting the S8 to offer a dual edge display like the S7 edge, which reports from both the Guardian and VentureBeat support, as well as a leak from PocketNow shows.
It has also been reported that the S8 will have a dedicated side-mounted button to launch Viv, the Bixby-powered personal assistant developed by Siri-founder Dag Kittlaus. The assistant has been confirmed by the company, but the dedicated button hasn’t as yet, at least not officially.
