According to a report, published in The Korea Herald, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to be available in two different sizes. The Galaxy S8 basic version will feature 5.8 inches screen and the premium Galaxy S8 Edge will feature 6.2 inches screen. The report also suggests that Samsung has no plans for the flat screen Galaxy S8 variant. Both models will have curved edges just like Galaxy S7 Edge. So, prepare yourself for the first Galaxy S8 version that would not feature a flat screen.
Samsung Has No Plans For The Flat Screen Galaxy S8 Variant
Not only the curve screens, but Samsung plans to make all screen display. The display will be bezel-less, and there would not be any physical home button. So, the screen will be more than 90% on display.
It was expected and rumored for many days that Samsung Galaxy S8 will be bezel-less and there would be any home button, but the news about the curved screen is astonishing.
Another rumor suggests that Samsung is also ditching the 3.5 mm headphone jack in Galaxy S8 as Apple did in iPhone. So, we can easily say that if it happens then, wireless air pods is plausible everywhere shortly.
Moreover, there are not many days left in the release date of Samsung Galaxy S8. It is expected that the release date of Galaxy S8 is 26th of February 2017 before Mobile World Congress (MWC) ceremony, which will be held in Mobile’s world capital Barcelona, Spain from 27th February to 2nd March 2017.
(Update 1: 17 February 2017) The release date is delayed and now it will be released on 21st of April 2017.
Samsung may also launch Galaxy S8 during the MWC ceremony instead of expected date of 26th February. There were also reports that Samsung may delay the release. With all these news, we must say that take this news with just a pinch of salt until they are not official.
