Well, there is a new rumor in the town which is certainly going to make you forget about the Galaxy Note 7’s incidents of catching fire! Let’s come to the much anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 release. This next flagship smartphone is coming with some big hardware changes when compared with its predecessors.


What would be the changes and upgrades? The clicky and pressable button is rumored to be gone and might be replaced with a non moving part like the one in the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Another speculation calls off the Home button completely, which could be replaced by an on screen version. In this case the fingerprint scanner will be separated from Home function.

According to GSM Arena, Samsung Electronics is planning to fill all the front portion of Galaxy S8 with just the screen and that is why they are eliminating the home button. But it is still unclear how they arrived to this decision.

It is also said that Samsung has decided to adorn the upcoming Galaxy S8 phone with a dual rear camera arrangement. This is something which seems obvious because a number of competitors have done the same thing recently. The only area of concern is that whether Samsung will make it an all-in-one dual camera arrangement or the separated dual camera arrangement. One of the dual camera sensors will have 16 MP resolution while the second one will have 8 MP resolution, as reported by ETNews.

The Galaxy S8 chipset will be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 and Snapdragon 830 which will be in 50/50 split.

Expected Release Date For Samsung Galaxy S8?

If Samsung follows its normal schedule, Samsung Galaxy S8 can be released in February, and availability in March.

Dates can be pushed earlier but seemed unlikely since Samsung will not want to experience the same battery exploding fiasco.
