The screen is going to be a new screen, based on the current rumours.

There will be no physical buttons at the front, all touch-based buttons.
when I changed to Sony Xperia, my frenz who are samsung fans said they will never use soft key home button. but when S8 rumours have soft key home button , they all start praising it
cyberac likes this.

Touched based does not necessarily mean on screen buttons. Might be either solid state button like the iphone7 or capacitive buttons

I'm not a Samsung guy... but this may be the phone to look forward to....

Today I decided not to re-contract for other phone but convert my line to Non-contract SIM plan so that come April hopefully can recontract for S8

Samsung's Galaxy S8 rumored to sport bezel-free design and virtual home button

http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/tech-...al-home-button

From article:
According to the latest rumors, the upcoming Galaxy S8 will sport an all-screen, bezel-free design that's even more extreme than the Xiaomi Mi MIX. To achieve this all-screen design, the Galaxy S8 will supposedly have wraparound displays all over.

In addition, reports also say that Samsung will implement a virtual home button to allow for the all-screen design.

If this is really s8e, I think it's really v beautiful the design is amazing

However i wish they would further improve on their software because it is quite laggy when I open many apps or 10browsers on hwz. Typing and it's not as responsive

From the article:
"...the company needs more time to work with external agencies to carry out plans on recovering consumer confidence before releasing a new phone."
