Samsung Galaxy S8: No 4K display or Home button?

8 November, 2016 Samsung

In spite of Samsung's best efforts to keep things silent, rumors about the upcoming Galaxy S8 are plenty. In fact, you can almost make a complete specifications chart based on what the rumors are providing. However, they are only rumors and therefore, are perfectly capable of being absolutely wrong. We had heard previously that the S8 will feature a 4K display to make VR more enjoyable on the device, but the latest ones are reporting that the S8 will continue to use a Quad High Definition or 2K display just as its predecessors before it. This might actually be a good decision as a 4K display can put tremendous strain on the battery.

We have now heard it multiple times that the S8 will feature a full-screen dual curved display without any physical Home buttons whatsoever. In confirmation to that rumor, new reports are suggesting that none of the Samsung's suppliers have received orders yet for supplying the parts that would be necessary to construct the iconic Samsung Home button. This leaves us to speculate that the fingerprint scanner which has so far been embedded into the Home button will be replaced with an optical fingerprint sensor or may be an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. We will keep you updated as we hear more.
