Early leaks and reports of the Samsung Galaxy S8 mentioned that this would be the first device from Samsung in a very long while that will feature no buttons on the front of the device. Unfortunately, the phone's actual release date remains a mystery, with several dates in April - April 14, April 21, and April 28 included - all having been mooted. The iPhone 7 has a 4.7-inch screen and the iPhone 7 Plus ships with a 5.5-inch display.
Though we will not see a new iPhone before September, the South Korean giant is doing everything it can to reparate the damage done by Galaxy Note 7.
Here's a side-by-side photo I took of the LG G6 next to the HTC U Ultra at Mobile World Congress last week.
Leaked specs claim the Galaxy S8 will feature a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, while its dace could be 85 or 90 percent screen.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to come with a price tag of $799 / €799, while its bigger sibling Galaxy S8 Plus costs $899 / €899.
In August 2015, following the discovery of a massive security vulnerability affecting hundreds of millions of Android devices, Google said that it would release monthly security updates for its OS. The listing also confirms the arrival of wireless charging.
Samsung plans to announce the Galaxy S8 line at a press event in New York City on March 29. "Due to some limits of iris scanning such as speed and accuracy, we have made a decision to add facial recognition to the Galaxy S8".
More details were confirmed by KGI: full-screen display with no physical home button, 3D-curved cover glass screen, proximity sensor, IR-LED transmitter and receiver for iris recognition, ambient light sensor (ALS), front/sub camera, and receiver. Another reason would be that Samsung will face strong competition from Apple this year.
