Samsung faced huge losses due to the Note 7 fiasco all across the world. To overcome this and sustain itself at the top, the South Korean company has already started working on its next flagship, the Galaxy S8, which is believed to come with great specifications that include the new AI service assistant. Now, as per latest news coming in, the phone will have a 2K screen and no home button.
The news comes via the famous Chinese leak-star @ice_universe who reported that a 4K screen is not likely to be included, and instead a 2K screen would continue to be in use. There is also a likelihood that there is no dedicated home button, which is something most unlikely of on Samsung smartphones. The supplier apparently hasn’t received an order for the home key components as yet, which hints that the smartphone could have a full screen display at the front instead. The rumoured specs do suggest a 5.1-inch (2560 x 1440p) Super AMOLED display and the smartphone is expected to come with a yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 830 processor, while another variant might come with the Samsung Exynos 8895 processor.

The Galaxy S8 is expected to come with 6GB of RAM and a dual camera setup. Although the official announcement of the phone is still many months away, the leaked poster suggests that the official launch event is likely to take place on February 26. Seeing the development of many new features, a few sources say that the date might get delayed as far as April, especially as Samsung would want to test the device longer than usual to ensure the Note 7 debacle isn’t repeated.
