Media: Samsung has launched Galaxy S8, the smartphone is completely devoid of physical keys
Samsung has begun testing high-end smartphones Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. This writes the Nashville Chatter with reference to close to the company sources. According to the publication, the South Korean flagship full touch control.
Testing several modifications happens in China, but it includes a version of the Galaxy S8 not only for this country but for other countries.
In early December, network sources wrote that Samsung intends to give the Galaxy S8 from the physical Home button in favor of touch, hidden under the glass display. Radical changes in the design of the flagship associated not only with competition from Apple and Chinese manufacturers. Says analysts, Galaxy 8 just has “to be a hit after the debacle with the Galaxy Note 7” and to meet the expectations of consumers.
According to available information, Samsung intends to completely abandon the physical navigation keys, using the entire surface of the screen. The fingerprint scanner will supposedly disappear from the front of the unit. How it will be implemented biometric identification, is still unknown. Perhaps Samsung uses optical sensor recently released by Synaptics.
In any case, the information should be taken with a grain of salt: definitely to talk about something will only be possible after an official information.
