There are big things expected of the Samsung Galaxy S8 after the disastrous exploding Note 7.
Following on from the hugely successful Galaxy S7 the new handset is expected to have a new and improved camera and significant battery improvements.
As there were few design changes between the S6 and S7 models we can expect some more significant changes on the S8.
Graphic designer Veniamin Geskin shows some renders of what we can maybe expected from the S8, which is tipped to be released on April 18th.

The device is expected to remove all bezels and stick to the edge to edge curved screen with the physical home button also being removed and the fingerprint scanner being located under the actual screen itself.
The S8 is expected to come in two sizes, the 5.1-inch Galaxy S8 along with a larger 5.5-inch version with both devices expected to ditch the traditional, flat-screened form factor, favouring a stunning, curved, edge to edge display.
Due to the curve, the larger screen will be able to squeeze into a smaller than usual footprint.
Along with being aesthetically pleasing, the new features with have some pretty useful new skills. The latest rumours suggest that the S8 will include pressure sensitive panels similar to the Force Touch feature found in the iPhone 7.
As Android cannot recognise press-sensitive panels the device will need to run this particular feature through Samsung’s very own TouchWiz interface.
The S8 is expected to be with retailers in April, a slight delay from the anticipated February launch due to Samsung continuing their investigation into why the Galaxy Note 7 burst into flames.
