0

The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be officially unveiled at an event in New York in March, claims a new report.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the new Galaxy S8 will be available in two sizes, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, both of which will include curved screens.

“One of the people familiar with the matter said the new phone is set to be unveiled at an event in New York late next month,” the report said.

Samsung is also expected to remove the home button on the S8, instead replacing it with an iris scanner and a separate fingerprint scanner located on the rear of the screen.

The WSJ also claims the Galaxy S8 will even include a dedicated button that users can use to summon Samsung’s AI assistant, Bixby.

Meanwhile, photos leaked on Friday claim to show the new ‘infinity screen’ that will feature on the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The photos depict the curved edge to edge screen, without room for a physical home button and gives users an insight into what to expect from Samsung’s next flagship device.

The images were shared by tech site BGR and look similar to other photos leaked to Chinese media earlier this year.

Samsung will be hoping the Galaxy S8 will repair some of the damage done from the Galaxy Note 7, which the Korean tech giant was forced to recall after some handsets caught fire.
