A recent report indicated that Samsung plans to drop the 3.5mm headphone jack as well as the physical home button from its upcoming Galaxy S8 flagship device, hinting that Samsung will change things up in a big way for its upcoming smartphone.
Now Bloomberg reports, citing people “with direct knowledge” on the matter, that Samsung plans on creating a Galaxy S8 with an “all-screen design.” According to those sources, the physical home button will indeed be removed, and there will be a virtual home button found at the “lower section” of the display. The phone will also feature an OLED “wraparound display.”
Finally, the report says Samsung is aiming for a release date in March, but that with all of the plans and design tweaks, that launch could be pushed back to April. Part of the delay is said to be tougher testing procedures, thanks to the issues wit the exploding Galaxy Note 7.
