Samsung Galaxy S8 images confirm key features like soft keys, fingerprint scanner and desktop dock


Samsung Galaxy S8 has been making rounds around tech town today courtesy of the slew of live images leaked showing different aspects of the device. With still a month to go, Sammy fans and analysts are scrutinizing every little detail that they come across as Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be the first flagship device that Samsung will announce after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. People want to see what new features will the device be equipped with to lure disgruntled customers.

According to the live images seen earlier, the navigation bar is not placed at the bottom of the display. As the home button has been removed, developers have integrated the on screen buttons in the navigation bar. This aspect can be confirmed by the images leaked which show the navigation bar and three different commands placed there like the back button, a home key and a multitasking key is present.


Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will not have a home button and both will feature a dual curved display. As the home button has been done away with, the new placement of the fingerprint sensor is at the back of the device right alongside the camera setup. Earlier renders have also shown this placement which today’s leaked images confirm.

In addition, one of the images shows off the rumored DeX dock for Galaxy S8 which was outed last month. The DeX dock will allow users to make use of their smartphone just like a computer. Users will be able to attach a keyboard, mouse and maybe even a printer so that users can use and navigate through their smartphones just like they do on their laptops/desktops.

More about Galaxy S8 will be revealed in the coming days. Samsung will be showing a promo of the device at the MWC, let’s see how they manage to create hype for their new flagship by making people run around in circles guessing what the elements in the promo mean.
