The Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone series will come in two sizes, both having an infinity screen and a relocated home button. According to the Wall Street Journal, two Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphones will finally be unveiled at a special event in New York next month. The upcoming handset is said to be the key to repair the damage done by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which led to a recall after a battery issue.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Set For March Launching

"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," claimed by the WSJ. Samsung will finally reveal its make or break Galaxy S8 smartphone devices at a special event in New York next month. A report previously wrote that the two Galaxy S8 would launch at Samsung’s next “Unpacked” event that will be on March 29, while the other end said that it would initially go on sale on or around April 21.

One thing for sure is that Samsung will not unveil the phone at the 2017 Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona, according to Business Insider. MWC events have been traditionally used by Samsung to showcase the latest smartphones, especially in its Galaxy S line. When asked, Samsung declined to comment why they chose to separate the launch of the upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

Features To Expect On The New Samsung Galaxy

The two smartphones are given the codenames Dream and Dream 2, representing the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus respectively. Both versions will have unique screens since it can curve down both at the left and the right sides of the device just like to the Galaxy S7 Edge. The two smartphones will have screens with an approximate size of 5 in and 6 in.

According to The Guardian, the new feature called as the "infinity display” will cover the majority of the front part of the device, with just a little body on the top and bottom of the screen that is not for the display. Two other reports also said there wasn’t even room to put the Samsung logo or its brand name on the front of the device. Aside from that, another new unique feature is that the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back of the device. The Samsung Galaxy S8 will have a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.
