The leaked image of Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus' on-screen navigational buttons has been shared around the internet. The image also unveiled Samsung's Secure Folder app, which design revealed the upcoming flagship.

Physical Home Buttons Gone

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are switching to on-screen navigation buttons and ditching the physical navigation buttons. The image shows off a bottom bar that features the "arrow" back button on the right, as per Sam Mobile.

The leaked image also shows a different design, which gives an idea that Samsung might be using a fingerprint sensor for security features on its apps and contacts, as noted by The Verge. The upcoming handset might reduce bezels.

Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus Updated Specs

According to Android Authority, the upcoming Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus might sport a USB Type-C port and a fingerprint scanner. It might also feature a curved Super AMOLED display and thin bezels. It also might come with 3.5 mm headphone jack at the bottom of the handset with a speaker.

Recent reports claimed that the upcoming handset would be powered by Exynos 9 processor, which will be called Exynos 9810. It is an ARM-based System-on-Chips (SoCs) manufactured by Samsung Electronics and has been confirmed by an intern named Rajbhan Kushwaha.

Samsung's Flagship: Released Date And Estimated Prices

Reports also noted that the handsets might be more expensive than S7 and S7 Plus. Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is anticipated to be revealed on March 29 and expected to be on sale this mid-April. Previous reports said that the upcoming S8's selling price would roughly be $950 and the S8 Plus will be higher, which will cost $1,050. The pricing comes from Eastern European retailers, Ukraine's Hryvnia.

It may be 15-20 percent higher than its predecessor, Galaxy S7. The upcoming S8 and S8 Plus might claim the opportunity to redeem the company's sales for the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, which millions of devices were recalled after the exploding reports.
