New image reveals Samsung Galaxy S8’s on-screen button

We came across the yet unreleased Secure Folder app for Android 7.0-powered Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, and the app teased the Galaxy S8’s design. Samsung is said to be ditching physical navigation keys on its Galaxy smartphones for the first time, starting with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus. Today, a new image (possible of the Galaxy S8) has surfaced the Internet, showcasing the on-screen button of the device.

Thanks to the new image, we can now know the design of the on-screen buttons on the Galaxy S8. There seems to be a dedicated area at the bottom portion of the display for the navigation buttons, and the design is different from that used in stock Android. The back button is on the right side, opposite to what Google and most other smartphone manufacturers use, so it would be easier for long-time Galaxy users to adapt to the on-screen buttons on the Galaxy S8.

We should keep in mind that the image might not necessarily be legitimate, so take it with a pinch of salt. The Galaxy S8 is expected to be announced on March 29, and go on sale sometime in April this year. Both the variants of the Galaxy S8 might feature curved Super AMOLED displays, on-screen navigation buttons, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a USB Type-C port.
