Samsung’s new smartphone, the S8, which set to be released next year, may feature an edge-to-edge display, and no physical home button, a report from Bloomberg has suggested.
The report also reiterated earlier rumours that the new flagship device will introduce an upgraded digital assistant.
The bezel-less display is expected to provide a bigger viewing screen while maintaining the same overall size for the new phone. The physical home button may be given up in favour of a virtual home button place at the lower section of the screen.

Much is on the line for Samsung as the smartphone giant works to recover from the Note 7 debacle. The ill-fated smartphone was recalled after reports of the device catching fire and exploding costing the company $6 billion.
Meanwhile, the report added, Samsung may introduce OLED screens in its new smartphone, which are a lot thinner than liquid-crystal screens. This new screen technology may offer better colours at lower power consumption.
