No Home Button: A Boon for the Users?
The latest leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy S8 affirms that the smartphone's front glass panel or the rumored 5.7-inch display is curved on the edges, as well as shows no or minimum side bezels. The bezel on the bottom of the smartphone is quite minimal and older leaks have hinted that the top bezels will also be in proportion to the bottom ones.
The leaked image also shows that the Galaxy S8 would be made of glass and metal. The bottom of the handset - as evidenced by the latest leak - has a few ports including the 3.5 mm audio jack.

The Galaxy S8's leaked image also affirm rumors that it will have a curved edge like the LG G6. The device's display is switched on in the leaked image and one can espy Weibo running on the Galaxy S8, suggesting that this is probably a prototype of the smartphone.
