Rumors about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8 flagship phone have been piling up over the last few weeks, and the latest one suggests the device might pack an innovative ‘all-screen’ bezel-less display.

Here’s what the publication said:
The bezel-less displays will provide more viewing real estate while a virtual home button will be buried in the glass in the the lower section, the people said, asking not to be identified because the details haven’t been released. The new phones will only come with wraparound displays using organic light-emitting diode technology, the people said.
This isn’t the first time insiders have kicked around the idea Samsung is working on new bezel-less screen technology. Earlier reports indicated the phone could adopt a 4K edge-to-edge OLED panel, but more recent rumors claim a 2K Super AMOLED display is more plausible.
While Samsung has so far refused to comment on speculation about its upcoming flagship smartphone, the phone-maker is expected to launch the new Galaxy S8 early next year at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
