If there is anything you will surprise in design the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus when they are presented in the month of March, it will be due to the disappearance of the physical home button, which has given wings to Samsung to increase the screen-to-body ratio to leave a mobile that looks spectacular.
Even in those renders it is possible to glimpse what it will mean to have a terminal that almost dispenses with the bezels and that follows the path opened by the Xiaomi Mi MIX. And now we have the design and dimensional drawings of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus from a highly reputable news source.
Those renders present us with an aspect ratio screen of 18,5: 9, which corroborates the information provided by Evan Blass last week. By being able to eliminate the physical home button, these two phones will have the 2: 1 ratio aspect called Univisium and that the LG G6 will also have it. This type of format is being used by Netflix to record its original series.
We have one new location for the finger scanner just as The Guardian mentioned in their leak. A fingerprint sensor that maintains the elliptical shape of the previous S7.
Although the biggest surprise of the S8 and S8 Plus is the impressive screen-to-body ratio by Samsung's standards. By removing the physical home button and shorten the top and bottom bezels, we are left with a larger screen in a smaller frontal space.
The source confirms the sizes of 5,8 ″ and 6,2 ″ for the S8 and S8 Plus respectively, although the radius of curvature has been reduced to the Note 7. That diagonal measurement on the screen translates to 5,6 ″ in the Galaxy S8 and 6,08 ″ to the 6,2 ″ of the S8 Plus.
The screen-to-body index of the Galaxy S8 would place it as top phone in its class as far as that metric is concerned. What makes us more eager to know that smartphone in which it has been able to reduce the bezels on all sides, a point that will place the Galaxy S8 in the center of all eyes when be presented on March 29.
