As per latest rumors, the all new Samsung Galaxy S8 might be released on April 18 contrary to Samsung's previous flagship launches that mostly came in March.

The latest Galaxy S8 leaked photos feature a near-bezel less design with extremely thin bezels on top and bottom. The physical home button is gone, the edged screen is similar to that of earlier Galaxy Edge models. We are expecting, as per reports leaked earlier, that the fingerprint scanner and home buttons will be embedded within the display.

Hi Mohit,

As of now, rumours are strong that next year Samsung will come out with only one flagship device. However, we cannot assume or speculate. Since, Galaxy Note series has been scraped they might have to come out with two model, one with bigger display to fill the void created.
