The removal of the physical home button is revolutionary for Samsung as that home button was iconic and something that set the Galaxy line apart from most phones, other than the iPhone.
The campaign marks the latest attempt by carriers and other companies-including Samsung itself-to leverage the Galaxy S8, which is the highest-profile smartphone to hit the market in months. The device recently obtained the wireless charging certificate from Wireless Power Consortium too.
Samsung is not giving up on flip phones even though it is 2017 and companies are working on curved or bendable OLED displays.
This phone is expected to come out into the Korean markets only, and might not get an worldwide release.
Some of the highly-anticipated features of the phone include wireless charging, fingerprint scanner, water and dust resistance, and support for Samsung Knox and Samsung Pay. However, it seems Samsung is keeping the scale pretty small on this release. The upcoming flip phone model will also sport a decent 12 megapixel camera in the rear combined with a 5 megapixel camera in the front. There is no information revealed about the release date and price of that phone. Samsung is taking quite the innovative route with these phones.
According to rumors, new flip phone will get some Galaxy S8 or S8 plus features. It should be noted that the Galaxy S8+ 6GB RAM model launched in Hong Kong isn't locked to any particular carrier, which means it will work nearly anywhere in the world. Since anything but a totally safe handset would basically end Samsung it's near certain this new version of the phone will be super, super safe.
