The new rumors for the Galaxy S8 have Samsung removing the physical buttons from the front of the phone, expanding the internal flash storage, and including 6GB of RAM. Depending on the region you buy the Galaxy S8 in, you can expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, but there will be an Exynos 9-series model that will be sold, too.

Samsung plans to remove the home button, where it will deploy a new fingerprint sensor that is button-less and reportedly uses ultrasonic technology, reports TechTastic. As for the storage, Samsung made its Galaxy S7 available in 32GB, but the new Galaxy S8 smartphone will reportedly arrive with up to 256GB of storage.

We can also expect dual cameras on the back, 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, faster wireless charging, a virtual assistant, iris scanner, and more.
