[Galaxy S8/S8+] why S8/S8+ deleted Home button on front?

Last Update Date : 2018-04-09

While there technically is no physical home button on the front screen, we designed a new UX around the Infinity Display¹ to offer a more natural user experience. The home button is embedded underneath the screen.

 

Using a combination of hardware and software, we engineered a home key that responds to different levels of pressure. So if you’re watching a movie or playing a game – of if your screen is off – you can still press the center button to get to your home screen or wake up your phone.
