Unlike previous devices, is there reason why S8/S8+ deleted Home button on front?

Last Update Date : Mar 22. 2018


While there is technically 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 – or if your screen is off – you can still press the center button to get to

your home screen or wake up your phone.
