According to latest reports out of Samsung's home country of South Korea, the specs as well as the design of the company's upcoming Galaxy S series flagship has been finalized.

It's being said that both Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus will not feature a physical home button, making them the first Galaxy S series phones of their kind. The fingerprint sensor will sit on the back.

Also, the standard Galaxy S8 model will not feature a dual rear-camera setup - this has been done keeping in mind cost constraints.

Further, the reports also note that while the standard model will sport a 5.7-inch display, the Plus variant will feature a screen of size 6.2-inch. This is inline with previous reports.

The new rumors also say that even a prototype model of the Galaxy S8 has been developed, and sent to the tech giant's CEO and Vice Chairman. The device, in case you missed, is expected to be made official at the MWC next month.
