Having said that, Samsung has already given orders to their suppliers to start manufacturing the 6-inch displays for the Galaxy S8 Plus along with the 5-inch screens for Galaxy S8.

The rumor also revealed that Samsung would be removing the home button key that makes room for the display itself. Also, the S8 Plus will boast of the same size as that of the Galaxy Note 7 because of the lack of a home button on the front.

Samsung is internally testing various prototypes for the Galaxy S8, and that is the reason why these rumors are coming out. Other than this, the Galaxy S8 is also said to miss out on a 3.5mm headphone jack and will come with a steep price as well, compared to Galaxy S7.
