According to a report from TechRadar, one of the hottest rumors in Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is that it will have a foldable screen. The company might also remove its home button and also the upcoming Samsung smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is considered as a Phablet, or a phone-tablet because of its big screen.

Report says that from the Galaxy Note 3 onwards the devices all had 5.7-inch screens. So, it seems the company has settled on that being the optimal size. But, rumors claim that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will get bigger especially it is rumored that even the Samsung Galaxy S8 could have a screen size of 6.2 inches.

Samsung might ditch the home button for Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and be almost all-screen on the front. There is a big possibility that there will be a fingerprint scanner that will be built into the display. Samsung has been working for the foldable phone tech for years and it's rumored that the company will launch two foldable phones in 2017.

Some rumors claim that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is also expected to be equipped with new camera gestures. An improved stylus is also a very big possibility. As for the phablet's design, a slimmer body with less bezel are both possible. The device expected to be powered by next year's best processors.
