Samsung is preparing to unveil a pair of Galaxy S8 smartphones significantly different from past models, according to someone familiar with the company’s plans. Because they lack the traditional navigation buttons found on handsets in this line’s first seven years, they will both feature displays even larger than Samsung’s traditionally oversized second-half flagship, the Galaxy Note.

The two models, again confirmed to be both featuring dual-edge panels, will measure in at 5.8- and 6.2-inches respectively, while their aspect ratio, much like LG, is moving away from the standard 16:9 to a wider 18.5:9. Keeping overall dimensions similar to the two S7s, however, the batteries will reportedly be 3000mAh and 3500mAh respectively.
