Samsung plans to give its Galaxy S8 phones an all-screen front design, according to a Bloomberg report on Thursday that cited "people with direct knowledge of the matter."

Not only would such a design offer more space for viewing, it would also integrate the home button into the glass screen. The Galaxy S8 is slated for launch in March. It's Samsung's hope for recovering from two recalls and the end of production of the Galaxy Note 7 this year, due to reports of battery fires.

A Samsung spokesperson told me, "Samsung does not comment on rumor or speculation," so it sounds like we'll just have to wait and see.
