It is in the Galaxy S line that Samsung has its tops with the highest number of sales. These are the flagships that the company targets for the masses, which means that it is one of the most important ranges in its portfolio.
This range of products could be a pioneer in one of the biggest changes in the mobile technology sector. Apparently, Samsung will be able to completely get rid of the physical buttons on the Galaxy S line.
Samsung Galaxy S without any physical buttons could arrive in 2025
This theory was raised on the social network Twitter and quickly propagated by other sources linked to the sector. Still, it is information with which we must be cautious.
According to this testimony, Samsung plans to mess with the market in which it operates by completely removing the physical buttons on its flagships of the Galaxy S line. A decision that could materialize in 2025.
This means that the Samsung Galaxy S25 could be the first without these components. Instead, the South Korean will only bet on the software to perform the same actions triggered by the power button and volume selectors.
It wouldn’t be the first time we’d see a similar solution. Huawei has done something similar with the Huawei Mate 30 Pro by putting the volume controls entirely in its software and thus exponentiating the lateral curvature of the smartphone’s screen.
This attempt at innovation did not give the intended results after being discontinued in the next generation of this range. The various user complaints regarding touch sensitivity problems and response times contributed to this.
Yet another question arises about the alternative to the on/off button of the imaginary Galaxy S25 without buttons. A software solution to turn off the equipment is feasible, but to what extent would it also be possible to turn the equipment on or when the software of the equipment crashes?
The complete removal of physical buttons from smartphones still raises some practical questions. As futuristic and exciting as the idea may seem, we have to consider how practical it will be.
