Samsung has unveiled its new flagship smartphones – the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

The two new smartphones come with larger screens, with Samsung also removing the physical home button and replacing it with a pressure sensitive ‘invisible’ home button beneath the display.

Samsung confirmed the S8 would have a 5.8 inch screen and the S8+ a 6.2 inch display.

Both will also have artificial intelligence software, virtual assistant Bixby.

‘The Samsung Galaxy S8 ushers in a new era of smartphone design and fantastic new services, opening up new ways to experience the world,’ Samsung mobile president DJ Koh said.

‘The Galaxy S8 is our testament to regaining your trust by redefining what’s possible in safety and marks a new milestone in Samsung’s smartphone legacy.’

Since discontinuing the Note7 in October last year, Samsung has conducted an internal investigation into the cause of the phone’s safety issues.

Mr Koh also apologised to customers at the conclusion of the investigation for failing to meet consumer expectations.

In the new S8, virtual assistant Bixby is able to understand context Samsung says, and can also scan images through the phone’s camera in order to help with commands and queries, showing shopping options when food or drink packaging is scanned for example.

Samsung confirmed the S8 and S8+ would launch in the UK on April 28, with the S8 costing £689 and the S8+ £779.

Both devices come with a 12 megapixel rear camera and an eight megapixel front-facing camera, as well 64GB of storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a MicroSD card slot.

The S8 and S8+ are also both dust and water resistant and have fast charging capabilities.
