    The last thing I want on an AMOLED display is a navbar, so I hope they integrate the 3 necessary buttons as gestures or something. The leaks are not showing any sort of navbar at the bottom so far. Some leaks also suggest Samsung has been working on their own version of Apple's "force touch" or "force click".

    They would likely be on the bottom like the nexus 6p

    My thoughts too.... Hopefully they can be switched around as well.

    Thought it will just be soft buttons like many other Android phones? Still can come out with other tricks?

    I would probably guess at the buttons being software generated at the bottom as in many current devices. However it would be interesting if they introduced some gesture controls that could be customized.

    I thought I read an article last week about the navigation buttons being customizable. Too lazy to search at the moment.

    Found it. Here's a snippet from a 9to5google.com article from a few weeks ago...

    Let's hope this holds true!

    I would hope the buttons could be themed, as well as change color, brightness and maybe do some image shifting to prevent burn in. Seeing as the navigation buttons on the current phones only light up when you touch them, I would think it should be possible to hide software buttons as well.

    Yeah it would be awesome if the buttons are customizable.

    My understanding is that the display ratio will be slightly longer than usual so the buttons on the bottom don't take up screen space like on other phones.

    Well it'll still take up screen space, it's just they're accounting for that and making the screen larger.

    If the pressure click or whatever they call it rumors are true it might be something weird.

    Maybe 1 soft click is home button, harder one recent apps and fully pressing it back button boy that would be stupid

    I'm sure they'll have the 3 separate ones. Probably have extra functions on them depending on how hard you press.

    I prefer off screen too. As long as the basic functions work, I guess I'll be OK. I don't see force touch being helpful or something I'll use. I think Samsung was the only big manufacturer left using physical buttons anymore though so we're just SOL.

    This would be awesome if true. Like a resolution that's 48 pixels taller than normal. Somehow I doubt it though, because that would be an odd screen size to manufacture. I really hate on screen buttons. Wasted space plus major burn in on AMOLED devices.

    I hope nav buttons aren't going to get burned in. They should definitely have an auto hide mode to hide the nav buttons. But then again, the time display and battery icon doesn't move either, so I don't think it'll matter. People buy new phones every 2 years, and the AMOLED display should easily hold up fine with normal use.
