While huge and rich displays with high-resolutions, fast and powerful processors, and amazing cameras are great and marketable features of smartphones, sometimes it is the small details that helps bring the experience to the next level. In Samsung’s case with the upcoming Galaxy S8, a possible camera launch shortcut could be one of them.


According to a recently leaked image, the settings of the Galaxy S8 have been revealed and according to those settings, there is a shortcut to launch the Galaxy S8’s camera just by pressing on the phone’s power button twice. Prior to this, Samsung offered up the shortcut by double pressing on the home button.

However if you recall all the various leaks we’ve seen so far, one of the biggest changes to the Galaxy S8 would be the removal of the home button. This means that the home button shortcut won’t work anymore (obviously), and we guess Samsung has decided to turn to the use of the power button instead.

This probably isn’t the most groundbreaking feature of the upcoming phone, where the rumors are pointing towards a beast of a device, but like we said these quality of life additions should be able to help to round things out for users.
