12 Samsung Phones That Have a Home Button (Physical and 3D Touch)

I will answer the most asked questions about this topic later on but below are the most recent Galaxy phones with a home button.

They are old and most of them no longer receive updates (Security and OS) from Samsung. I have also decided to stick to the flagship lines (S and Note series).

The S7, S7 Edge, S6, S6 Edge, and S6 Edge+ used a physical home button while the remaining on the above list used a 3D touch or pressure-sensitive home button.

The latest Samsung phones do not come with any kind of home button, we swipe now.

They come with an all-screen display, with thin bezels across the top, bottom, and sides of their screens which makes them look stunning.

However, don’t forget that up until 2016, Samsung phones were known for their signature home button.

The Last Samsung Phones That Feature a Home Button

Galaxy S7, launched in 2016, was the last Samsung phone with a physical home button.

Samsung S8 launched in 2017 and Samsung S9 launched in 2018 came with 3D touch or pressure-sensitive home button.

In 2019, Samsung announced the S10 lineup with a punch-hole (Infinity-O) display and one of the things that had to go away was the home button.

Nowadays, most of us are used to gestures already and I don’t think we will be going back to the days of buttons be it physical, 3D touch, or on-screen.

If I were to list out all the Galaxy devices that come with a home button, I would have to list almost all the phones that this manufacturer has ever announced.

Most of which has been discontinued and most of which you can’t even see around talk of buying them.

Why Did Samsung Remove the Physical Home Button?

To give room for a better and more modern design with tiny bezels and more display real estate. The LED notification light was also removed, and the front-facing camera is now housed in a small cut-out on the display

Like I said a few moments ago, the home button used to be physical on Samsung phones, then it became a 3D touch, then an on-screen button.

So, all Samsung phones launched between 2017 and now, come without a physical home button starting with the S8 which has a pressure-sensitive home button.

Final Thought

It was a hard decision for Samsung to part ways with their signature home button in 2016 but right now, we all know that it was a great decision considering how stunning their latest smartphone looks.

The removal of the home button cleared the pathway for more display real estate, thinner bezels, and overall great designs.

The physical home button won’t be making its way back because an all-screen display was a better design and worthy upgrade.
