Usually it’s an insider that shares information about devices early, but Samsung might’ve done that already for its upcoming flagship.
Two official video advertisements released this week show what could be the Galaxy S8 that’s expected to launch within the next few months.
- Report says Samsung will skip MWC 2017, launch the Galaxy S8 in April
- Samsung might not be ditching the 3.5mm audio jack just yet
- Early case concepts may serve as tip-offs to Samsung Galaxy S8 design
While trying to promote its advanced Super AMOLED technology used in displays, Samsung used a reference device that aligns with rumors surrounding the soon-to-be announced flagship. Everyone on social media is going nuts as you wouldn’t expect Samsung to expose the Galaxy S8 itself. Plus, if it is true, the design of the Galaxy S8 will be radically different what we’re familiar with.
These are the two videos:
A couple of things are causing everyone to believe this is the Galaxy S8. First, the screen-to-body ratio is extremely high. Both left and right sides have virtually no border. The top and bottom, meanwhile, have thin bars for Samsung to put its logo and small components. Next, a physical home button is missing. Samsung could be showing integration of the home button in the display’s glass, a feat accomplished by utilizing Synaptics’ latest innovation.
Because the Galaxy Note 7 didn’t stay on the market, millions of people worldwide are going to consider the Galaxy S8 for their daily driver in 2017. So, as you can image, Samsung is working to live up to great expectations.
