The rumor mill has revealed several leaked photos of Samsung Galaxy S8 in the past few months. Now, a new video clip showcases the alleged Galaxy S8. The device in the video appears to the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone that have been spotted in the leaked photos.
The video clip by Slashleaks lasts only for 5 seconds, but it does reveal the front and rear sides of the alleged S8. It appears quite sleek with the back featuring the LED flash, camera and fingerprint reader. There is no physical Home button on the front.
The black colored variant Galaxy S8 that can be seen in the video seems to be a under production unit as it carries a label with texts like CONFIDENTIAL (Unauthorized use prohibited), No photo allowed, Not For Sale, and Do not leak info. The rear also contains logos for Samsung and Galaxy S8.
The Galaxy S8 is expected to come with a huge dual-edge curved display of 5.8 inches. However, the device shown in the video is not turned on. Hence, nothing much can be understood about the display from the short 5-seconds video except. Rumors have it that the recently trademarked “Infinity Display” moniker by Samsung will be the name given to display that will come on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus (aka Galaxy S8+). The larger sibling is expected to feature 6.2-inch dual-edge curved screen.
