Did these Samsung Display videos out the Galaxy S8?
A couple of videos released by Samsung Display yesterday, feature news about AMOLED screens. Unfortunately, it is in Korean which means that we can't understand a word of it. But the big news coming from the videos require us to see, which means that the language barrier doesn't factor into it. The two videos just might have starred prototypes of the Samsung Galaxy S8. The device in question features thin bezels, which we expect to see on the new model. It also fails to have a home button, which is something we also expect to see from Samsung's upcoming flagship model. The fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S8 will most likely be found embedded underneath the display.

We should point out that the phones in the video are using a flat screen, which goes against the renders that we have seen for the handset thus far. The Samsung Galaxy S8 reportedly will feature a dual-curved edge screen which means that a separate Samsung Galaxy S8 edge model will not be produced this year. Instead, a premium 6-inch Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus could be released, carrying a dual camera setup in back.

We also can't imagine Samsung giving the green light to a pair of videos that would accidentally give away one of the hottest secrets in the industry right now. What we will probably see is the number of renders and leaked images continue to pick up as we head toward the possible February 26th unveiling of the phone at MWC in Barcelona. There is talk that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be released on April 18th.

Check out the videos from Samsung Display, both of which can be found below.
