Did these Samsung Display videos out the Galaxy S8?

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.

My advice to samsung is... stop making s**twankin' colour variants. Learn from Nokia N8 silver.

Dual cameras are overrated and they make every phone look ugly.

Not unless Samsung makes one then dual camera set up becomes life.

sad to admit but yeah... unless you're the artsy types who want bokeh, it's pretty much pointless. Not once did I use the 2x zoom on my 7 Plus.

The P9 monochrome is nice to have. More than worth sacrificing some aesthetics.

Pixel or S7, both SINGLE camera phones are still the best smartphone camera currently.

If it's true, then this is the best phone that Samsung ever design

Those capacitive button users will disagree though..

Note 5 user here. No freakin clue what you talking about. I ABSOLUTELY DESPISE the front capacitive buttons AND the physical main button. S8 design is pretty much my wish come true! I only want software buttons, thank you samsung!!! Can't wait to see how the note 8 looks but i'm already sold to the s8 rumored design.

He obviously does... It's marorun after all, so he'll praise LG and bash Samsung at every chance he gets.

But I hate how hardware buttons like always have a delay in responding.

It isn't bad at all when you disable the light from the capacitive buttons on the Galaxy lineup, on some models like the Gold model and etc, it basically dissapears under the color. Probably save like 1% battery life too from disabling the cap buttons lights

Are you seriously talking about how much battery life you think you can save with turning off the lights on the capacitve buttons? You will never notice how much power they i may could use.tbey aren't flashlights.

46. mikehunta727 unregistered

No the main reason of me turning off the lights is cause they would be distract me when using the phone, I used to have the Gold S6 Edge + and the cap keys shined brighter on that phone then other Galaxies due to the gold... But turning off the keys made it look like there wasn't even any capacitive buttons there (could just ever so barely see the cap key cutouts for the light on the gold platnium model) It looked really clean on the Gold platnium model with the cap key lights disabled It helping battery life quite marginally was just something I mentioned. Stock setting for capacative keys on Galaxy devices is 6 second timer

If you want onscreen buttons then piss off and get an lg or moto z. People like you are ruining it for us who like physical/capacitive buttons

well.. the reason I like capacitive button on galaxy S and note is because those button didn't eat screen area... and what's more important is, there's no wasted empty space under screen on galaxy S and note since they use that part for buttons... BUT, with above design, there's minimal wasted space, and on-screen-button is fine in this case

76. mitchytan92

Agree. You can't really say on screen button wastes screen space when hardware button wastes the space already out of the box. Unlike for Pixel case, that is extremely waste of space.

Finally the samsung logo from front is gone. Thank you. Design looks good. Waiting to find out how improved the camera is.

Oh, that's more likened to what the G6 will offer albeit more interesting with a probable second screen. Btw, I'm a little bit disapponted that the leakers have done gone all out to get leaks for us customers yet especially after being dared by samsung not to do so. Btw the (accurate) iphone 7 plus leaks where already out by march ffs, lol ;) Common onleaks/evleaks get your ass to work!!!!!

Why even bother to post this? Why this click bait? It's just a generic (placeholder) Samsung phone like always. Nothing here to see. And since most rumors says no homebutton for the S8 you can imagine how the S8 will look like. Think of an S7 edge with smaller bezels.
