A supposed working Galaxy S8 has popped up as a star in a new short video, briefly showcasing the front, home screen and back of the device. The whole package jibes with everything we've seen and heard about the upcoming Samsung flagship, so it seems pretty legit - there are the minimal top and bottom bezels, the rounded corners, the face recognition cameras up top, and the finger scanner on the back.
new interface that is said to come with it, and the navigational back, home and menu buttons whose iconography we've already seen a few times before.As far as software goes, the purported S8 here seems to sport the
The clip is pretty short, and doesn't really showcase anything new for the initiated, just the whole Galaxy S8 in a working condition. It could be a prototype, or some engineering or rep sample unit, but it gives you a pretty good general idea about how one of the black versions of the phone could look and behave, do you like what you are seeing so far?

It looks weirdly stretched out. Not a fan at all. Hope Apple gets this one right.

It's actually a clever way to make a big phone feel small enough for one hand. Try writing with one hand on an iPhone plus model, the nexus phones or anything else with a huge bezel on a 16:9 display. Your thumb gets to stretch _a lot_, doesn't it?

I might be crazy, but i would like a little more bezel to hold, and it looks a little weird. Better have a case and a sceen P.

It's a shame if it doesn't come with DT2W.

Why not? It's effective especially for that phone that tall (the power button is like in the upper half of the device), absence of the physical home button and a rear FPS (idk if it works like a power/wake button), dt2w is needed. Many Android OEMs use it, theres no really disadvantages to it. Or we'll just wait for Apple to implement it first for Samsung to copy it. Works everytime.

The S8 is shorter than that Note 7. I think they look taller because its even slimmer than the S7 edge. Waiting on that 7" smartphone. I think we are past the stage of smartphone comfort size. I think the Note 8 only major selling point will be a 4K QLED display.

Looks really weird. 2:1 radio display is stupid. Blue Coral Note 7 was the best looking Samsung phone. This phone looks like a cheap you compared to note 7.

Is it a coincidence that all of the PA trolls have Avatars that look like retards?

People laughed and doubted the first Galaxy Note. They said it was too big and nobody wanted to use a phone that big. The screen was 5.2 inch. Now look at the present. Large screen phone is the norm. Galaxy Note series is at the top of smartphone food chain. Tall, stretched, edgeless screen may looks weird now. But it may be the new standard in the next years.
