MWC 2017: Leaked footage of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus appears online

Leaked videos of what seem to be the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have appeared online.

Leaked videos of what seem to be the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have appeared online.

The videos show off a pair of phones with curved glass, just like the Galaxy S7 Edge, and a complete lack of physical buttons on the front. There do appear to be physical power and volume buttons, however.

Interestingly, the corners of the display on the larger phone appear to be rounded. The smaller phone appears to have rounded corners only in the bottom portion of the display. The phone’s displays also appear to be exceptionally long, almost like the 18:9 display we saw on the recently announced LG G6. This could be necessary to accommodate the additional software buttons at the bottom of the phone or just a trick of photography.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is widely rumoured to be coming in April. From what we’ve heard, the new flagships will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC, at least 4GB of RAM, a QHD Amoled display and more.

The leaked video also bears out earlier rumours which suggested that there would be no physical buttons on the front of the Galaxy S8 units.

Samsung has not officially revealed any images of the S8, and have only teased a silhouette of the device at their keynote at MWC 2017, Barcelona.
