[Update: Another video!] Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus hands-on video leaked

Update: Another video showing the Galaxy S8 in action has cropped up thanks to retailer MobileFun, and this one shows the phone actually being operated via the display. Check it out below before it gets taken down!

Original Story: We’ve seen a lot of leaked pictures and renders of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus over the past few weeks but it appears that a hands-on video of the two flagship smartphones has now been leaked online. The video seems to have been leaked by someone based in China and it shows us both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus.

It’s a short video so it doesn’t actually provide a walkthrough of the device’s features but we do get to see the Always On Display of the Galaxy S8 Plus and the home screen of the Galaxy S8. The soft keys that have replaced the physical home button are visible as well.

The video doesn’t reveal anything new as far as the design of these handsets is concerned. Both have a dual-edge curved display with minimal bezels and no physical home button with the fingerprint sensor being repositioned at the back.

It goes without saying that we will continue to see more leaks related to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus in the days leading up to the official launch. Samsung confirmed yesterday that it’s going to launch the Galaxy S8 on March 29 at an event in New York City and London.

For all those who are worried about the fingerprint scanner placement, Samsung is doing this to push the use of the iris scanner. Eventually, they may even ditch the scanner totally.

It looks fantastic, but being a former owner of the N7 coral blue and now a current owner of the N5 64gb sapphire blk… I can’t wait for the N8 because I didn’t wanna give up my N7. Awaiting the N8 bcuz I’m in love with my Spen, but the S8 + is tempting if it’s @ least has the 6″2 screen display.

Looks like there isn’t going to be a massive difference between the leaks and the actual device then. I genuinely believed they were false leaks all this time purely because Samsung exec. specifically asked to not leak this years phone. Still, it looks beautiful, but I will be holding for the S8

Will also be holding out for the Note 8. Hopefully they change the position of the fingerprint scanner by then. Placing it right next to the camera is a retarded move.
