[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.
