Now, the alleged Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone might have just revealed in promo videos which were posted by the company’s subsidiary Samsung Display. The videos were first spotted by Slashleaks. One of the promo videos demonstrated a large AMOLED display on which the possibilities of next-gen displays have been showcased. If the rumours are to be believed, the smartphone shown in the video is expected to be the Galaxy S8 which will feature an AMOLED display and a very thin bezel at the top and bottom of the device with no physical home button. Another promo video confirmed several details which resemble with the information we came to know about Galaxy S8 earlier. Recently, two separate reports of Galaxy S8 have appeared online- one about the size variants and later about the 3D renders. The smartphone shown in the promo video and the 3D renders strongly indicates a nearly bezel-less design. The device also revealed a bigger screen-to-body ratio and no capacitive buttons. With no physical home button, the Galaxy S8 could come equipped with an optical fingerprint sensor. Moreover, the video suggests a flat display design of the smartphone which could signify that Samsung may continue a flat design for its smartphone alongside the Edge design. The promo shows off sharper colours and low battery consumption on its AMOLED display, as per the YouTube description.
