Samsung recently confirmed that it would be breaking from tradition and keeping the launch of its next flagship for sometime after the Mobile World Congress. But it looks like the company wants to whet the appetites of audiences at MWC by revealing a short one-minute video teasing the Galaxy S8. The news comes from Korean publication Korea Herald, which has a good track record with such information.
It remains to be seen exactly what the video will feature, as Samsung is unlikely to pass off any concrete information given the official launch of the handset will take place a month after the company’s MWC event (where it is likely to show off the Galaxy Tab S3 instead of the S8). But the video should offer some form of confirmation for all the Galaxy S8 leaks and rumors that have permeated the web in recent months; unique features like the rumored Bixby voice assistant and the almost bezel-less display are likely to be the focus of the teaser video.
The Galaxy S8 is expected to come in 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch display sizes (with 18.5:9 aspect ratio) in glass bodies similar in size to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. It is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor (at least in the US and China), possibly have a variant with 6GB of RAM, and feature an improved front-facing camera with autofocus functionality. Samsung is keeping the 3.5 mm headphone jack intact according to reports, and also staying away from the dual-camera trend that has been adopted by numerous smartphone manufacturers, including Apple.
