Samsung Display, the tech giant’s display-making arm may have accidentally revealed the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 handset. It has uploaded a series of videos on its official YouTube account that primarily focuses on the AMOLED Display. While explaining the benefits of such a display, it has shown a mysterious phone that fans believe is the highly-anticipated Galaxy S8 smartphone. The phone has slender bezels but does not have a physical Home button.

Dropping the capacitive buttons will allow Samsung to greatly reduce the bezels at the bottom of the Samsung Galaxy S8 handset. This will in turn make it possible to bring the high-res display top the base of the chassis. According to, GSMArena reported about 3D render leaks showing two Galaxy S phones, one with a 5.7-inch display and the other a 6.3-inch screen. The latter is reportedly the Galaxy S8 handset.

Samsung is reportedly dropping the Edge variants from its Galaxy S line because all of its models from now on will have the curved edge-to-edge screen. The YouTube videos uploaded by Samsung Display shows a smartphone that does not resemble any of the Samsung phones available in the market today. Surprisingly, the smartphone in the video has a 3.5mm headphone jack. This will come as a shock to many as it is widely anticipated that Samsung will drop the headphone jack like Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

A number of features have been reported that will grab headlines once the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone is released. One of them is undoubtedly the 3D Touch that is so exclusive of iPhones. The technology will be implemented with Samsung’s new on-screen navigation buttons, which users will be able to customise. The fingerprint scanner could be moved to the phone’s rear.

Another feature that is about to receive a major bump is Samsung’s in-built S Health app that allows users to instantly get in touch with their doctors. The upgraded feature may be incorporated in the Galaxy S8 handset. Samsung is reportedly partnering with a number of health experts such as WebMD and Amwell.
