Watch: First Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8+ Video Hits The Web
By this point we are confident that you will have read numerous, countless rumors about what the Galaxy S8 will look like when Samsung finally takes the wraps off the device at its New York-bound Galaxy Unpacked event in March.
Fans have seen some photos, drawings and lots of words describing the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+, but now you’re going to see it in video, and not just once but twice. In two different colors, no less. Excited?
You should be. The first of the two videos, both of which are very short indeed, gives us our first full glimpse of the Galaxy S8 as well as its larger iteration, dubbed the Galaxy S8+. Both devices are now confirmed to have done away with any hardware and capacitive buttons on the bottom of the device with new software buttons taking their place.
This allows for a larger screen to live in a smaller body, and in a world where screens continue to grow that is something most welcome. It also means that the fingerprint sensor will move to the rear of the device, although we are yet to see the back of a working phone, even in this video.
The second video gives us our first look at a white Galaxy S8, and this in particular shows off the sheer number of sensors hidden at the top of the device. These are more hidden on the black Galaxy S8, but that white option does look very busy indeed.
Both of these two videos give us our best yet look at the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and they are enough to tell us that these are going to be seriously good looking phones. The size difference between the two devices is also striking in that initial video, and we think seeing both in the flesh will be vital for anyone looking to make a purchasing decision between the two.
That said, all speculations and rumors leading up to the aforementioned Galaxy Unpacked event in New York on the 29th of March will be laid to rest once and for all. Till then, we can’t wait to get the two phones in our hands!
