The Internet rumors and speculation about the Samsung Galaxy S8 appear to be never ending at this point. However, the latest twist on the company’s rumored smartphone may have come from Samsung itself, or at least from one of its other related divisions.

The source of these latest reports are two YouTube videos posted by Samsung Display, to promote its AMOLED smartphone screens that it provides to other companies, as well as for its own devices. Both of the videos show what appears to be a smartphone with a display that only has small bezels on the top and bottom. It also lacks a physical home button. Both of these features have been rumored for the Galaxy S8.

So did Samsung actually leak out the look of the Galaxy S8 in these clips? Well, most likely the answer is “No”. Both of these videos were shown as examples of the company’s overall smartphone display technology and are probably not directly linked to what the Galaxy smartphone team has in mind for its next flagship device.

Having said that, the videos are likely a clue as to what the display technology will be like inside the Galaxy S8, even if the design shown in the video might not match up to the actual product.
