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.

    i know those probably aren’t going to be the next Galaxy phone but man they sure look cool. it’s nice to see a video of what the phone might look like minus bezels and I like the look a lot.

    Nothing beats Samsung displays. It’s the reason I bought my first Samsung, and it’s why I keep buying their phones.

      Im already so ready to get myself an s8 lol. First in line!

      If I had enough money set aside to buy it unlocked, it would likely be one of my top choices for my first phone, right next to the Moto Z and Pixel.

    They won’t be able to fit the large SAMSUNG logo with that kind of bezel.

      rumors says they’re replacing the bottom buttons with the Samsung logo 😂 what a step back

        😹 hey, for the people (me, included) who felt front facing buttons are a gimmick and take up space, now have a cool logo and that takes up space and is a gimmick….we really need to watch what we ask for

    If this thing is real i’ll happily give Samsung my money and that’s something I never thought i’d say.

  • No one noticed but.. Look, no “Edge”.
    It’s FLAT.

    • Daggett Beaver |dBz|

      There’s no reason to believe it’s an S8. It could be just a prototype to show off their displays. A flat phone would be easier to film in order to do that, especially the part where they compare it to an IPS LCD.

      • Or.. That’s what they want you to think. Therefore, advertisement.

      haha, indeed i was thinking the same and i also thinks samsung will release 2 models again with a non and edge screen.
