Samsung Galaxy S8 renders leak in video

The Samsung Galaxy S8 won't be at Mobile World Congress later this month, but here's an early glimpse of how it might look.

The video was posted by prolific leaker Steve Hommerstoffer (who tweets with the handle @OnLeaks). He teamed up with tech blog GearIndia to put together these designs, which are purportedly based on factory-sourced CAD schematics (i.e. the blueprints which factory workers will use to manufacture the phones).

The video shows both the Galaxy S8 and what it calls the Galaxy S8 Plus.

The designs match what we've heard in previous leaks. The main difference from the Galaxy S7 is the lack of a Home button, which lets Samsung use a slimmer bezel and have a bigger screen in a smaller footprint.

These design tweaks were backed up recently by Dutch tech blog Techtastic, which found a retailer selling screen protectors for the forthcoming phone.

The Galaxy S8 is said to debut in March or April. As well as the above design changes, it's thought to boast a personal assistant called Bixby. Designed as a rival to Siri and Google Assistant, it's rumoured to support eight languages from the start, which is three more than Google Assistant.

The S8 is sure to be one of the biggest phones of the year. Check back for more leaks and rumours on it in the coming weeks.
