Samsung Galaxy S8 Video Leaked Ahead Of Launch

Samsung Galaxy S8

With only a few days left for the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8, a new video has been leaked via Weibo. The video showcase the date on the front display followed by the temperature and few icons on the bottom side. The user then taps on the middle icon, and you will be able to view several app icons on display.

The first impression after examining the video is that the display looks very awesome even if you view via side angle. The user then turns the handset and displays the rear side, which includes a rear camera sensor, sensors including the traditional logo of Samsung.

Leaked by a Weibo user named “Sexy mosquito 1”, the video includes a title stating that the Samsung S8 get started but will not explode. After the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, users are really afraid to buy Samsung handset. Even if the upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ gets cleared by reviewers, users still will have doubts to invest for an expensive smartphone, which will ultimately destroy into pieces.


With the emergence of the leaked video, it remains to be seen as to whether the video is real or fake. We don’t have any idea as to how the user got the handsets before the official launch.

We expect that the handset showcased on the video could have leaked out from the manufacturing or production facility. Sometimes, the company could have themselves leaked the video on Weibo with a fake username to generate hype. It will be tough for a third-party to have access to an unreleased smartphone.

We are unable to understand the language spoken in the video, but it should be Chinese since the video originates from Weibo. That said, you should accept the facts in the above video only with a pinch of salt since there is no official confirmation.
