Samsung is all set to unveil its much awaited flagship Galaxy S8 next month. The South Korean manufacturer sent out invites to the media for an event scheduled to be held on March 29 which also comes with a teaser of what seems to be the new Galaxy S8.

As with any flagship device, the S8 has seen its fair share of leaks that give us a good idea of what to expect in the new smartphone. However, two new videos have now surfaced ahead of the official launch which show the alleged device is all its glory.

Is this what Samsung S8 looks like?

The video feature what seems to be the new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in black and gold colour. They show a device with curved displays and minimal bezels at the top and bottom which fall in line with earlier leaks and renderings.

The leaked S8 features no physical home button and uses three capacitive touch keys instead. A newer USB C port can also be spotted at the bottom of the device along with a much appreciated 3.5mm headphone jack.

The video, however, does not delve into specs though earlier rumours suggest the S8 to have Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB RAM. The edge-to-edge bezel less display might allow for a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch QHD AMOLED display in the two new devices.

The S8 is also expected to include Samsung’s new dock, giving it a desktop-like experience. The new ‘DEX’ feature will make the Android device function like a personal computer when docked.
