Samsung Galaxy S8 gets first TV ad as two new leaks emerge

Clearly, something is working for Samsung on the marketing front, because a similar "unpacked" video previous year for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge received less than 5 million hits.

It's not known as to when the update will be sent out to other parts of the world, but knowing that Samsung has started seeding it in the United Kingdom, we don't think other markets should be far away now.

How the Galaxy S8 stacks up against other phones. As a matter of fact, the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and J7 already received FCC (Federal Communications Commission) which somewhat indicate that the devices' launch is forthcoming.

If Kuo is on the money, we can also expect the Galaxy S8 and S8+ to feature a 12MP main camera, 8MP front-facing camera, USB-C, a Windows Continuum-style PC dock and seven colour options: gold, silver, bright black, matte black, blue, orchid, and pink.

More than any of its predecessors, the Galaxy S8 has been leaked extensively over the past few weeks. Many companies want to distribute videos about their corporate images, products or services in this way.

The latest suggestion is that Samsung will produce both 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch versions of the Galaxy S8, and that there could even be a surprise in the resolution department.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the US, Japan and China will get phones running Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, while Samsung's own Exynos 8895 processor will be used in Europe and the rest of Asia.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be feature rich devices.

But it seems that that's all about change, as Samsung has (re) committed to a monthly update cycle for its unlocked Galaxy handsets in the US.

But as most leaks have pointed out by now, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus will feature a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device, next to the camera sensor.

Finally, it is widely believed that Bluetooth 5.0 functionality will be included with the Galaxy S8 when it arrives on the market. Copycat Samsung was desperate to match Apple's new biometrics based solution, but in October 2013 Patently Apple reported that Samsung had failed in being able to deliver this feature for their then Galaxy Note 3. A reliable tipster named Evan Blass also revealed that the smartphone is expected to be unveiled by Verizon Wireless as Samsung Galaxy J7 V in the United States on April 10.
