The buzz around the Samsung flagship phone for 2017 -- the Samsung Galaxy S8. It is being seen as many as Samsung's comeback after the Note 7 fiasco and therefore the furor around it has been massive.

Samsung Display have not helped matters releasing two promotional videos showcasing a Samsung phone. The internet has been agog with speculation that the videos reveal the prototype of the Galaxy S8 smartphone.

What we know so far from several leaked renders is that the smartphone would be arriving with a larger screen-to-body ratio. The two videos released by Samsung Display are in Korean so we have no idea what was said or written but we do see the display that will be incorporated on future smartphones by the Korean company.

According to online rumors, the phone shown in the two video is a prototype of Galaxy S8 and it sports a thinner top and bottom bezels compared to the recent Samsung flagship. The physical Home button is absent on the device.

From earlier reports it has been gathered that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to come in two screen sizes. Its 5-inch screen variant is rumored to launch as Galaxy S8 whereas its 6-inch display model is speculated to arrive as Galaxy S8 Plus. The larger of the two devices is believed to come with a dual camera setup where the rear panel of Galaxy S8 is expected to feature single camera.

As for what's under the hood, the phone houses the Snapdragon 835 SoC while 6 GB or 8 GB RAM is likely to power the Galaxy S8 variants. Samsung is also expected to release Exynos 8895 chipset variants for Galaxy S8. It is expected to come loaded with Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. It is expected to come in storage models of 128 GB and 256 GB.

The rumours have suggested that like the iPhone 7, the 3.5 mm audio jack will be dispensed of, but some renders have suggested otherwise.

Other features of the smartphone include water-resistance capabilities, microSD card support, Bluetooth 5.0 and 4,200 mAh battery. Speculations have also hinted that the Samsung may sell an option S-Pen accessory for Galaxy S8 models.

We don't know the exact date of the launch of the S8, but rumours suggest it could be the 18th of April.
