Well thanks to social media (here's looking at you Twitter and YouTube) we usually have some good information on gadgets and devices before they even come out and the leaks coming out on the Samsung Galaxy S8 are more torrential than trickly.

With the phone set to launch in just over a week, we've learned a few more things thanks to twitter. 

From the above image, there are three options for screen resolution: HD+ (1480 x 720), FHD+ (2220 x 1080), and QHD+ (2960 x 1440). The default resolution is QHD+. 

Now even though there's a picture and all, the news should still be taken with a pinch of salt as we can't say for sure that this is the final product.

There was another leak which shows off the phone’s retail packaging. From the box, we can see that the S8+, a larger model of the phone, includes an option for 64GB of storage.

So...just a little longer and we'll be able to verify or debunk all the stuff we've had so far.

A new leak has surfaced online showing the Samsung Galaxy S8 looking uber cool in its glossy black covering.

Many didn't see it coming and after reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities tipped that the Galaxy S8 may come in no less than seven colors for the glass chassis - gold, silver, bright black, matte black, blue, orchid, and pink - people still wondered about the "bright" black and what it meant.

Was it to be something glossy and akin to the Jet Black piano lacquer finish of the iPhone 7 or...you know, something else. 

The leaked pictures give us insight into this and while we can only see a black slab with curved display sides and corners cos it's not powered, it still looks pretty awesome.

There's also the Samsung logo on the back, a camera lens with adjacent flash and heart rate sensor, as well as the finger scanner on the other side of the camera. That coincides with most of the credible pics or renders we've seen so far of the Galaxy S8, so there is every chance that glossy black chassis lovers will have their wish fulfilled with the S8.

You can check out the photo below

A video showing off a purported Galaxy S8 device has surfaced online throwing everyone into a frenzy.

The video is terribly short though and doesn't really tell us anything we don't already know, but it's fun nonetheless.

Why fun? Well, it's almost certain that the video will be taken down really quickly but the video has shades of Diddy from Dexter's Laboratory saying "What does this button do?"


The YouTuber who leaked it (
505nick aka DkDn) must either be short sighted or he's quite the daredevil.

The phone in the video clearly states "CONFIDENTIAL; No photos allowed, Not for Sale, Do NOT leak Info" and he leaked it out (Although to be fair, nowhere was it said not to make super short videos of it).

There isn’t any critical new information we can see from the 5-second video, which doesn’t even reveal the device from all sides. The only important piece of information that can be gleaned from the video is the barcode and IMEI of the device. You know, actual identifiable information that could be traced back to its source.

So err...for as long as it's available, you can view the video below.
