With Samsung being unable to keep a lid on the flow of leaks going on, we find ourselves surrounded by both image and video leaks occurring even before the S8 has been officially introduced/teased by Samsung. The amount of interest and popularity it has amassed, even at a pre-launch stage is totally unheard of.

The video displaying the front of the S8 in all its glory was leaked by the famous ‘tipster’ who goes by his twitter handle @mmddj_china. While the language is understandably in Mandarin, you can’t help but notice the rounded display of the Samsung Galaxy S8 which seems to be the norms among all the flagships of 2017, including the recently unveiled LG G6.
While it is true that Samsung recently provided us with a teaser to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ during the MWC, if we go by the current rate of eruption of tips and leaks surrounding it, the S8 stands to lose its penchant ‘WOW factor’ well before its launch.
