Samsung got the smartphone enthusiasts buzzing with two new ads on YouTube recently. The ads show Samsung's brand-new AMOLED displays.

And at the end of these ads there is a mysterious smartphone that shows up. It's believed that the phone is the upcoming Smasung Galaxy S8. The phone has been much talked about in recent months and will be the first major release by the company after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. The device is expected to launch at Mobile World Congress 2017 that will be held in Barcelona.

The Korean promo also suggests a high screen to body ratio and a 4K display. The promo also shows a sharp display and low power consumption.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to come with two different display sizes of 5-inch and 6-inch. The bigger display model is expected to be named as Galaxy S8 Plus.

The device will also retain a 3.5 mm audio jack and is expected to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 6GB RAM. Rumours also suggest that there will be an 8GB RAM also on offer. Samsung might offer the device with their own Exynos processor in India as they have been doing this for the past several years.
