The avalanche of Galaxy S8 content is pretty much out of control at this point. We’ve had rumors, leaks, live shots and renders, specs sheets and benchmarks, you name it. Even the occasional video. Now, you can add one more clip to the list, a pretty daring one, to say the least.
Apparently, we have now reached a saturation point so odd that the relative size comparison footage, we have for you today, is not only of immaculate quality and not shot in an alley somewhere, but it actually looks like a proper review, more than anything else.
Apparently, quite a few Chinese manufacturers are already distributing dummy S8 and S8+ units, which is what the YouTube clip features. In it, you can see the plasticky molds next to the Galaxy S7 edge, Honor V9 (or Honor 8 Pro) and the iPhone 7 pair.
Setting aside the obviously dodgy quality, the dummies do seem to be precisely made in terms of dimensions. Thus, making them perfect for appreciating the great use of space Samsung has managed to achieve by practically getting rid of most bezels and opting for an unusual 18.5:9 aspect ratio. This is how the Galaxy S8+ manages a footprint practically identical to that of an iPhone 7 Plus, while rocking a whopping 0.7 inches of extra screen.
Overall, nothing we didn’t already know from the sea of previous leaks, but a few well-made glamour shots are always welcome to switch things up a bit in the rumor mill.
