Samsung will shortly introduce their latest generation flagship smartphones on Apr. 21 this year. Both Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have been redesigned and now offers more features, and also a higher price than its predecessors.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 smartphones at a private event where they also introduced a new portable 360-degree VR camera. The front portion of both the smartphones will have no buttons whatsoever and the fingerprint sensor has now been moved to the back just next to the camera bump.

New reports from The Next Web indicate that a YouTuber has managed to run classic Nintendo titles on the new Galaxy S8 smartphone. He also managed to record the same and upload it to popular video source YouTube. Hence, the S8 makes a perfect emulator to play most Nintendo titles.

Meanwhile, another report, from the Business Insider also listed out all the classic Nintendo Gamecube titles that can be played on the new Galaxy S8 smartphones. " The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Maker", "Super Smash Bros", "Mario Kart: Double Dash" and many other titles will be easily compatible with the latest smartphone.

Reports indicate that the YouTuber managed to make use of a display model of the Galaxy S8 smartphone at a local Target store which can be seen in the video linked below. Apparently, he had to also evade a suspicious store employee while filming himself playing the aforementioned games.   

The Gamecube was Nintendo's competitor towards Xbox and Playstation consoles. At the time of its release, it was one of the most popular purchases likely due to the titles from Nintendo themselves. Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have an octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor on board.

Samsung has secured an exclusive partnership for procuring Snapdragon 835 chipsets from Qualcomm.

The Galaxy S8 smartphones are expected to be the most sold devices after its launch since the popularity of Samsung smartphones hasn't seen a decline even after the debacle of their Note 7 phablet that had to be recalled due to exploding battery issues.
