It’s official: Samsung will reveal the Galaxy S8 on March 29.
Samsung usually announces the Galaxy line at Mobile World Congress but delayed the move this year, likely in an effort to make sure its new flagship doesn’t meet the same fate as the Galaxy Note 8. This year the company just slyly dropped the date when the S8 will be revealed.
The reveal came in the form of an image, which you can see below. The image shows the outline with a phone small white bezels. Its tagline reads “unbox your phone.” The outline lines up with all the leaks we’ve seen, suggesting that the front home button will be axed. There have been tons of leaks of the phone over the past few weeks, including the full spec list, but now we have a concrete date.
What we know so far
The Galaxy S8 should go on sale in April. It’s expected to feature a Snapdragon 835 processor, a 5.8-inch QHD OLED display, 4GB of RAM and a 12MP Dual Pixel camera. Samsung is also expected to announced a Galaxy S8 Plus variant, but that just speculation at this point. Check out the teaser and some leaked images below.
