Rumours indicated that Samsung had plans to tease the launch date of its next flagship smartphone at its Mobile World Congress event in Spain, Barcelona, and that is exactly what occurred.
“On March 29, Samsung Electronics will unveil the newest Galaxy as part of its endeavour to unbox your phone. The forthcoming addition to the Galaxy lineup represents the start of a new era, by reshaping the device that has over the years become an indispensable tool in our everyday lives,” writes Samsung on its ‘Unpacked’ website.
The event will take place in New York at 11:00am ET and will also be live streamed online at samsung.com/galaxy.
The Galaxy S8 is expected to sport a 5.8-inch display and is rumoured to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor. The phone will also likely feature a back-facing fingerprint sensor, headphone jack and 4GB of RAM with a baseline of 64GB storage.
