Galaxy S8 Will be Released on 29 March

Samsung confirmed the March 29th date of its upcoming Galaxy S8 announcement at MWC 2017. The VentureBeat reporter and renown leakster, Evan Blass, also released the Galaxy S8 press shot.

The Galaxy S8 press shot shows the confirmed announcement date with an image that looks rather similar to the Galaxy Note 7.

A Pearl Black colour is seen here (appearing similar to the latest Galaxy S7 edge colour), in addition with the sleek form factor that Samsung teased earlier with the Galaxy S8 signup page and “Unbox Your Phone” mantra.



It’s difficult to tell whether the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 or the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus is shown here. The image shows the iris scanner, with the volume rocker on the left, the dedicated Bixby AI button, and the power/standby button on the right side.

The little white screen “slither” right near the power button teases the dual-edge functionality that yields the Edge Panels when swiped from right to left.

Apart from the iris scanner, Bixby button, and dual-edge design with the ultra-thin bezels is also seen here.

Alongside of the 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved Super AMOLED panels, 8MP front/12MP Dual Pixel back camera combo, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 processor, Samsung has mentioned that it aims to bundle a pair of Harman AKG headphones into every Galaxy S8 box – which means that AKG audio is boosting beyond just the freshly-announced Galaxy Tab S3.

Seemingly, Samsung will announce the next Galaxy on 29th March (presumably around 12:23PM, as shown on the device).

Note: Sources claimed that there’s a chance of the image being a fake, since the bottom corners of the screen are not perfectly curved. So just take it with a pinch of salt.
