[Update: Another teaser] Galaxy S8 launch date officially confirmed, Samsung offers a glimpse

There has been a lot of speculation about the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus over the past few weeks. The new flagship was expected to be unveiled at MWC 2017 like its predecessors but Samsung confirmed not too long ago that it wasn’t going to launch the Galaxy S8 in Barcelona this year. This has led to rumors about the new flagship’s launch date but Samsung did say a couple of weeks back that it would confirm the Galaxy S8 launch date at MWC 2017. It has followed through on that promise.

Samsung has confirmed today that the Galaxy S8 launch date is March 29 and that the special event for its new flagship is going to take place in New York City and London. As expected, Samsung also offered a glimpse of the Galaxy S8 at its MWC 2017 press conference today to get us all excited about the flagship.

The short teaser basically takes us through the history of the cellphone starting from the 1980s which had those really big cellphones with antennas to the flip phone era of the 1990s leading up to 2017 which Samsung subtly suggests will be led by the Galaxy S8. The teaser does confirm our suspicions that the Galaxy S8 will have an impressive display-to-body ratio and no physical home button.

Mark your calendars for March 29 because that’s when Samsung is going to officially launch the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus. It goes without saying that we will continue to see leaks and rumors in the days leading up to the launch event.

Update: Here’s a longer, more revealing teaser for the Galaxy S8.

Love the edge feature, I put a slim case on and have 0 issue with touch. I’ll own at least the S8+ but I’m also looking at the LG G6 as a backup phone.

I wouldn’t be promoting the edge display as a good thing or some amazing innovation. There are still a vast majority of Sammy fans, like myself, who can’t stand the ridiculous edge displays and their known faults. It’s the reason I got rid of the S7e and Note 7, within 2 weeks. Glare, image distortion and finger recognition at the curve, are well known defects of the edge display. The Note 7 had the exact same usable screen width as the S4. True story. It’s a shame they aren’t making flat displays anymore, on their flagships. A screen that bends… Read more »

Oh make no mistake…I’ll be getting the S8+ 😉 I’m a tech freak who’s also a glutton for punishment.

Just depends how long I have it before it drives me crazy again 🙂

I’ve owned every Sammy flagship since the S2. Just saddened to see Sammy go in this direction.

The edge display is one reason why T-mobiles Jump on Demand is so nice to have 🙂

You do realise you get glare on every display, because you know. GLASS! There’s is no distortion. I can’t see any on my edge+ it glides over the edges, yeah and the reason edge panels is not on a flat display is because the indicator for it would be very noticeable on a flat display that many users would not like. On the edge, I don’t notice at all unless I want to use it. It is the ONLY thing that is on the “edge” everything I use and see fits within the screen of the phone. Unless scrolling left/right… Read more »

Well get an LG G6 and stop whining no one forced you to buy the S7e or note 7 either you want a Samsung flagship or not. You are not the majority Samsung’s market analysis proves otherwise else they would have stopped making curved screens if people did not like them. I have not seen the glare you are talking about when using the S7e.
