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


Last updated: February 26th, 2017 at 21:19 UTC+02:00

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.
