Samsung Will Officially Reveal The Galaxy S8 Next Month
There's been a lot of talk building up to the release of the Samsung Galaxy S8, the next, biggest, and baddest of the tech giant's flagship smartphones. Samsung has made an unsurprisingly-slim showing at this year's Mobile World Congress so far, but that hasn't stopped the company from revealing the date everyone can expect to get their first look at the Galaxy S8: the phone will make its formal debut in New York on March 29.
In an apparent effort to keep the hype running hot, Samsung have provided the above teaser image, which definitely leaves plenty to the imagination, as well as a new teaser video, punctuated by a rather simple statement of fact: "This is a phone." Such news will not be surprising to most, but after the disastrous fate of the Galaxy Note 7, perhaps it's best that Samsung went all the way back to the basics with the S8 — to say nothing of finding a new battery supplier.
There aren't any official specs out for the phone just yet, though the teaser video does seem to allude to various unconfirmed reports of slim bezels and a rounded display. Rumors suggest a slew of imaginative features, including a digital assistant named Bixby and a dock that turns the phone into a desktop device. As for the guts, leaks point to the phone sporting a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, and either a 5.8- or 6.2-inch display. That's all off-the-record, though, so Samsung fans looking for the proper scoop will simply have to wait until March 29.
