Samsung, the largest smartphone manufacturer from Korea, typically announces new phones at the end of February, but its mobile president confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S8 won’t be announced at MWC 2017 – well, not announced in full at least.

The launch date of the flagship from Samsung is getting even closer and now it appears we know even more about it. The official launch date may happen a little more than one month later, with the newest believable leaks saying it’ll be a March 29 launch event in New York that outs the new Samsung phone.

Although it is still unknown when the pre-booking of Samsung Galaxy S8 will start but the actual Galaxy S8 release date in stores is expected to be April 21.

The spec sheet revealed so far reports that the standard S8 will include a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, 12 megapixel camera rear camera and 8 megapixel front-facing snapper.

This device will also feature an iris scanner, waterproof design and 64GB of expandable memory. Wireless charging, Samsung Pay and security via Samsung’s Knox will also be included. If the leak is true, it appears that alongside the S8, Samsung will also unveil another new device called the S8+.

The video below covers all the news and rumors at one place.

Galaxy S8 is one of the highly anticipated smartphones of 2017 which has got everyone in the tech community wrapped around in a bunch of rumors. In January, videos by Samsung Display, a subsidiary of the Korean Tech giant got us all in the whirlwind as the phone resembled the specs of the oncoming smartphone.

After the fall of Galaxy Note 7, Samsung really needs a big win to earn back the trust of its users.
