Samsung today sent out invites that released a teaser video confirming that the Galaxy S8 will indeed be launching on March 29. The teaser video ends by hinting at the almost bezel-less front of the Galaxy S8.
Samsung might not be unveiling the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ at MWC this year, but leaks have already revealed almost everything about the two handsets. And today, courtesy of @evleaks, we get to look at the final spec sheet of the Galaxy S8+ as well.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has leaked multiple times in recent weeks, but so far, the handset’s on-screen navigation bar has been camera shy. That changes today, with the leaked images giving us a clear look at the Galaxy S8 from all angles.
Post the Galaxy Note 7 battery fires, Samsung is being overly cautious with the Galaxy S8. It was already revealed that Samsung would be sourcing batteries from Japan’s Murata Manufacturing and Samsung SDI for the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The latter had supplied the company with faulty batteries for the Note 7.
Multiple rumors point to Samsung unveiling the Galaxy S8 on March 29, but there has been no confirmation from Samsung regarding this. Today though, Samsung’s mobile business head Kim Dong-jin confirmed that the company will be announcing the official unveiling date of the Galaxy S8 at MWC.
Despite the smartphone market slowing down and the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, Samsung expects to sell its upcoming flagship — the Galaxy S8 — in record numbers. So, keeping up with its expectations and early consumer interest surrounding the device, Samsung has reportedly almost doubled the first shipments of the Galaxy S8.
With the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus just over a month away from their official unveiling, new reports and rumors surrounding the devices come out almost every day. Today’s report gives clarity on the battery capacity of both handsets.
Just a few hours after detailed 3D renders of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus leaked, a live photo of the Galaxy S8 has leaked online. The leaked photo shows the bottom half of the phone including the impressively thin bottom bezel.
Samsung’s AI-powered virtual assistant, Bixby, is going to be among the key features of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Samsung will be taking on the likes of Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri with Bixby, and the company is leaving no stone unturned in making its virtual assistant is up to the mark.
