Samsung's Galaxy S8 will be unveiled in March, invites sent

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S8 on March 29th and will start selling the phone in Korea on April 21st.

The bezels are the only components of design that are shown, but they reveal an terrible lot about the dimensions of the upcoming smartphone.

The news of the foldable smartphone, dubbed the Galaxy X, is yet to receive confirmation from Samsung but there is ample evidence to support the theory that a foldable handset is being developed.

The teaser also comes with the words "Unbox your phone" and "Sign up to be among the first to know about the Next Galaxy".

Samsung has rethought its design in the Tab S series with a more minimalist, industrial style, combining glass and metal for a solid-feeling device.

The keyboard's spacebar doubles as a fingerprint sensor , while the keyboard itself pulls double-duty as a scroll pad. That's by design, says Bruce Walpole, TCL's general manager for the BlackBerry Mobile brand in North America.

Prolific leakster, Evan Blass (@evleaks) on Saturday, 25th February tweeted an image of what looks to be a sign-up page for users to be notified about Galaxy S8 developments.

As far as the rest of the specifications go, it's pretty much business-as-usual for a Samsung flagship. It would have a 12MP dual pixel main camera and an eight-megapixel front-facing camera. Just to recap, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were launched at Euro 700 (roughly Rs. 50,900) and Euro 800 (roughly Rs. 58,100) respectively. There's 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage tipped, plus a microSD card slot to augment that. The Galaxy Tab S3 has been tipped to run Android 7.0 Nougat-based TouchWiz UX and is expected to be powered by a 2.15GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset. However, experts claimed that the S8 Plus has similar overall footprint as the now-discontinued Galaxy Note7.

The Tab S3 features 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display which is capable of playing HDR content and there's a new S Pen for writing and sketching on the screen. With this, patrons of Samsung are anticipating that the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will take the center stage.

The spec sheet also mentioned other key details like the S8 Plus being IP68 dust and water-resistant and Samsung Knox-secured.
