Samsung Galaxy S8 launch date confirmed for March 29 in both London and New York

There will be two Unpacked events for the launch of… whatever phone it is, happening in both London and New York as full launches, not satellites of one or the other.

Samsung’s not announcing the Galaxy S8 at Mobile World Congress 2017, but it is showing a teaser, which reveals that the actual announcement date will be March 29.

OK, so technically the Samsung Galaxy S8 isn’t named in the teaser, but it can hardly be anything else. Sources already revealed that Samsung would be showing off a video teaser, and given the implication in the video that whatever handset it is will completely redefine what makes a phone, it could hardly be anything else.

Plus that date lines up with rumors. So yeah, March 29 is the date to mark. Invites for the event have also been sent out, revealing that it will take place in New York and London.

All screen, all the time

Leaked ahead of time by @Faryaab on Twitter, the teaser shows little else sadly, with no picture of the S8 and no real information on what it will offer. Although near the end there is the outline of what might be the phone, showing an all-screen design, with no buttons on the front and just tiny bezels above and below the display.

The bezels curve too, suggesting the screen might be curved, all of which has been heavily rumored. It’s possible then that Samsung is simply referring to the screen as what makes the Galaxy S8 stand out, given that all the pictures in the teaser of other phones show ones with large bezels and home buttons.

With March 29 just a month away we’ll know for sure soon and in the meantime we’ll keep you updated with all the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus news and rumors as they emerge.
