Samsung skipped this year’s Mobile World Congress when it comes to launching their next flagship device, however, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus has been under the rumour scrutiny almost every day.

What else?
Samsung is expected to bring in its own AI-powered personal assistant, named Bixby, which probably will compete for head to head with the likes of Google Assistant, Apple’s Siri and even Microsoft’s Cortana. Similar to Google Assistant, Samsung is expected to deeply integrate the personal assistant to the OS which will help learn things faster.

Meanwhile, Samsung is likely to put the fingerprint scanner at the back of the devices just adjacent to the camera sensor which is not the best position to place a fingerprint scanner, if you ask us. Further, the display on both the S8 and S8 Plus will be curved around the side edges making it a bezel-less display at least from both sides. On the other hand, the top and bottom chins are extremely thin as well which resultingly forced Samsung to push On-Screen buttons for the S8 and S8 Plus. Surprisingly we will get a 3.5 mm headphone jack even though most of the OEMs are choosing the other path at the moment.

Moreover, a new image leak reveals the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus kept side by side to the deceased Galaxy Note 7. While the regular Galaxy S8 appears to be much smaller than Note 7 despite coming in with a 5.8-inch display, the Galaxy S8 Plus stands slightly taller with a massive 6.2-inch display. To compare, last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had a 5.7-inch display up front.

Release Date and Price
At its Galaxy Tab S3 launch event during the Mobile World Congress, Samsung announced that it will unveil the S8 on March 29th at its Unpacked event in New York. On the other hand, the release date was earlier scheduled for April 21st which has not been reportedly postponed to April 28th with no major reason in particular.

As far as price goes, we don’t have much information, as of now although we expect Samsung to price the device in the premium price bracket.
