Samsung will launch its much–anticipated Galaxy S8 smartphone on March 29th, before making it available between April 24th and April 30th.
That’s according to Twitter user @Ricciolo1, known for leaking key information about upcoming smartphones.
His feed also claims that the phone will cost $849 (£699) upfront, although that cost is likely to be slashed if users opt to buy the Galaxy S8 on contract.
Recent reports had suggested Samsung would unveil the phone at next month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. However, now tech watchers are claiming that the Galaxy S8 will be shown off behind closed doors to select media, before its official launch a month later.
The Galaxy S8 is expected to come with a new, bezel–free design, iris-scanning smarts, curved screen and a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display. Samsung is also reportedly planning on ditching the headphone slot from the handset, in a move aimed at taking on Apple’s iPhone 7.
Samsung has much riding on the Galaxy S8, after last year’s Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued due to exploding batteries.
