If you are anything like us, you may have been watching Samsung’s MWC press event just to get a possible peek at what the company is planning for the Galaxy S8. Well, the teaser has hit the web, and we now have an official date for when we’ll see the entire thing.
Well, there’s good news and bad news. It’ll be a little while before we get an official glimpse of the device, but a 30-second teaser video shown during the company’s press conference at Mobile World Congress Sunday suggests we won’t have to wait very long.
But just because Samsung’s not ready to talk official S8 details yet doesn’t mean we don’t already have an idea of what to expect.
Thanks to leaks, we know the Galaxy S8 will come in two models: a 5.8-inch base phone and a 6.2-inch “S8+”. The displays will dominate the front, and they’ll sport Samsung’s signature curved edges — two motifs that are echoed in the teaser video.

We’re also looking at phones with the latest Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage with memory card expansion.
The S8 phones are also supposed to have water and dust resistance, larger batteries than the S7/S7 Edge, a fingerprint sensor that’s moved to the backside, an iris scanner, wireless charging with a USB-C port, a headphone jack and an improved 12-megapixel camera on the back and 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
