According to Sammobile, the Samsung Galaxy S8 signup page could be officially made available at some point after the announcement.

Besides, many have hinted that the new smartphones could create even a bigger stir in the market this year.

If rumours are to be believed, the Galaxy S8 smartphone will be put on sale by April 21. However, it seems that now Samsung is breaking this tradition, since we won't get to see the Galaxy S8 model on this event.

The Galaxy S8 is also expected to feature an Always-on display mode, which allows the users to check the time, notifications, date, without actually waking up the device.

This is a really interesting teaser as it confirms the theories and validates the leaked images as the phone comes with extremely thin borders on just the top and the bottom.

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. But let's see what other things await us at this congress! The image for the event - which could be a phone or a tablet, really - has the alt tag "Outline of the upper part of the new Galaxy product against a black background". The report says that LG will start pre-registrations for the LG G6 from March 2 to March 9.

Earlier this month, local Korean publication The Bell reported that Samsung upped its initial production of the S8 by nearly 40 percent compared to what they did with its predecessor, the Galaxy S7. It will have a 64GB internal storage option, which will be expandable up to 256GB using a microSD card.

The flagship phablet smartphone is also expected to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and paired with a huge 6 GB of RAM. The standard-sized Galaxy S8 might have less RAM than the high-end Galaxy S8 Plus. Like other recent Samsung phones, it'll be IP68 dust and water-resistant and will feature wireless charging.

It will also be the first smartphone to feature Samsung's voice assistant Bixby and will run on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.
