Apart from the 10th anniversary iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S8 is the other most-anticipated smartphone to make a debut this year. Though the Korean giant isn’t launching the flagship device at their MWC launch event but we might be briefed about the launch details for the same.

The interwebs had already been buzzing with speculation that Samsung might take the wraps off Galaxy S8 at an exclusive launch event. But the same was confirmed by the company itself a couple weeks ago. The company said that it won’t be unveiling their flagship device on MWC and the rumor mill hit back with a rumored date and location: March 29 in New York.

However, we won’t have to wait much longer for an official confirmation about the details of the launch event. Samsung’s wireless business director Koh Dong-jin has today confirmed to Korean press officials that Samsung will announce the specifics of the Galaxy S8 launch event on stage at their MWC tablet-focused launch event on February 26. In the official statement (translated from Japanese), Dong-jin said,

Further, there is no debating the fact that Samsung will unveil two variant of its Galaxy S8 smartphone at the exclusive launch event. But, the larger of the two variants will be called ‘Galaxy S8 Plus’ and it has accidentally been confirmed by the Korean giant. Now, we are completely sure of the naming of the upcoming two flagship devices. This development was reported by

This development was first reported by Forbes, who suggests that Samsung made the official S8 Plus support page live on its Samsung India website. The said support page has now been taken down and only redirects us to a blank page on Samsung India’s website. This page didn’t provide us with much information about the device, except for the phone’s model number, SM-G955FD.

In addition, here’s a round-up of all the information we’ve gathered about the Galaxy S8 until date. This flagship device is expected to feature humongous bezel-free displays. The company plans to provide people with a Note 7-like experience in their S series smartphones. Further, it will get rid of the prominent home button and embed the fingerprint sensor under the display. The rumored 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 will be powered by a 3,000mAh battery and the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus variant will be powered by a 3,500 mAh battery pack.

The Korean giant is, however, also accepting the AI-powered voice assistant trend. The Galaxy S8 is expected to include Bixby, a new voice assistant powered by its recent Viv acquisition. There have recently also been rumors that Samsung is adding a dedicated button to activate the assistant.
