Ever since their recent mishap with the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung has been in the spotlight as the world waits for a new flagship by the company. With the rumour mill churning everyday on leaked specifications and speculations of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8, a tipster who goes by the name of @Ricciolo1 has tweeted some exciting details about the smartphone.



According to the tweet, we can expect to get a glimpse of the next flagship iteration in MWC 2017 being held from February 27 in Barcelona but, it might not be officially unveiled until March 29. Furthermore, the tweet says that the Galaxy S8 will be available to general public by April end which corresponds with earlier reports on the production estimate of the smartphone.

According to China’s ETNews, Samsung plans on having 10 million units ready before the shipping begins. It should be noted here that more than 10 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S7 were sold in the first month itself. This also shows the faith Samsung has in their new flagship. It is also said that the South Korean giant is targeting a sale figure of 60 million units for the Galaxy S8.

The tweet by @Ricciolo1 also tips off the price of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 as “849” which we are assuming to be $849 (approx Rs 57,770).

Samsung Galaxy S8 is presumed to feature a 5.7-inch Quad-HD, Gorilla Glass 5 protected Super AMOLED display which can be powered by an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 along with an 8GB RAM. The rear camera on the Galaxy S8 can have a 12-megapixel sensor while that on the front could be an 8-megapixel snapper.

Samsung will also debut its own personal voice assistant, ‘Bixby’ when it releases the Galaxy S8. The company is also expected to make some huge design changes for their next flagship as it is being suggested to feature thin bezels, curved edge display , fingerprint sensor below the display and ditch the classic home button.

The frequency of rumours will keep increasing until Samsung takes the plunge and launches the Galaxy S8.
