The Samsung Galaxy S8 could go down in history as the worst kept secret in mobile handset launches! There is only very little we don’t know about Samsung’s latest flagship, and with the launch, we expect few surprises. Tease yourself a bit before it gets officially unpacked and read the latest news and rumours about the 2017 Samsung Galaxy S8 UK release date, price, features and specifications.
The details have been leaked piece by piece over the past few months. We think we know everything there is to know about the Samsung S8, and we will tell you everything we know as well. However, today (the 29 of March) Samsung is holding their live event (the link to the live stream at the bottom of this page). More quickly you can find it on our Facebook page and Twitter.
The Unpacked event is going to be held in New York and London on Wednesday the 29th of March and in Korea on the 30th of March. If you are lucky enough to have access to an invitation code, you can download the Unpacked App from the Google Play store. But we will be sharing the event and providing commentary on the event that starts at 4pm GMT.
We have covered all the leaks in one of our previous articles, including the much anticipated Bixby personal assistant which has all but been confirmed by the Korean brand, but there have been additional leaks and information since we last shared the article such as the full palette of colours that the new Samsung will be available in.

Whether the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be a success remains to be seen, Samsung have had to deal with a fair bit of criticism since the Note 7 fiasco and brand confidence is lower than it has ever been. This time it has a lot more to prove and the expectations are going to be set higher than they have ever been before.
The release date hasn’t officially been confirmed, but it is rumoured to be on pre-order from April 10th and potentially going to land in stores on April 21st.
Where to watch
The event is going to be live streamed on the Samsung website and you will be able to find it there.
