Here's when Samsung will announce the Galaxy S8

During a press event where the company announced new tablets, Samsung also teased its upcoming smartphone with a press invite.


During Samsung's Mobile World Congress press event on Sunday, February 26, the company published an invitation to a press event scheduled for March 29, where it will announce the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone.

The invite's lone tagline of "unbox your phone," could be a hint that Samsung is going all-in on curved displays, instead of offering one device with a standard, box-like design and another with curved edges as seen the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, respectively.

Samsung's MWC event kicked off with a brief video touting the company's rigorous product testing procedures, and an admission the company has a lot of work to do to regain consumer trust after the Note 7 debacle.

The S8 will be the first smartphone release from Samsung since it recalled nearly 3 million Note 7 smartphones worldwide after two separate battery issues caused some of the devices to catch fire.

Samsung will livestream the Galaxy S8 announcement at at 11am ET on March 29, 2017. ZDNet will have writers on hand to cover the event.
