While the teaser video doesn't reveal much about the Galaxy S8, Samsung did confirm that its next smartphone will be bundled with a pair of AKG earphones from Harman International.

Samsung Galaxy S8 will be officially unveiled at an event on arch 29 in NY. And regardless of which country you're in, if your device was purchased from a carrier, there's even more uncertainty about when it will be upgraded. Huawei's Emotion UI, for instance, not only allows you to rearrange the navigational strip buttons as you please, but also has a key for pulling down the notification shade. The render shows the front panel of the Galaxy S8 with the display on. Well, it seems that the Galaxy S8 and larger Galaxy S8 Plus devices which have been leaked, sporting curved screens accompanied by virtual navigation buttons that can be rearranged at your whim and fancy. On the display, the battery indicator can be seen along with the time and date mentioned, which interestingly is March 29. Separately, there are two buttons - one of the right and another on the left. The fingerprint reader that used to be in the home button is rumored to be on the back of the Galaxy S8, to the right of its rear camera. But then again, without a full inspection, let alone a confirmation from Samsung, it is hard to take this information as the "true design" of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. The said smartphone was scheduled for a March update in the Samsung roadmap. The article noted that if Samsung were to follow its tradition of releasing their flagship products ahead of iPhone's, which is in September, the public can likely expect a launch in August. Given that the Note 5 was launched in 2015, Samsung is expected to avail the update to Android 7.0 Nougat in the coming days or weeks. The handsets are the first ones from the Samsung camp to come with Dual Pixel camera that has a faster shutter speed and accurate autofocus even in low-light conditions.
