While the Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be making its debut at their 2017 Mobile World Congress press event that the company announced yesterday, it seems it will be getting a teaser.

In their report on the MWC press announcement, the Korea Herald dropped a nugget regarding the Galaxy S8 advising that Samsung will be showing a 1-minute long ‘teaser’ video for the phone. The Galaxy S8 is expected to be announced in a standalone event in late March in New York, with the phone going on-sale around the world in April.

The focus of the MWC event is likely to be the premium Galaxy Tab S3, which has been leaking more and more in the lead-up to the launch. Android tablets are becoming less enticing to consumers with 2-in-1 format Chromebooks, including Samsungs recently announced Chromebook Plus and Pro models taking the focus. Nevertheless, there’s still a market for tablets and Samsung will exploit it.

Love it or hate it, the Galaxy S8 is probably one of the bigger announcements that will come in the first half of the year and there will be a lot of interest in any teaser that Samsung drops during the event. But with leaks for the phone coming thick and fast, it remains to be seen whether there will be anything left to announce when they finally unveil it.

Hah, the Galaxy S has become my iPhone: I don’t want one, but I can’t help but be interested in it.
