New Samsung Galaxy S8 print teaser surfaces

This morning, Samsung revealed a new teaser for the Samsung Galaxy S8 in the form of a poster. In Korean, the poster reads "Completion and a New Start," perhaps making a statement about last year's issues with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The image on the teaser shows a person standing next to a smartphone shaped door. Outer Space beckons through the portal, with various planets and meteors making it through the door.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ should be unveiled on March 29th in New York City (which is March 30th in Korea thanks to the time difference). Pre-orders should take place between April 7th and April 17th. Analysts who spend most of their waking hours thinking about things like sales and profit margins, expect the number of Samsung Galaxy S8 units reserved to top the 400,000 that were set aside for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ should launch on April 28th.

Also this morning, a television ad that uses a similar image as the accompanying teaser was aired in South Korea. The images seem to indicate that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be offering some improved VR capabilities.

As always GREAT innovation by Samsung. Samsung is king. Light years ahead of Apple. No phone stands a chance to the Galaxy series. Even my S2 is better than the iPhone 7. :)

S2 better than an iPhone 7? You know damn well it's not. As an Android user, getting really sick of other Android fans always needing to bash Apple.

It makes up for the isheep bashing Samsung and other Android companies

Agreed Creep 100%... I wouldn't mind bashing if it was backed up with actual objective statistics/facts but 98% of the time it's just mindless annoying misinformed bashing to Apple. Like /yawn,

You dont deal with facts. I factual;ly showed you that you can thumb up your own posts. And you said I didnt show you nothing. You made a decision to ignore a fact because it didnt agree with what you claimed, because you simply had no idea. You're like a person who doesn't believe in God. Even though there are millions of facts to show otherwise, you all still make an ignorant choice not to believe. 1+1=2 even if the answer isnt what you like, it is still a fact! You are a loser anyways...because you dont believe fact even when directly pointed out to you. You rather believe some mindless drivel. Much like most fans/trolls in general. This isnt' about any particular OEM. Its about how facts are not important to you trolls, unless it is a fact that matters to you when its in your favor. Sorry, all facts cant be what you want them to be. FAVORABLE!

Get the F off my nuts you grown petulant baby. That bug is recent and was not there all this time because you used to never be able to upvote yourself on mobile site until fairly recently. I never ignored anything, I actually admitted I was wrong because that's what a decent man does. But you never can admit your wrong after many PA users including myself have debunked the nonsense you write everyday countless times, this is why your so angry You are a grown man who acts like a 13 year old on PA with your biased shill fanboy ranting writing your insecure diabtribes everyday of your life on a phone website saying why the products you own are the best and how everyone else is inferior and stupid because so. You are a truly unique moron, you care so much about green little thumbs on a phone website Creep's comment applies perfectly to you, which is why your so triggered right now. Insecure techie aw...

You used to be able to"upvote your self" on mobile but it would disappear right away after refreshing the page, but now it stays, it's a fairly recently introduced bug to the website so yeah sorry for me not being up to date on liking my own comments and being so concerned with green little thumbs on a phone website like you are. You are almost 50 and act like a 13 year old experiencing testeorone and extreme hormanal production in your blood stream for the first time, your emotional, you cry over nonsense and say stupid sh*t all the time.

Sorry, all facts cant be what you want them to be. FAVORABLE!" How ironic lmao.............. Sorry dude but everyone here on PA doesn't read your nonsense diatribes nor do they take you seriously because you spew literal feces out of your mouth onto your keyboard You have been debunked by me so many times in the past I can't even count, alongside with many other PA posters yet you are still typing the same paragraphs you wrote years ago on PA, repeat repeat repeat!

Look, i like Samsung more than apple and I'm gonna get the galaxy s8 plus but the iPhone 8 this year will give Samsung a really tough competition

If it actually comes out. I have a feeling these analysts are just blowing their load and Apple is sticking to the tried and true 7s with fat bezels and an OLED. Apple just wouldn't go bezeless or with AR. They never use technology in its infancy. It's just totally out of character. This is like that sapphire glass crap that the 6s was sure to get all over again. The iPhone 8 will either come out next year or won't come close to the GS8. Mark my words. You will see that I am right in September or October.

The whole thing is about optimization and apple is great in this no one come closer on this. Not go on hardware counts, it is the optimization which matters and give customer far superior satisfaction. Ask any Samsung user after 6 month of usage you will know that also customer service of apple is far superior than any company in the world

I've been looking forward to the S8 since my Note 7 was returned, but I dipped my feet in the Apple pool recently. Haven't had an iphone since the 5S, but purchased an iPhone 7 Plus to give it another try. IMHO the iPhone is a solid device but I can't get past the software anymore. It was faster than I expected, but android flagship devices since the Note 5 have been pretty much on par with speed. Needless to say I went back into my Note 5 and I'm eagerly awaiting the new S8. I'll be a pre-order for sure.

Yup. I took out my sim from my iPhone 7 work phone, popped it in my GS6. I couldn't believe how much better it was. I don't get these iOS tards at all.

Hahahahahahahahahahaha.....seriously! Come on Samsung fans be realistic, you know damn well it won't have great sale numbers. If they have those expected sale numbers I will stop posting and bashing Samsung here in PA.

I have a question. Have you ever sold 1M of anything? Nope, because if you did, you'd be rich and hardly on a site like this. I woudl say, any company that can sell 1M of anything is a great sales number. After all do the math. One phone that costs $650 and sold 1M times is $650M and even if you worked 650 lifetimes, you'd never make that much money. The average person who works from age 16 - 65 will in general make less than $1M Stop acting ignorant. Its sad to purposely act ignorant when you know better.

Here is one thing though...your favorite OEM, no matter who it is, won't sell 300M phones in 2017. But I bet Samsung will. Oh and with all the pent up demand from the Note 7, Samsung between the 2 phones will sell well over 100M combined
