Samsung is getting ready to troll us with The Next Galaxy (S8?)
Samsung today took to Facebook and Twitter to let us know that "something big is coming tomorrow." Using the hashtag #TheNextGalaxy alongside an image featuring the number 8, Samsung seemingly wants us to believe that it's going to unveil something about a Galaxy S8. The teaser image that the company is showing reminds us of the imagery used to tease the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge (of course, in this case, the number featured in teasers was 7, not 8).

But is Samsung really ready to spill the beans on the Galaxy S8 (which, since the S7 and S7 edge have just hit the market, is probably going to be released in about a year or so)? Well, no, it's almost certainly not ready to do that. The company is likely just trolling us - because, you see, tomorrow is April Fools' Day, a perfect occasion for Samsung to unveil a fictional new Galaxy. Still, we're curious to see what Samsung will show us.

In the past couple of years, on April Fools' Day, Samsung unveiled a smart glove with flexible display, and a Galaxy Blade edge (a smart knife with its own screen). What do you think the company is up to now?

So I guess all the crap and articles regarding the iPhone 7 is a troll as well. Hey, Florin can we please see less crap about the iPhone 7 then. Please, pretty please with sugar on top.

Aw man the sales of the S7 are so low they'll be announcing a new S8 which comes with Android N, O, and P combined (all updates for the next 2 years already installed so people can stop complaining that Samsung Galaxies don't get updates). It'll also come with a removable SSD drive since microSD is just too small and slow, ]and a removable car battery so it'll keep your phone powered until autumn. And the Edge variant with really take that smart knife concept and incorporate a razor sharp blade on the edge. People always ask, why can't a phone make me a sammich, well worth the included gimmicky knife embedded, it can now. It'll also prevent accidental touches on the edge since it'll probably cut your finger tips off.

I would honestly like to see Samsung make a phone with a full front screen with no bezel at all. Kind like the Aquos Crystal, but with no bezel all around. They could use bone conduction technology for the ear piece and put the mic and other things along the side of the phone. Also when they incorporate the new under screen ultrasonic fingerprint reader, this would work great. If anyone can do this kind of phone, Samsung can.

Will never unblock the ads until the writing becomes less cliche and corny. My sister who is a junior in HS writes better than these guys.

Why bother supporting such a bunch of apple fanatics (via ads) when apple already pays them to be bias?

@Hallyu. WOW! Talk about raw envious plain old fashioned hate and destructive grudge... Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of Samsung or any other brand in that matter... But their phones are the nicest looking specially the S7 Edge, the Ferrari (or Ducati) of the smartphone world... Your comment isn't even funny, mate... I find it rather sad to be honest...

How do you know? Samsung hasn't even made the announcement/joke yet. Do you just hate Samsung, so it doesn't matter what they say or do, you are going to hate it? I apologize if you do indeed know what the announcement is for tomorrow, but if so, then please share it with us!
