Samsung is about to unveil a bunch of new products, but the two devices the company’s fans want to see most won’t be here. Well, they might be teased in a short video, according to leaks, but Samsung won’t announce the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Barcelona today. The phones were supposed to debut at MWC 2017, reports indicated, but then Samsung had to deal with the Galaxy Note 7 recall and ensuing investigation.
But Samsung still has hot new Android toys to show to the world today. The company’s big press conference from MWC 2017 is about to start, and you can watch live streaming video from the event below.
Samsung’s MWC event will be about tablets, if all the rumors we’ve seen pan out. The Galaxy Tab S3 was already shown in a variety of leaks that preceded the show, and we know it’s going to be a high-end device that will feature S Pen support and will have its own keyboard dock. From the looks of it, this will be Samsung’s answer to the iPad Pro, though competition in the tablet business isn’t what it used to be.
A Samsung Galaxy Book is also in the cards for this Sunday’s MWC announcement, recent reports have suggested. We’re looking at a Windows 10 device, but that’s pretty much all we can tell you right now. The product name was spotted in a Windows 10 app, and we don’t have any photo leaks to show you just yet.
The Galaxy S8 might be the big elephant in the room on Sunday, but that’s exactly why we’re interested in seeing what Samsung has to show for itself at this year’s MWC trade show, considering all of the hot devices we’ve already seen unveiled today.
Samsung’s press conference kicks off at 1:00 PM EST / 10:00 AM PST. You can watch the live stream at this link, and stay tuned for our hands-on coverage of everything announced at the event.
