Samsung has been speculated to be working on a foldable smartphone for quite a few years now and rumor has it that it may finally unveil the handset at the MWC. Although previous rumors already included the specs that Blass mentioned, it gives more credibility to them.

With the Galaxy S8, the Korean tech giant hopes to bounce back from the losses they incurred from the debacle caused by the Galaxy Note 7, which were recalled due to reported incidents of overheating and explosions. It will be a special announcement in NY before the commercial release beginning April 21 in select key markets worldwide.

The teaser also comes with the words "Unbox your phone" and "Sign up to be among the first to know about the Next Galaxy". Called "Book Settings", the app is clearly made for yet unannounced Samsung Galaxy Book Windows 10 device. But let's see what other things await us at this congress! The S3 is very similar in design to its predecessor, albeit with some expected spec bumps like Snapdragon 820 and AMOLED display, while the Windows-laden Books try to fit into Intel's 7th-gen Kaby Lake processor era. This would go along with the model numbers for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus which are the SM-G950 and SM-G955.

LG G6 is expected to grab the visitors attention with its high-end specifications.

Samsung is yet to reveal the prices of the new Galaxy Book family, it also isn't clear when the company plans on releasing the new devices. It will also have a 64GB internal memory that would support external microSD cards. As for the RAM, you will get up to 8GB of RAM in both the Galaxy Book 10 and the Galaxy Book 12. Like other recent Samsung phones, it'll be IP68 dust and water-resistant and will feature wireless charging. MySmartPrice also reports that the tablet will feature four AKG-tuned loudspeakers (two at top and two at bottom of the device when held upright). With this, patrons of Samsung are anticipating that the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will take the center stage.
