The next Galaxy - Wed 29th March

 

 

As many of you know, Samsung will be holding one of their 'Unpacked' events today, 29th March where they will unveil the next Galaxy. But what will it be? What will we see? Check out some rumours we've seen from other tech sites here.

What we can tell you is that we'll be in attendance at the event to find out everything we can about it. We'll be posting live updates from the O2 Twitter and O2UK Snapchat accounts which is where you'll get first looks at official new features or specs. We'll also keep you all updated here on the O2 Community as and when we know more.

So, what do you think will be unveilved? Any interesting specs or features you're expecting or hoping to see? Let us know if there's anything particular about the device you want to know about and we'll do our best to find out for you.

Re: The next Galaxy - Wed 29th March

I am not getting technical @Chris_K (God forbid) Smiley Very Happy...I just think the S8 has to be the best Samsung have ever produced as they are going to be under so much scrutiny after the Note 7 fiasco. 

I wont be getting one as I am perfectly happy with my Note 4......but I'm hoping this S8 astounds us all with some superlative features. Smiley Tongue

Oops!!

All sounds pretty good to me though Smiley Happy Just a shame it rather spoils the suspense of the launch event!

 

Not sure it would win me over from Huawei (I'm loving the Leica partnership too much Smiley Happy ) but some cracking advancements which have certainly got my attention. 

I work for O2, however any advice or opinion given in this community should be considered my own and not necessarily representative of Telefónica UK Limited.

Re: The next Galaxy - Wed 29th March

I'm very excited to see what they have come up with! Currently using an S6 Edge (which is great) so it will be good to see what the latest handset has to offer Smiley Happy

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+

So it's official Samsung's latest flagship phones are the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

Very little info at this stage but according to the BBC Red Button Technology page the phones' screens are larger and bigger although the phones are smaller than the S7 and S7 Edge.

Also the home button has gone and a virtual assistant introduced. And both models have displays thst curve round the phones' sides. Can't quite picture this but it could be cool.

No more info at the moment. Am waiting to hear from Samsung with more detail as I registered interest on their next smartphone..

I am desperate for a new phone and this could be it - hopefully.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+

Thanks @MI5 I didn't check Welcome News. I've read the blurb and this is definitely going to be my new phone just have to decide between the S8 and S8+. It'll be a question of cost, of course.

Re: The next Galaxy - Wed 29th March

A fair bit cheaper than some other phones too.
