LG is about to launch an exciting new Android phone, a device that’s going to compete directly against Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Apple’s iPhone 8.

Although, Samsung is said to unveil a Galaxy Tab at the event, it is expected to share some information about its flagship smartphone, which could only be the “release date” of it. But that doesn’t mean the Galaxy S8 will be ignored. Nevertheless, there have been rumors that Samsung may showcase a one-minute teaser of the Galaxy S8 at the event.

The 2016 version of the Galaxy J5 came with a 5.2 inch HD display and we are expecting something similar for the new model.

Although we’ve heard plenty of rumors about the Galaxy S8 Plus and its smaller S8 sibling, this would be the first time that Samsung acknowledged the S8 Plus device by name.

Of the three smartphones, the Galaxy J3 will feature basic specs and there are reports suggesting that this one might arrive with a Snapdragon 430 processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB native memory capacity. Yup, there still won’t be a Galaxy S8 but it may be shown off privately. The company can’t afford to repeat the mistakes it made with the Galaxy Note7, especially with the Galaxy S8 series, which will most likely include its most popular devices in 2017. The firm is widely expected to unveil the phone at an event in NY on March 29 followed by an April 21 release. The Samsung Galaxy X might have the same camera as the Galaxy S8 combining a 12-megapixel sensor with a 13-megapixel secondary sensor that will create a better depth of field in photos. Speaking about scanners, the fingerprint scanner could possibly be placed at the back right beside the rear camera.

The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are not official yet, but Samsung India has already launched what looks like a support page for the larger smartphone. While the Android 7.0 Nougat update is finally here for the flagship devices with exciting new features, not everything is picture ideal.
