Samsung's highly anticipated flagship smartphone of 2017, the Galaxy S8, has been rumored to be released at some point in April. Although there are plenty of rumors and much speculation surrounding the Galaxy S8 on the Internet, Samsung has remained rather quiet and secretive about it. Now, a promotional #poster for the 2017 flagship phone is making the rounds on Twitter, and it seems to provide an official #Release Date.
Poster confirms rumored release date
Various sources on the Internet have claimed that the Galaxy S8 is set to be released on April 21, 2017. Furthermore, the device is expected to be up for pre-order on either April 7 or April 10. A Twitter user by the name of Ice Universe has now uploaded a photo of a #samsung galaxy s8 promotional poster. The poster itself is rather plain and does not offer a lot of insight, but it does feature a release date, which is set to be in April. Here's the tweet:

So, even though the poster does not provide a specific day, it does confirm the rumored release date. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is also expected to hit stores at the same time. Furthermore, the poster depicts the edge-to-edge design of the mobile device, something plenty of sources have predicted with their leaks. And while there's no specific mention of the Galaxy S8, the gigantic S in the center of the poster clearly refers to the 2017 flagship phone.
Samsung will make their official announcement at the end of March
The South Korean tech-giant will officially launch their latest flagship model on March 29, 2017 at an event in New York. Samsung has already sent invitations to the press, so fans and potential buyers can look forward to the media coverage around the announcement. The design of the Galaxy S8 as well as its wide array of features will be unveiled for the first time. In the meantime, we'll just have to wait and see which of the leaked features and specifications turn out to be true. Let's just hope Samsung avoids another major debacle with its first major product since the release of the Galaxy Note 7.
