A leakster by the name @Ricciolo1 has posted on Twitter details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8.

According to him, Samsung’s new flagship will be privately unveiled at this year’s edition of Mobile World Congress. Then it will be introduced on the 29th of March and a main launch will come almost a month later. The tweet doesn’t end there as he also mentions that the phone will have a starting price of $849.

While @Ricciolo1’s tweet might have dates similar to earlier rumors, we still advise that you take it with a pinch of salt.
