8:15 Morning all! It's the day we'll finally be seeing what Samsung has been cooking up in its labs, the day when we'll see new phones and accessories.

So what's actually in store for today? Well, here's the major run-down of what we're expecting:

  • The new Samsung Galaxy S8, a mostly-screen powerhouse flagship phone
  • The larger Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, which features a 6.2-inch screen
  • A new Gear VR headset with controller
    We're hoping for an upgraded set of lenses and more comfortable fit to go along with that new handheld remote in the box
  • Some sort of connector to a monitor and mouse, allowing the Galaxy S8 to function as a Chromebook
  • The all-new Galaxy X, a foldable superphone made of graphene sheeting*

*Okay, maybe not the last one.
