The company pretty much took the year off from Mobile World Congress, where it has traditionally shown off its flagship phone for years now.
But now, after a whole host of leaks, Samsung is finally ready to take the wraps off its latest mobile phone -- and a lot is riding on this one.
It needs to make consumers forget the Galaxy Note 7 debacle as well as keep up with the best that Apple and Google have to offer.
It's a tall order, but based on what we've seen thus far, Samsung may be ready to unveil one of the most interesting smartphones we've seen in years.
Stay tuned here for our liveblog of the day's announcements -- Samsung's Unpacked event kicks off at 11AM ET / 8AM PT, and we'll be covering all the news about the Galaxy S8 as well as any other surprises Samsung has in store for us.
