    It's the last big press conference for today but it is probably the most important one. Samsung is expected to make some big announcements in a few moments and reliable sources have confirmed that the Korean giant will announce the Galaxy Tab S3 which could be answer to Apple's iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface Pro 4. The Tab S3 will be a flagship tablet with a keyboard cover, just like its rivals.

    The biggest announcement, hopefully, will be its new flagship smartphone duo, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. While we have quite a fair idea about how the handset will look like, a bunch of sources have said that Samsung might not announce the smartphone at today's event, but might just give a peek at the device. It could host a special 'Unpacked' event in March and make the smartphone available in April.

    That's not all, Samsung has another announcement on 28 February as it has partnered with Reliance Jio. We are not quite sure what the announcement will be, but it could be big.

    Stay tuned as we will be bringing all the action from today's press conference right here. The event will begin at 11.00PM IST...
