Samsung Galaxy S8 might see the light of the day in April 2017

2016 has been a disappointing year for Samsung, as the South Korean smartphone maker ceased production of its highly-anticipated smartphone, Galaxy Note 7 following reports of replacement models catching fire. Samsung has now turned its attention to the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge in an attempt to attract more customers, while Galaxy S8 is scheduled for next year’s launch.

Samsung Galaxy S8 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated smartphones in the market. The new device serves as Samsung’s shot for redemption next year. Samsung is expected to unveil its next Galaxy S8 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017, which has been used as a platform to unveil the latest Galaxy S – series smartphones over the past few years.


However, according to a report, the Samsung Galaxy S8 might not see the light of day at MWC next year. Instead, Samsung might launch the device at a special event in New York in April. According to tech experts, the idea behind the Galaxy S8 launch delay is that Samsung needs more time to test out their new device prior to the official release to avoid incident, like what we’ve already seen with the Galaxy Note 7 this year.

Besides, it appears that Samsung wants to rebuild customer faith in its brand following Galaxy Note 7 fire scare. According to reports, Samsung has been trying to tighten the security and reduce the risk of Galaxy S8 leaks among the world press prior to its official launch.

Based on what we have heard so far, the new Samsung Galaxy S8 might feature a bezel-less QHD curved display. The Galaxy S8 also comes with an optical fingerprint sensor, water and dust resistance capabilities as well as wireless charging. Under the hood, there might be a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB or 8GB of RAM as well as 64GB or 128GB storage options. The Galaxy S8 is likely to run Android 7.1 Nougat at launch and feature a dual rear camera setup.
