Latest Rumors Suggest No Early Launch For Samsung Galaxy S8
Despite Samsung's problems with the Galaxy Note 7 recall and previous speculations about an early launch of the Galaxy S8, the highly anticipated device will not launch until at least early next year.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date
The online publication Trusted Reviews reports that a well-known tipster has leaked new information about Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone. The tipster has posted on Twitter an event teaser for the announcement of the Galaxy S8, giving a major clue as to the phone's release date. According to Ricciolo, the next flagship smartphone from Samsung will be announced on Sunday, Feb. 26.
The leaker has added that the graphic is "preview," but the text is "final." The information could be pretty convincing, as Samsung is known to usually schedule the launch of its Galaxy S-series mobile devices each year the day before Barcelona's Mobile World Congress technology conference begins. The 2017 edition of Barcelona's MWC is scheduled to start on Feb. 27, so the proposed release date for the Galaxy S8 would indeed fall on the Sunday prior to the event.
According to CNET, there were some previous rumors claiming that Samsung is planning this year a much earlier Galaxy S8 launch, in order to cover some of the losses due to the company's recent global Galaxy Note 7 recall. The South Korean company will launch the new phone prior to February.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Rumored Features
Tech experts expect that Samsung's Galaxy S8 will implement some major design changes over this year's Galaxy S7. Among these features, updates might be included the abandonment of the home button and headphone jack. There are also speculations claiming that the upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone will come with a 4K Ultra high-definition screen able to provide a resolution of 3,840x2,160 pixels.
If the speculations are right to the point, that resolution would be greater than most smartphones on the market are offering now. However, this might be also more than most users would need on a mobile phone. The only requirement for such a high resolution would come if Samsung plans to support virtual reality content on the Galaxy S8.
