Galaxy S8 Delayed Amid Samsung's Note 7 Investigation
Phone maker giant Samsung Electronics Co. has delayed the development of the Galaxy S8 by two weeks, in order to have more time to investigate the cause of the Galaxy Note 7 fire, which has become the worst nightmare of the South Korean company since it was decided to recall the mobile device.
Delaying The Galaxy S8 Could Be A Humiliation
For many analysts, this situation might represent a huge humiliation for Samsung, considering that what happened with the Note 7 has been so disastrous that the biggest objective should be to avoid any kind of links between this model and the Galaxy S8, so this phone could be launched to the market without the users´ prejudge that it could also explode. In fact, it was rumored that the new model could be released faster than expected, but this decision buries the possibilities of this to happen.
According to Tech Radar, the Note 7 fiasco may have cost to the company $1 billion, and this new situation will definitely have a consequence on when the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge are launched, but it is unclear if it will push back the announcement, which was expected to come just before the Mobile World Congress, which runs from February 27 next year.
The Cause Could Have Been Known
The most incredible detail about this issue is that the cause of the Note 7 fire could have been known if Samsung hadn't rush to launch its own recall a second time without reportedly waiting for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission´s formal process. In fact, this agency will investigate if the phone maker company notified about the risk posed by the phone, as reported by the International Business Times.
Giving this whole picture, it seems that the Galaxy S8 is not the only thing that is delayed, but also the Samsung´s chances to recover the users' trust, since this is probably the most important element that the Note 7 fiasco has damaged. Meanwhile, many other phone makers companies are looking to taking advantage of Samsung´s fall.
