Know Why Samsung Galaxy S8 Will Not Be Available Until April Next Year
Samsung was originally expected to announce the Galaxy S8 at an event at Mobile World Congress in February. However, a new report claims the launch has been pushed back to April with a New York-based event.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Battery Problem
Samsung is rumored to be pushing back the release of the Samsung Galaxy S8 until April 2017. Aside from wanting to make sure that its next flagship is as competent a contender as possible, according to TechRadar, Samsung executives allegedly agreed to delay the device in order to better reconstruct confidence in the brand from a marketing perspective. This Samsung Galaxy S8 launch delay could be all about batteries
Back in October, Samsung was reportedly seeking a new battery provider following the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall. And we heard that not only has it potentially found a match in LG Chemical, but an industry source has stated that LG has a strong chance of supplying batteries to smartphones of Samsung. “There is a strong chance that LG will start supplying smartphone batteries to Samsung around the second half of next year.”
Extreme Tech reported that the reason for the alleged delay is simply that Samsung needs more time to get all its ducks in a row before launching a new phone following the Note 7 cancellation. That phone famously had a tendency to catch fire due to a battery fault of some sort. We don’t actually know the cause of the battery fires yet, but Samsung has reportedly identified the cause on its end and is having its investigation verified by regulatory agencies. The report should be made public by year’s end.
