Aside from the Samsung Galaxy S8, the South Korean giant is hotly tipped to launch another Galaxy S smartphone. This handset is set be called as the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. The Galaxy S8 Plus is lining up alongside the smaller Galaxy S8 device. Both upcoming smartphones are to boast Samsung's sultry curved displays, enhanced cameras, powerful hood and could potentially drop the physical home button which is located in front of the handset.

Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus Launch Date

As reported by TechRadar, the Samsung Galaxy S8 launch date has been previously rumored as March 2 but nothing is confirmed just yet. Koh Dong-jin, Samsung’s president of electronics' mobile communications business department, told the Korean press that he will reveal the launch date of the Samsung Galaxy S8 during the 2017 Mobile World Congress, at least at the end of February. Along with this schedule, all the rumored specs, as well as schedule regarding the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, could also be cleared.

Samsung will have a press conference scheduled for February 26, Sunday. Although many people are expecting the event to be focused on Samsung's tablet products rather than smartphones, rumors now suggest that the firm will show a teaser trailer for the Galaxy S8 at the end, too. There is also a big possibility that Samsung will announce the detailed difference between the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The company seems to feel very confident with its next-generation handsets and is probably planning to almost double its first shipments of the smartphones compared to last year's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge release.

Samsung's Overheating And Battery Issue

According to Trusted Reviews, Google Android N, the software expected to feature on the Samsung Galaxy S8, offers an improvement on the smartphone's battery life. This year, the schedule will be a bit different but all are expecting that Samsung has finally and properly addressed the overheating and battery issue. Hopefully, the Quality Assurance tests, protocols, as well as safety measures of the next flagship smartphones will not have any overheating and battery problems.
