A new report claims that we might need to wait a little bit longer before we get our hands on the highly-awaited Samsung Galaxy S8. According to a source, the company has pushed back its release by one week, from April 21 to April 28 and that long wait gives the likes of LG, Moto, Huawei and the rest of the chasing pack to gain some grounds and market share from the Android leader.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Released Date Has Been Pushed Back A Week

According to a source, this can't technically be considered a delay since the smartphones haven't actually been unveiled.  However, with all of the leaks and rumors that backed up the April 21st date, it seems likely that Samsung has decided to adjust its release with just weeks to go until the launch event.

The source didn't provide any exact reasoning behind the delay, but the Galaxy Note 7 disaster launch has undoubtedly proven to Samsung that there's no such thing as taking too many precautions. As for the Unpacked event in New York where Samsung is set to launch both the new Galaxy models and also an updated Gear VR headset, it's still set on track for March 29th, despite the delay of the release.
