There seems to be a lot of confusion about the Samsung Galaxy S8 release date. At first, reports stated that the next flagship smartphone from Samsung will arrive in the last week of February, before the start of the 2017 Mobile World Congress (MWC).
Samsung usually announces its S series smartphone a day before the start of MWC. However, because this year was not very good for Samsung, there have been reports that the company may announce the device earlier.
An earlier release may help Samsung get back some of the losses that the Galaxy Note 7 brought. Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Samsung could actually postpone the Galaxy S8 release date to April.
Now, according to Business Korea, the Galaxy S8 will see an announcement in February, before the start of Mobile World Congress.
What Is Samsung Up to?
It is a known fact that Samsung is not in a very good state at the moment. After the Note 7 recall, the bad publicity and now the Samsung washing machine being recalled. The South Korean company has not had a very good year.
Therefore, it is possible that Samsung does not want to hurry with the launch of the Galaxy S8 just to make up losses. What if something goes wrong again? After all, the company just apologized to its users. Samsung probably wants to make a good comeback and release a solid product, instead of rushing things, which might be a good idea.
Galaxy S8 Release Date
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will most likely be announced on Feb 26, before the start of MWC 2017. But first, the company has to gain back its customers trust and figure out what exactly caused the Note 7 battery issue. What good is a smartphone with the best features and hardware, that is not safe to use.
