We already know that Samsung will not be announcing their S-series flagship at the MWC 2017. The company previously has used the MWC platform to unveil their latest to showcase their latest S-series flagship smartphones. After the Galaxy Note 7 disaster which led to the discontinuation of the device, the Korean tech giant decided to take its time with the next flagship, so the same issues will not occur again. This does not mean that Samsung will be missing the MWC show this year, instead they will be unveiling their new tablet Galaxy Tab S3 on 26th February.
Now a new report by The Korea Economic Daily, Samsung will announce the official launch dates for Galaxy S8 at the MWC. This announcement is expected to take place on 27 February, the day MWC officially kicks off.
Earlier it was expected that Samsung will be unveiling Galaxy S8 on 29 March in dedicated events held in New York and Europe. Now the company will officially announce whether they are going with this date or do they have something else in mind.
Samsung will be launching two variants: Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, both the devices will have a dual curved display and in will vary in display size. Galaxy S8 and S8+ will feature a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch display respectively. Under the hood, the devices will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, making it the first flagship to have this SoC onboard. Along with that Samsung will be introducing its own smart AI-assistant Bixby. Galaxy S8 could very well turn out to be Samsung’s saving grace but they have to ensure that their latest flagship does not crash and burn.
