Samsung Galaxy S7 did not disappoint us since it came with improvements that not only made it a powerful device but also a stylish one with all round accomplishments in the smartphone market.
But that does not imply all the avenues for improvement have been locked or else we wouldn’t be talking of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8. The current rumor is that the newest member to the S-family will bring new features like AI assistant, upgraded screen, dual-lens camera and much more.
We have gathered all these rumors and news into one article to keep you updated with the latest happenings surrounding Samsung’s expected flagship device.
Galaxy S8 Release Date
Rumors suggest that Samsung will launch its flagship smartphone on 29th March while 21st April is the release date to stores.
It is typical for Samsung to announce a new smartphone at the end of the MWC. However, 2017 seems different since the company’s mobile president has already ruled out such hopes, reports Tech Radar.
Apart from ruling out this possibility, the president added no further information regarding the expected date. However, rumors have settled for 29 March to be the launch date with the first orders arriving in stores by 21 April.
Generally, one needs to be patient for about one month from the launching time to when first sales reach the stores.
There have also been other leaks including 18th April but the underlying fact is that Samsung will not delay us in launching its phone early like before.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy S6 on a two-year contract, you’re going to want to hold onto it for a few more weeks instead of upgrading to the older Galaxy S7.
The date being pushed past MWC doesn’t imply that the release date has been delayed. Instead, there is the possibility that Samsung wants to host a separate event for announcing the gadget. Samsung may also be waiting for the latest specs so as to build the best smartphone possible.
It is also about time to reflect on the Note 7 catastrophic downfall considering the report of the investigation has already been completed. In the report, the blame for the Note 7 exploding into flames has been placed on the battery manufactures. Some experts have suggested that had it not been for the explosive occasions, the Samsung Galaxy S8 would been the best smartphone of the year.
One certain fact is that the upcoming Samsung S smartphone will be referred to as S8 because Samsung has filed an application to protect the name as reported by Tech Radar.
International Inside take on S8 release date: The March 29 launch date is one that has been leaked by reliable sources. This date is supported by the release date which comes about a month later.
Do not let the Note 7 fiasco discourage you from buying Samsung Galaxy S8. Be ready to give Samsung a try, at least by judging the way it fought the Note 7 fire with transparency – a move that could bode well for uneasy customers.
