Samsung Galaxy S8 is all over in the rumor mills but up to now, however, the details of the release date have remained elusive.
It seems this has officially come to an end as information coming from Korea claims that the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be launched at the MWC 2017 event as many had predicted, rather, the company will hold a separate event during which this flagship will be unveiled to the world.
According to the report, Samsung will hold a special event in New York City on April 18 during which the Galaxy S8 will be released. If this is true, it will be the first time Samsung Galaxy S phone comes to life in such a month. Last year, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were announced at the MWC 2016 event in Barcelona, something that many predicted will be repeated this year. It is possible that Samsung Galaxy S8 could be launched in late March or early April before being made official on the said date.
Even though not confirmed just yet, the new report only serves to add weight to another recent leak that claimed Samsung Galaxy S8 mass production will begin in March. Just recently, another report coming from the same region claimed that Samsung will be mass producing up to 10 million Galaxy S8 units in preparation for the initial release. This is a figure arrived at following last year’s debut sales recorded for the Galaxy S7.
Samsung will reportedly come with two variants of the Galaxy S8 – with the other being the Plus version. This, like the details about the release date, has not been confirmed and should also be taken with a grain of salt. We should be getting in touch with more Samsung Galaxy S8 news in the coming days as the launch date moves closer and closer.
