Samsung Galaxy S8 leak suggests MWC 2018 reveal
According to online reports from South Korean ET news, the successor to the current Galaxy S7 flagship will be unveiled on or just prior to the opening keynote of next year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. This would follow in the footsteps of the reveals of previous Galaxy S smartphones and would be the first major public announcement from Samsung following the ongoing Note 7 brouhaha.
Nonetheless, the source claims that the actual launch of the Galaxy S8 may be delayed as the current focus throughout the company is to pinpoint the cause (or causes) of the exploding batteries and to reestablish public confidence in Samsung products. Furthermore, additional resources are being poured onto the safety aspects of the Galaxy S8 and this would only add delays to the launch of the smartphone.
Chinese blog Weibo has leaked details on a Samsung phablet that could potentially be the unannounced Galaxy S8. Accordingly, the S8 could be shipping with a 5.5-inch AMOLED UHD display, either 6 GB to 8 GB of RAM, and either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 SoC or an Exynos 8895 depending on the region.
