Samsung's Galaxy S8 might be more expensive and come later than expected
Recently we told you that the Galaxy S8 might not come with two of its expected features. Today we have to add, that it may also be delayed and might cost you more. According to sources from within the company, who are attending a three day conference for high-ranking managers at Samsung headquarters these days, Samsung is discussing the possibility of delaying the launch of the upcoming flagship phone to April of next year and holding a launch event in New York City. Traditionally, Samsung has introduced new Galaxy-S phones during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which will start at February 27th of next year.
According to analysts at Goldman Sachs who recently predicted production costs for the Galaxy S8, the next generation might cost Samsung 15 to 20 percent more than the Galaxy S7 edge did last year. This will most likely result in higher prices when the Galaxy S8 goes on sale whenever Samsung deems it ready for an official launch. Apparently, Samsung is discussing how it can regain the trust of consumers after the battery-disaster of the failed Galaxy Note 7. While Samsung itself already knows the reasons why the phone failed, it has yet to tell the public, which they are expected to do before year's end.
