The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to arrive soon, and, as such, rumors should start picking up steam.
After the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco last year, Samsung has reportedly decided to take its own sweet time in launching the Galaxy S8 this year. And rightfully so. The company wants to ensure that in its hurry to release the Galaxy S8, it ends up shipping with the same problem as the Galaxy Note 7.
Rumors had suggested Samsung would be getting rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack from its upcoming flagship smartphone.
While we have heard quite a bit about the Samsung Galaxy S8 at this point, the device has not leaked in pictures or renders yet. That changes today with a leaked image originating from China that purportedly gives us the first look at Samsung’s next flagship handset.
Samsung is reportedly planning on launching the Galaxy S8 in April next year, instead of its usual unveiling at MWC like it has done in the past. Instead, the company will be holding a separate event for the handset’s unveiling in New York in April.
Samsung’s mobile business head Koh Dong-jin has urged the company’s employees to not leak data about its upcoming flagship products and devices, including the Galaxy S8.
Corroborating previous reports, Bloomberg today details that Samsung’s flagship for 2017, the Galaxy S8, will come with an “all-screen front” and lack a physical home button. Both variants of the Galaxy S8 will come with curved displays albeit in different sizes.
