Samsung’s Galaxy S8 goes to be one in all 2017’s largest (and most controversial) smartphones, however now we’ve a launch date and it might be late to market…
The knowledge arrives by way of Korea due to the ever vigilant SamMobile and says Samsung may properly skip its common unveiling spot at Cellular World Congress in February. As a substitute Samsung is considered contemplating a separate occasion in New York in March with the Galaxy S8 subsequently not occurring sale till April 18th.
This is able to be a big delay in comparison with the Galaxy S7 which was launched on March 11th 2016, however it could really be extra inline with Galaxy S releases traditionally. After all of the Galaxy S6, S5 and S4 all went on sale in April on the 10th, 11th and 27th respectively. Previous to that Galaxy S3, S2 and S1 handsets had been launched in the direction of the center of the yr in Could/June.
Moreover the April 18th date ties in with current reviews that Samsung will begin mass manufacturing of the Galaxy S8 in early March. As such I’d counsel you be careful for conspiracy theories relating to this later date. Particularly in the event that they attempt to tie it to the Galaxy Word 7’s battery issues.
A few of that is more likely to stem from information Samsung will once more use its battery division, Samsung SDI , to provide batteries for the Galaxy S8. It’s because SDI provided batteries for the ‘explosive’ Galaxy Word S7, however such a conclusion could be reductionist for the reason that similar issues had been additionally discovered when Samsung used alternative batteries by ATL.
As such it’s broadly believed the fault lies not with the batteries however how tightly they had been packed contained in the Galaxy Word 7. Samsung confirmed at CES this week that it’ll disclose its full findings from the Galaxy Word 7 investigation quickly.
With the Galaxy S8 getting shut and an thrilling Galaxy Word eight within the works, the earlier Samsung can put everybody’s minds relaxed the higher. Now Samsung, I’ve one request: please please don’t spoil them…
