It has already been confirmed that Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be revealed at the upcoming Mobile World Congress tech event in Spain, but new reports claim that the South Korean tech giant will give details of the expected release date of the phone.
Previous reports have suggested that the Galaxy S8 will be unveiled at a separate multi-city event, with New York City only one of the cities, on March 29. Whether this is true or not has not been confirmed by Samsung, but it appears it won’t be long before we get to know when the tech giant will be unveiling the upcoming flagship.
According to incoming reports, Samsung will confirm the launch and possible release date details of the Galaxy S8 when it visits Barcelona for the MWC event. This is coming from a report picked up by Samsung-centric website Sam Mobile, adding that the expected Galaxy Tab S3 will still be the major highlight of the press conference.
This is not the first time such reports about Samsung giving us a glimpse of the Galaxy S8 at the MWC show have surfaced. In fact, it was previously rumored that the S8 will get a one-minute video at the event, something that the latest report actually adds weight to. It would indeed be a welcome idea for Samsung to shed some light on the launch date of this phone, at least to clear the air with respect to the many rumors that are doing rounds.
Speaking of rumors, Samsung Galaxy S8 is said to come with a twin dubbed the Galaxy S8+. Where the former will have a 5.8-inch QHD screen, the latter will debut a much bigger 6.2-inch QHD screen. Both screens will be curved Super AMOLED panels and the rest of the specs will remain the same – including a Snapdragon 835 and at least 4GB of RAM. Whether Samsung will include the rumored Bixby AI voice assistant or not is still a mystery, but reports are adamant that there won’t be a dual-lens camera just yet.
