Samsung recently cleared the air by confirming that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will not be unveiled next month during the MWC 2017 show, but the CEO, DJ Koh, did not mention the date when this will be happening.
Even before this confirmation was made, a source close to the company had given out some crucial details about the supposed launch of Samsung Galaxy S8. Back then, it was rumored that the company will get a few units ready for the event in Barcelona just so as to show the world what to expect when the real thing comes around later on. But this won’t be happening as it was confirmed by Samsung Mobile chief.
Still, the same old rumor added that Samsung will hold a major press conference on March 29. This, according to the leak, would be used to unveil the Galaxy S8 and later on released to the world, probably after two weeks or so. The tipster went further to shed some light on the possible price of the phone, claiming that it will be valued at a whopping $849.
Now, this same tipster has surfaced with fresh details about the launch event for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. While there is no change in dates, there are some updates as to what Samsung is planning. If the leak is to be believed, the tech giant will be holding multiple launch events in different cities across the U.S. and Europe. Of course, this won’t be anything strange as it has happened before, with cities like New York, London, Seoul and probably Beijing expected to be part of the multiple city event.
At the moment, there is nothing concrete that has come out regarding the specs and features of Samsung Galaxy S8. For now, it’s all about rumors and they are quite interesting. As it is, Samsung will ship two phones with 5.7 and 6.2 inches of curved displays and QHD resolutions. The processor to power them will be the Snapdragon 835 and rumors claim that Samsung will install 6GB RAM modules in the phones. There is talk of a dual-lens camera for the Plus variant, but this cannot be confirmed. It has also been rumored that the increased display size is due to the removal of the physical home button and hence reducing the size of bezels.
With March 29 not so far away, we’d rather be patient and see what Samsung has in store for us, but for now, make sure you treat all current details as mere rumors.
