Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date May be Announced at MWC 2017

Posted March 18, 2017

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. Another leak hinted an Exynos 8890 or a Snapdragon 820 processor along with 3 GB RAM.

But now, it looks like Samsung wants to make it up to the ex-Note 7 owners with the Galaxy Tab S3. The yesteryear model features a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display and employs a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with 2GB RAM. Considering that new devices in the series were introduced during Mobile World Congress in recent years, this year's event seems like a safe bet as to when the unveiling will take place. In terms of OS, Note 8 will mark the Android Nougat.

Samsung is soon to launch Galaxy S8 and S8 plus; with the higher model holding the flagship. The device has been an overall success, but one of the things that have continuously dragged it down is the fact that it hasn't received Android Nougat as the operating system.

Despite the lack of confirmation from Samsung about the Galaxy J5 (2017), the company had refreshed the Galaxy A series and since the 2016 version of the Galaxy J smartphones were released nearly a year ago, the expectation is the J gadgets would also receive the same treatment and the Galaxy J5 (2017) may possibly have some information available at the MWC 2017 in Barcelona.

And reports about the Galaxy S8 are vying with a flurry of new reports about Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 (or iPhone X as some on Wall Street are calling it), due later this year. However the same rumor confirmed that its users would get the S Pen along with the device at no extra cost. 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. It is expected to arrive in April, and rumored to cost around $900.
