Although the MWC 2017 has already come to an end, some of the hottest flagship premieres are still waiting for its unveiling. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of them. Today this one of the most fervently rumored phone has surfaced the net one more time. Except for images presenting the handset in its whole beauty, the latest leak reveals that the Galaxy S8 devices will debut later than expected.
The Galaxy S8 will be announced on April 28. The phablet will offer an attractive and functional curve edge design with a tall 18:9 screen ratio.
To start from the video and live photos, the materials confirm that the Galaxy S8 will sport the extremely functional dual curve edge display, and the high-quality shiny body made out of glass and metal. Unlike previous generations of the series the curved panel will be present in two models of the line: the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus, which will most probably differ in terms of size-factor. The Galaxy S8 will be a 5.8-inch device, while the Galaxy S8 is expected to house a really massive 6.2-inch panel
However, apart from the well-known from previous models features the Galaxy S8 will also include several changes. The biggest one will be a fingerprint scanner located on the device’s back next to the camera and on-screen navigation buttons, a thing so far absent in the Galaxy S series. Other that that the Galaxy S8 is supposed to include a tall 18:9 screen ratio (a similar one may be found in the recently unveiled LG G6).
Moving on to the second news that is the flagship premiere date, it has been postponed one more time. Previously, it was expected that the Galaxy S8 will make its first official public appearance on April 21, however the launch will be most likely delayed by another week. This means that it will debut on April 28, 2017.
Although the official reason of the delay hasn’t been officially confirmed, rumor has it that it centers around the processor issues. The Galaxy S8 is to work on the Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 dependently on the region, and Samsung and Qualcomm need more time to make things run like a clockwork. It’s pretty obvious that Samsung wants to avoid a situation similar to this concerning the ill-fated Note 7 withdrawn from the market due to its explosive battery issues. This allowed LG to steal the MWC show by releasing the LG G6. Even though some consider equipping the LG G6 with a Snapdragon 821 processor a short sight policy, the truth is that unlike its biggest rival the manufacturer won’t have to deal with new processor tech issues.
That’s all for today, at least when it comes to the Galaxy S8. Following days should bring masses of equally hot leaks concerning this one of the most anticipated releases for 2017. Be sure we will keep you posted!
