Yesterday Samsung sent out invites for its MWC press conference teasing a tablet (expected ‘Samsung Galaxy Tab S3’) launch instead of the flagship Galaxy S8. Furthermore, the company had previously confirmed that it won’t launch the Samsung Galaxy S8 during MWC and later reports speculated March 29 launch date.
Now according to a report from Korea Herald, the South Korean giant is expected to showcase a minute long video teaser of the Galaxy S8 during the scheduled MWC event in Barcelona to keep the buzz going around the new 2017 flagship.
While it is no official communication or an insider tip, we also feel that Samsung might unveil the Galaxy S8 teaser during the anticipated Galaxy Tab S3 event on February 26. Not just that, we might also get to see an official launch date of the Samsung Galaxy S8 in that same video.
To remind you, Samsung usually unveils its flagship Galaxy S series smartphone at MWC every year, but this year the launch has been delayed. The company probably wants to do rigorous testing this time around and wouldn’t like to repeat same mistakes that caused the Note 7 explosions.
So far, the Samsung Galaxy S8 has been leaked in all glory. An image leak from @evleaks shows the front and back of alleged Galaxy S8 suggesting no Home button and rear mounted fingerprint sensor. As for the specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will come in two screen variants – 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Quad-HD display with Snapdragon 835 , 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB, 3250mAh and 3750mAh battery.
