The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are amongst the most powerful smartphones released this year. These two handsets are still Samsung’s most powerful offerings, mainly thanks to the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were introduced back in February, and Samsung had announced some new color variants of the Galaxy S7 Edge recently, just to keep consumers interested while they’re waiting for the Galaxy S8 to make an appearance. Speaking of which, the Galaxy S8 is expected to land in the first half of next year, some rumors have been suggesting it will launch during the Mobile World Congress (MWC), like its predecessors, other rumors have been pointing towards April as the release timeframe. Well, a new rumor has just popped up, read on.
According to a new rumor, the Galaxy S8’s announcement could be pushed back to April, as some previous rumors suggested. This new info claims that the phone will be announced in New York in April, as the company is still recovering from the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. Samsung is allegedly planning to work with external agencies in order to execute plans to recover confidence from consumers before they launch the Galaxy S8. In any case, do keep in mind that this is just a rumor at this point, Samsung did not officially confirm anything of the sort, and chances are we’ll see quite a few additional rumors just like this one before the company introduces the Galaxy S8, in fact, we’ve already seen a ton of such rumors.
Previous Galaxy S8 rumors claimed that the company plans to ditch the physical home key below the display, and that the phone’s fingerprint scanner will be built into the device’s display, or perhaps placed on the back of the phone. The Galaxy S8 will, allegedly, be a bezel-less smartphone, and its display will be curved. If rumors are to be believed, Samsung will not introduce a flat-screened version of the Galaxy S8, but will lay faith into the curved model(s), which is quite interesting considering the Galaxy S7 was really popular this year, even though the Galaxy S7 Edge is selling better than the regular Galaxy S7 model.
