Over the past few days, we’ve heard some rumors that Samsung Galaxy S8 is going ot launch next month at the Mobile World Congress 2017, but it seems that’s not going to happen.
Samsung mobile chief Koh Dong-jin has confirmed that Galaxy S8 won’t make an appearance at the Mobile World Congress 2017 which will kick off on February 27th in Barcelona.
Unfortunately, the executive didn’t hint at any date for the launch of the handset, but some rumors point at March 29th to be the launch date.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 met an unfortunate end, with the main reason behind the fires being the faulty batteries with the handset costing company over $5 billion in losses. The company don’t want to end up in a similar situation and want to regain the trust of its customers with the launch of its flagship device.
“The lessons of this incident are deeply reflected in our culture and process,” Koh told reporters at a press briefing. “Samsung Electronics will be working hard to regain consumer trust.”
Details about the handset are scarce at the moment, but we’ll update you as soon as we get any other detail about the launch of the handset.
