Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S8 will not launch at technology tradeshow Mobile World Congress next month. This is due to recent news of the Note 7 exploding battery, and Samsung want to gain trust, or at least for the news to become older.
However, the rumours suggested it will launch at the end of February at MWC 2017,but now delayed until April 2017, and will be globally available.
Samsung Phones have met so much of the leading technology so far, what with 4k video, fingerprint sensor and so many options already installed, what's left?
Well it does not have a 4K (2160 x 3840) display, but for such a small screen is this even needed. But since it is a small screen 4k could easily become the norm and would increase the ppi.
Dual cameras have appeared on the iPhone 7 Plus and LG G5, so this is one thing that would complete a match.
Battery life could be extended with 14nm that would lower some power consumption, or redirected to fast clock speeds. But with the Note 7 series having exploding batteries they will need to step carefully.
Also the USB Type-C is becoming the industry norm , plus with the popularity of bluetooth audio and headphones, the jack could vanish which would also help improve the waterproofing.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 launch is just around the corner, so if you’re in the market for some big savings, you’d be wise to look at Samsung’s older handsets, as these new handsets will retail for around £800 for the base model.
