Samsung will disclose the official launch date of the Galaxy S8 on February 27 in Barcelona

Samsung is busy preparing its Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone for a launch. As many of you know, unlike past years, Samsung will not unveil the device at MWC, which is to be held in Barcelona in near a week’s time. However, the Chief Executive of Samsung Electronics’ wireless division, Kim Dong-Jin, recently explained that the company will confirm the date of its announcement on February 27, at MWC 2017.

Yes that’s right: Samsung has announced when it is going to announce the Galaxy S8 announcement! We’ve already heard that the company may show off the up and coming flagship smartphone in a minute-long video clip during its MWC 2017 keynote address. In fact, the Galaxy S8 may even make an impression at the show in prototype form behind closed doors.

The company is expected to unveil the two Galaxy S8 models during the last week of March, with a possible release date on or around April 21. This means we could have around six weeks of leaks and rumors before the devices are confirmed. This release schedule is about a month later than usual: Samsung traditionally unveils the new Galaxy S flagship either at or very close to MWC, but for 2017, things are a little different as the company needed to conclude its Galaxy Note 7 battery investigation. We sure hope that Samsung gets it right this time!
