As we are heading towards the end of January 2017, the rumors on the Galaxy S8 release date have begun to be intensified more than ever before. All the recent reports are expecting to see the device hitting the market in either March or April. But which is the most possible one? In this article, you will find the detailed answer to the question.
Galaxy S8 Release Date: Will the Flagship Phone Enter into the Market in April 2017?
Samsung launched its current generation flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7, in February 2016. The device entered into the market in the following month. However, this time, the release date of the next-gen model might be shifted a month later. According to the recent reports, the Galaxy S8 release date will be set not in March, but in April 2017. The claim has been generated from Naver, a Korean website, which claims that the device will not be revealed at the regular unveiling spot, which is the Mobile World Congress (MWC), in February. Instead, it will be launched at a separate event in New York in March. And it will not enter into the market until April 18th. The specific date ties with the recent reports claiming about Samsung initiating mass production of the device in early March.
Galaxy S8 Release Date: What about March 2017?
While the April release date sounds more logical at this stage, there is still a possibility for the March release. Recently, Samsung has offered a deal in the UK that enables the consumers to get a free Samsung Gear Fit 2 fitness tracker for purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. But more importantly, the offer ends on February 28, which falls in the middle of MWC 2017. According to the recent reports, Samsung is using the deal to sell the remaining Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge just before revealing the Galaxy S8 at the specific event. If the next-gen smartphone is really unveiled in February, it will definitely go for sale in the first two weeks of March 2017. Last year, the Galaxy S7 entered into the market on March 11.
Galaxy S8 Release Date: Which is the Most Possible One?
Our bet for the Galaxy S8 release date is April 18th. Yes, it is a significant delay with respect to the release date of the Galaxy S7. However, the previous models, including Galaxy S6, S5 and S4, had been released in April. In this sense, the April release date sounds very logical.
