The launch of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus is scheduled to take place on March 29, as confirmed by the company at MWC 2017. The official worldwide launch however, was rumoured to be on April 21. Now a latest report from renowned leakster, Evan Blass a.k.a @evleaks suggests that the global launch of the smartphone might take place on April 28, which is a week away from the previously rumoured date.
No reason for the delay of the global launch of the Galaxy S8 is known up till now, but it’s likely said that the company does not want to take a risk and is making multiple checks, having learnt its lesson from the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco last year. The production yield of 10nm Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 chipsets might be another reason as to why the company is pushing back the release date a week away as per the numerous reports.
The production of the Galaxy S8 has already begun in Vietnam, and it looks like the company is also trying to meet the demand of its large consumer base by manufacturing more than 10 million of smartphones in its first phase. The rumoured specs of both the smartphones suggest a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display for the Galaxy S8, and a 6.2-inch display for the higher-end i.e the Galaxy S8 Plus.
Both the smartphones will feature similar set of specifications that include 4GB of RAM, iris scanner, a 12-megapixel dual pixel camera, and support for Bixby AI with a dedicated home button. The official launch is just a three weeks away where we can expect more information about both the devices to be revealed.
