The Samsung Galaxy S8 may be delayed until April, so that it’s free from MWC’s bustle

There was already talk that Samsung will delay the launch of the Galaxy S8 from its usual schedule, a MWC Unboxed event. Initial reports suggested March, saying that the company will beef up its testing procedure to avoid a repeat of the Note that shall not be named.

But hearsay from Samsung strategy meeting suggest there’s more to this story – the S8 reveal may be pushed back to April and be held primarily at New York. This will give it about a margin of about a month, so that the MWC hype may die down and allow consumer attention to converge on the next Galaxy flagship.

This hints that a huge marketing campaign is in store for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and there may be plenty of changes. Relocated fingerprint reader, removed Home button, focus on an in-house AI assistant (perhaps with a dedicated button) and – to our readers’ displeasure – no 3.5mm headphone jack, all of that will take some explaining.

Of course, there’s the possibility that the Galaxy S8 will not have clear skies in April – Apple launched the iPhone SE in March this year and Nokia is scheduled to launch Android phones in Q2 2017, for example.
