Leaked invite says when Samsung’s Galaxy S8 launches


The year may have more than two months left, but an insider isn’t waiting to share when the Galaxy S8 will launch.


A leaked invite indicates that Samsung isn’t changing up its schedule to get its 2017 flagship into the hands of millions around the world.

The Galaxy S8, according to the leaked invite, should be unveiled on February 26 at MWC 2017 in Barcelona. We’re slightly skeptical because it’s unlikely that a public relations team would send invites to the media months in advance. Usually invites for media events are distributed 3-6 weeks before the scheduled date..

If MWC 2017 is the launching pad for the company’s next flagship, Samsung is seemingly not worried about the potential damage its Galaxy Note 7 scandal will have on the brand. That device is experiencing a second recall that includes a global halt in production. After the first recall, multiple sources said Samsung began considering moving up the launch of the Galaxy S8; however, today’s invite leak suggests no concern exists and the schedule will continue as usual.

Until we get a new flagship, the Galaxy S7 Edge remains our recommendation as the must-have Samsung phone of the year.
