The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the most anticipated smartphones for 2017 with rumors coming out almost daily and a very close watch on what the South Korean company will introduce following a difficult 2016. Many were disappointed to learn that Samsung would break tradition and not reveal the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017, but a new report is coming out that states Samsung will in fact announce the smartphone’s launch date at that time.
Join us after the break for more.
As we get closer to MWC 2017, at least one device we are starting to feel confident will be making an appearance is a new tablet from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab S3. The invite for Samsung’s press event at MWC 2017 seems to hint at a tablet being revealed. A couple weeks ago specifications leaked for the alleged Galaxy Tab S3. A new report suggests Samsung is going to give the tablet a stylus albeit one that has to be kept up with manually.
Samsung is expecting to see massive demand for the upcoming Galaxy S8. According to local Korean news outlet The Bell, the Korean tech giant this time around will be almost doubling its first shipments.
Last year’s Galaxy Note 7 was on course to be named as the smartphone of the year until production was discontinued and units were recalled due it’s flawed battery design. As a result, there was major doubt whether Samsung would continue the Note series at all, but it was confirmed back in January that the Korean handset maker would indeed be producing a 2017 edition, and it seems that its internal codename is ‘Baikal’.
For several years now we have seen a wide variety of proposed solutions for foldable smartphones from different manufacturers. One of the main contributors in the field has been Samsung which has a very active group of researchers in their display division. As Samsung moves closer to make a foldable smartphone a reality, ETNews from Korea is reporting the company will have some prototypes on hand at MWC 2017.
This is the LG Watch Sport being announced later today.
Lenovo is scheduled to launch the Moto G5 range of handsets at MWC in Barcelona on February 26th, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a few leaks in the meantime. Last week we saw the wallpaper and ringtones for the Moto G5 Plus become available to download, today sees a possible leak of the specifications for the handset, as seen in the image above.
It appears that ZTE could soon be getting into the Android Wear business with its own smartwatch, according to a report from VentureBeat.
If this is what the phone will look like when official, the Samsung Galaxy S8 could be regarded as one of the most beautiful devices ever.
The LG G6 still isn’t official, but one mobile industry insider is already sharing when you can expect the phone to be released in the United States and other markets.
