Samsung Galaxy: Unbox Your Phone

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

History had us believe that Samsung would present the Galaxy S8 at Mobile World Congress this year. But instead, the tech giant bucked trends and used the world’s largest mobile event to simply announce an expected launch date during their press conference in Barcelona.

Later, via their twitter feed, Samsung unveiled plans for a Galaxy Unpacked launch event, which would be held on 29 March 2017 in New York City. It is believed that the delay is due to stringent quality control measures put in place after last year’s Galaxy Note 7 recall and a limited supply of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipsets. Samsung are also hinting at major innovation, with rumours that Samsung will break from tradition and release two curved devices this time around, rather than one flat and one edged.

“Soon, very soon, we’ll show you how we’ve pushed the boundaries even further with innovation of the kind that this industry hasn’t seen for a very long time,” said David Lowes, Senior VP and CMO of Samsung Europe.

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Samsung have been announcing their Galaxy flagship handsets at Mobile World Congress for as long as we can remember, but 2017 may see Samsung break this pattern with a dedicated launch event in New York this month.

The South Korean tech giants are rumoured to be releasing two sizes, both with curved screens, according to the Wall Street Journal. Recent leaked images also suggest that both handsets will featured a curved ‘infinity’ edge to edge screen and the removal of the physical home button:

8 Rumours surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S8

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

It has been all but confirmed that Samsung are likely to announce the successor to the incredibly popular Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S8, at Mobile World Congress 2017.

Alongside the Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge, Samsung’s latest flagship is likely to make up for the disaster of “explosion gate” thanks to some impressive features and specifications.

We’ve collected 8 of the best rumours:

1. Goodbye Headphone Jack

Taking their lead from Apple, it is rumoured that Samsung are to do away with the headphone jacks in their latest handsets. Backed up by claims from SamMobile, the South Korean tech giant are also planning to launch a new pair of wireless earbuds to accompany the Galaxy S8 later this year.

2. Edge to Edge Display

There are many ‘leaked images’, rendors and concept images based on information from reliable sources suggesting the Galaxy S8 could a bezel-less device. Unlike the Galaxy S7 range, both smartphones released may feature the curved display.

3. No Physical Home button

To help achieve the bezel-less design it is likely that Samsung may remove physical keys altogether from the front of the handsets, leaving users to rely on the virtual buttons on the screen. It is believed that the decision to get rid of the capacitive buttons will allow Samsung to reduce specific bezels at the bottom of the device.

4. 5.2 inch 4K Display

With Samsung heavily pushing virtual reality, we would not be surprised to see powerful screen resolution on the device. Many leaks are pointing to  5.2-inch 4K-capable display (with a 2160 x 4096 resolution) enhancing the experience when paired with a Samsung Galaxy Gear and Google Daydream VR.

5. Power

Pocket Lint reported that the Galaxy S8 may pack a powerful punch thanks to a 3.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor and 6GB of Ram.

6. Scanners, Batteries and Mini Projector

Other rumours suggest the inclusion of a retina scanner, fingerprint scanner, wireless charging (of the possible 4200mAh mega battery) and even an inbuilt mini-projector so you can share your media with your friends in a more sociable setting. 

7. Camera

Previous rumours suggested a possible dual-lens camera for this device, but more up-to-date information leans towards the introduction of a massive 30 megapixel camera (with OIS) and an 8 megapixel selfie camera. Samsung are also likely to ditch unwanted camera protrusion, with a  rear camera that sits completely flush to the body of the handset.

8. Release Date

Samsung galaxy S8 MWC17

Whilst this piece of information has not been confirmed, it can be predicted quite easily. Since the release of the Galaxy S2, all Galaxy handsets have been announced at or around the time of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona. If this pattern continues, we can look forward to hearing concrete news late February this year.
