A new rumour is suggesting that the Korean tech giant could be moving to launch the Galaxy S8 earlier in the year than usual, possibly by February 2017. This would be about a month before the regular release schedule of their flagshiph handset, allowing them to build up serious buzz around Mobile World Congress.
If that turns out to be true, and just a mere four months away, you can expect the company to start trying to turn the conversation around to that newer slice of technology. Early reports are suggesting it could come with two cameras in a design which will help with low light photography as well as a bezel-less screen.
The S7 and S7 Edge are the most highly rated smartphones in the world currently, and the Note 7 enjoyed much critical acclaim before battery issues forced a global recall. Now the company is facing a second round of problematic devices and will be desperate to find something more positive to talk about.
