Samsung won't unveil Galaxy S8 until April?

According to a new report, the Korean tech giant will host a dedicated event for the new flagship in NY this April, breaking Samsung's tradition of unveiling its latest phone at Mobile World Congress in February.

Still, it seems as Samsung is seriously trying to clean up the mess they left behind with the bomb that was the Galaxy Note 7.

With the Galaxy S8's impending release next year, the clock is ticking for Samsung to act fast to mop up the Note7. This should be expected as the Galaxy S8 will likely change at least one of its most essential elements in a big way - its display. That's where it announced the Galaxy S7 previous year. So we have to keep on waiting till the MWC 2017 to get any confirmation regarding the features of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Oil prices rise in anticipation of tighter 2017 market
Traders said news of the shooting raised concerns about political risks around the globe, which can be supportive for oil futures. Meanwhile, February Brent crude on London's ICE Futures exchange retreated 14 cents, or 0.3%, at $55.07 a barrel.

Samsung describes the Galaxy Game Pack offerings as one powerful advantage. Since the Note 8 development will go on as planned, the foldable phones will only support the flagships in terms of sales rather than leading the fight against Apple, Huawei and other phone makers. Let us know in the comments. Latest photos showed that the S8 Edge follows the previously released filed patent that includes a unique feature of not having a home button and an nearly full-face screen.

The delay may be part of Samsung's strategic move to "work with external agencies" so as to foster more trust among consumers before they introduce the new product.

Back in October, 9to5Macreports that BusinessKorea noted that Samsung and LG were collectively investing a combined record amount of around $11.6B into the development of flexible displays for 2016. It has also been rumored to drop the physical clicky home button in favor of a capacitive version, which is much more common on competing phones these days.
