Samsung is although expected to debut the two 2017 flagship devices later this month at an Unpacked event in New York City, but now it appears to have changed its plans, which won’t be publicly available until 28th of April 2017. Meaning that the release date has slipped about a week. It had been widely reported that the release time frame would be April 21st, which is about three weeks after the Galaxy Unpacked keynote.
Now, according to the latest press report, that release has been delayed slightly, rather not mentioning that there was no mentioned reason for the release being delayed. Since the devices aren’t even officially ready for the iteration, it’s really tough to call this a delay.
It’s expected that Samsung is being extra careful with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ launch this year, after the issues they ran into with the Galaxy Note 7 debacle. Also said that Samsung doing plenty more testing on their new smartphones ahead of the launch date, to be sure that they don’t have a repeat of the infamous Galaxy Note 7 recalls in 2016.

With that said, Samsung assuming itself had already tipped that they are going to be thoroughly testing the batteries in all of their smartphone variants, and will even be testing out the heat pipes and other internals of the phone to be sure that it says cool and presumably, doesn’t explode or burst into flames.
There were a majority of leaks made for upcoming Galaxy S8, as the latest following is the photos of seven leaked online, showing off the Galaxy S8’s rear-facing fingerprint sensor and the Bixby AI assistant button on its front. The Galaxy S8 Plus was also listed on the list, that have basically told us everything there is to know about the two smartphones from Samsung. Although the company will likely have some surprises up ther sleeve for their March 29th debut.
It seems like Samsung had opted not to announce these two devices at MWC 2017, which is where the major output of the Galaxy S devices have been launched (except for a couple). Instead they used the trade show to announce the event date for the Galaxy S8 unveil and continued to hype it up all week long in Barcelona.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are still a few weeks away from being made official, and likely everyone will be able to get their hands on it rather soon or later. That’s one of the best things which Samsung has excelled at over their rivals or competitors, getting their devices out fairly quickly enough after the launch event. Stay tuned for more!
