New report claims Samsung Galaxy S8 will be released on April 18

New report claims Samsung Galaxy S8 will be released on April 18
Samsung is expected to unveil its next flagship smartphone in April, of that we're almost certain, but information about the Galaxy S8 market availability has been a bit of a mystery until today.

Korean media reports industry sources claim that Samsung has already confirmed that the market launch date of the Galaxy S8 has already been decided. The flagship will be launch globally on April 18, but it's likely to benefit from a staged release, so it won't be available in all countries at once.

The same source claims Samsung Galaxy S8 will be officially unveiled at a dedicated event, which is said to take place by late March or early April.

Although the information comes in line with other reports claiming Samsung will start Galaxy S8 mass production in March and plans to have around 10 million units ready for the April release, it hasn't been confirmed by the company's officials.

On a side note, Korean media suggests that Samsung's original plan included a February unveil for the Galaxy S8, but due to the unexpected Galaxy Note 7 recall, it had to modify the schedule and push back the announcement.

Another cause for the delay is the major design change that Samsung plans for the Galaxy S8, but the major reason behind the rather late announcement is the long production process time required for the new flagship.

The Galaxy S8 is expected to feature a bezel-less display, which will allow Samsung to enlarge the screen without changing the phone's size. Also, Samsung will ditch the physical Home key in favor of virtual button integrated in the display.

One of 2 phones I'm interested in, the other being the 8 Edge.

Less lag. More carrier band support. No explosion. A speaker that does not suck and isn't on the bottom. That is all.

You ask for the impossible. Especially the lag part.

Your delusional rant won't change reality. Samsung's flagships as from 2015 have been flying high with TouchWiz... Deal with it. But hey... you love your dreamland, don't you?

Not any more that it applies to you. ^^ Besides, your "100-85=25" isn't reality. But hey, you love your dreamland... don't you?

I wouldn't call it lag but they're not as fast as stock devices in speed and multitasking. Galaxy S7 is quite far behind when compared to devices like the Pixel or OnePlus 3, delay, lag or just generally a bit slower, call it whatever you want.

I know.

Every iPhone I've owned lagged at some point, the iPhone still has a speaker on the bottom, and just got the one on top this year. Mxy, the iPhone 6, 6S, and 7 all had documented fire and overheating cases, Apple just didn't recall them, which could be good or bad. This double standard you have, when judging Galaxys, but not iPhones when they do the same thing is why a lotta people here don't take you serious, and think you're a troll. In my experience, my Samsung phones lag a little more than my iPhones, but they also practically run 2 full-blown non watered down platforms that do it all. The iPhone runs 1 watered down platform that doesn't. You gotta expect a hiccup here and there. It's like having a C7 Z06, or a Lamborghini, and complaining about the gas milage not being good enough. When you through in everything but the kitchen sink, there's bound to be lag. IPhones don't require a lot of system resources, cause they don't do too much. Galaxys are the exact opposite.

At least darkk can make a convincing point. You, otoh, just exist here for no apparent reason other than wasting space.

I've stopped using the iPhone after the 6 since I decided to go with the Nexus 6P and I've requested dual ffs on the iphone many times. But the bottom speaker is far better than the garbage speakers on Samsung phones. That is a fact that can be proven by going to YouTube and watching some of the tech blogs. Define "don't do too much." iirc, Alik made a very good point last time you said that. The iPhones now can do just as much as android phones can, for the most part. This whole Samsung can do more than the iphone is a misconception. Most of the iPhones that lag have the 1GB of RAM which is now no longer a problem. Btw, did I mention how much the newest iPhones always seem to beat the latest Galaxy phones in benchmarks. That is a fact bro. Now as far as the double standards go, well Android fans are just as guilty especially the Samsung fans. You of all people should know that.

I know iPhones benchmark faster, and open games faster, but Galaxys do way more Mxy. I'll never say the iPhone sucks, but it's behind the Galaxys other than benchmarks.
