Samsung chief says the Galaxy S8 won't be announced at MWC 2017

Samsung Mobile chief DJ Koh today told Reuters that the Galaxy S8 would not be announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017. The show will be held between February 27 and March 2, and it's very likely that the S8 is going to be unveiled at a later date, not before MWC. Unfortunately, DJ Koh did not provide more details about the upcoming smartphone.
If current rumors are accurate, Samsung should announce the Galaxy S8 in late March, or in April, possibly during an event held in New York City. Rumors also have it that the Galaxy S8 series will include a 5-inch regular model, and a 6-inch model dubbed Galaxy S8 Plus. Interestingly, both handsets could sport dual-curve displays, which means Samsung may not have any reason to use "edge" in any of their names.
The slightly curved screens of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus might include fingerprint sensors, thus eliminating the need for a physical home button. Other rumored features include stereo speakers, 8 GB of RAM, and a rear camera that doesn't protrude. Of course, there's only one way to find out how much of this is true, and that's waiting for Samsung's official Galaxy S8 announcement.

The only time I ever cared about a camera 'protruding' was Apple lying about it with their marketing materials. Is it really that big a deal to people?

Nope! Just to PA. What funny is, cameras on phones, at least on Samsung have been protruding since the Note 2/S4. The only reason they do is, phones got thinner faster than the camera sensors did. As tiny as the iPhone sensor is, it still protrudes. The made reason Samsung's protrudes is because it has better optics. Apple doesn't ad the same optics, which is why Samsung's take better phones even when both phones used the exact same sensor Most people put a case on it, which makes it not protrude. PA only keeps bring it up as a negative against Samsung as if this is some deign issue. Yet never talk about it with any other phone, especially not the iPhone.

i think all smartphone makers should just skip releasing phones this year. The market is oversaturated already and the phones that we are usibg are good enough for the next two years or so. Rather than releasing phones every year. Why not work on creating their own software, than lean against Google
