Samsung Galaxy S8 to be introduced on February 26th according to teaser
posted by Alan F. / Oct 09, 2016, 12:51 AM
In the wake of the disaster called the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the manufacturer needs to give consumers something to take their minds off the possibility that there will be a second recall of the phablet. This time, it would be the "safe" version of the Galaxy Note 7 being returned to Samsung. Already, there is talk that AT&T is considering the cancellation of all Galaxy Note 7 sales.
All four major U.S. carriers are allowing customers with the replacement version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to replace them for any available new phone in stock. If it turns out that the Galaxy Note 7 that exploded on a Southwest Airlines plane last Wednesday was a replacement unit, it probably will be lights out on a phablet that showed so much promise.
While Samsung could end up losing billions of dollars in Galaxy Note 7 sales, the future of the brand is at stake as well. So to keep everyone eyes on the future, Samsung has sent out a teaser for the Samsung Galaxy S8. The image reveals that Samsung's next flagship handset will be introduced on February 26th at MWC 2017 in Barcelona. It will be the next Galaxy Unpacked event.
There really isn't much Samsung can do to regain consumer trust if it turns out that the Galaxy Note 7 replacement units are just as dangerous as the original phones. So while turning consumers' focus on to the Samsung Galaxy S8 seems like a smart idea, it might take years before Samsung is able to convince the world that its mobile devices are safe.

I don't see it being released then. Even the rumors last year said that the s7 would be released in feb and it was not.

This article is not really about Note 7 issue. You don't need to remind us about it - everyone knows, and even the trolls feel sad for Samsung about the issue. I know you want to get your revenge on the trolls that trolled Apple all these years - this is as good of an opportunity as any, but at least keep it on a relevant article. I honestly think it's time to end the trolling - the issue is too damn serious now to make fun of.

They have way more problems to worry about at the moment lol. http://www.theverge.com/2016/1
I don't care about the phone spontaneously smoking (at this point....meh). But that Samsung rep text is as damning (if accurate) as I've ever seen for true intentions. A day or so ago I had an argument with members here about corporate agenda and accountability, and I can think of no better reality check than this. If true (if being very important) this is the most incompetent Rep in history lol.

And Samsung's fanboys on this site are still denying everything and are calling it a scam LOL. They even want to keep it no matter what! I wanted the Note 7 myself and was even waiting for its official launch in Europe in November, but now that the 'safe' units are exploding and Samsung doesn't take action, I'm definately skipping it.

To try to steer everyone away from the Note 7 fiasco

And do you blame them? They're still a business after all. This is what businesses must do - do you really expect Samsung to just roll over and play dead? I'm sure they're handling the issue the best they could - this is unpresidented on any scale and I don't think any company is prepared for something like this if it had happened to them.

If this is indeed not fake , then Samsung is trying their best to diverted attention from the Note 7. That's not gonna happen Samsung. Just cancel the Note 7 already! It's a defunct piece of tech .Dump it and focus on S8 and Note 8 series

I think that's kind of what they're doing. Business must go on.

I've been using the note 7 for more almost 3 months now, from the old and the new note 7. Seriously, this phone is much better than the other recent smartphone. Even compare with iPhone 7. From the looks and the functionality, it exceed all the competitors.
