Samsung reportedly showcased the Galaxy S8 to a select few near MWC; partner companies “impressed” with the new handset


Samsung's decision to delay the official announcement of its upcoming flagship was a true loss for this year's MWC, but the Korean manufacturer apparently did bring a Galaxy S8 prototype in Barcelona after all.

The Korea Herald
reveals that Samsung reportedly set up a demonstrations room at the lobby Hotel Porta Fira, which is located quite close to where MWC took place. In in, the tech giant showcased the handset to a select group of partner companies and mobile carriers, and a “temporary wall” was all that kept prying eyes away from the new flagship.

Upon exiting the venue, some representatives of these partner companies revealed that what they saw was “very impressive” to local media outlets. However, no details were given on the exact specs and features of the Galaxy S8, as such information is kept confidential until a device is officially unveiled.

Samsung often employs this “behind closed doors” approach to showcase future devices and tech in order to maintain high levels of client interest, but considering the strong competition it might face this year, the company also used the stage at MWC to publicly display the official teaser video for the Galaxy S8 for the first time.
