Samsung’s leap of faith with its sooner than expected launch of Galaxy Note 7 to counter iPhone 7, failed miserably. The trouble that started in August will take a long time to end. After one another wrong decisions, Samsung, at last, stopped selling and producing Galaxy Note 7. Now the reports are coming that Galaxy S8 release delay two weeks and Samsung may not follow their tradition to launch Galaxy S series flagship, a day or two before Mobile World Congress (MWC) event.
(Update 1: 17 February 2017) The Galaxy Note 7 disaster ends, but still, the release date is delayed. The recent news is that Samsung will release Galaxy S8 variants on 21st of April 2017
Galaxy S8 Release Delay
The earlier plan was to release it earlier than expected; then we heard that Galaxy S8 would launch typically before MWC. Now according to the report, published in Wall Street General, Samsung Galaxy S8 release delay two weeks now, which means the guesstimate unpack ceremony will take place around the second or third week of March 2017.
Reason of Delay
Samsung is still trying to find out the cause of the explosions in Galaxy Note 7 from two months. The engineers of Samsung are toiling to solve the mystery with the development team. This process has delayed the work on upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 by at least two weeks. Another reason, Samsung wants to make sure that Galaxy S8 would not explode and the safety checks would take time.
The Haunted Term ‘Battery.’
According to one more speculated news, Samsung also in talks with LG Company to use their batteries for their next generation smartphone. Currently, Samsung’s sibling company SamsungSDI has been providing the batteries for their Smartphones and Phablets. They also provided 70% batteries of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and 30% batteries were supplied by Chinese battery makers ATL. Now, the reports are suggesting that Samsung is now in talks with LG to borrow batteries from them. Keep in mind that this news is not official yet.
