When Is The New Galaxy S8 Coming Out?

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge will come out next year on 26th of February. Samsung never released their Galaxy S-series device in the month of February, but there is a logic behind this hurry.


Samsung always launches their Galaxy S-series device a day before Mobile World Congress (MWC) event. This time, MWC event is taking place in the month of February on 27th. The event will be held from February 27th to 2nd March 2017.

Samsung planned the launching event of Samsung Galaxy S8 a day before MWC event. So, they can not only create hype during their releasing event. Somehow, MWC event will help Samsung as always.

Samsung Galaxy S7 was launched this year on 11th of March and MWC event took place on 12th of March. People from all walks of life were busy in a discussion about Samsung Galaxy S7. Samsung is adopting the same strategy for Samsung Galaxy S8 too.

Features And Specifications

Samsung may ditch the 3.5 mm headphone jack like their rival did. It seems that Samsung wants to compete in the wireless headphone market. You probably would listen to Samsung Galaxy S8 audio through the AirPods.

But interestingly, Samsung Galaxy is not going entirely wireless, and the twist is that you can listen to wired headphones too. The charging port-shaped headphone will work in it.

Samsung may also introduce the dual-lens camera as its competitor did in their latest edition and they were appreciated because of this feature.
