Samsung will not present the Galaxy S8 at the 2017 Mobile World Congress

It seems that the South Korean company Samsung has decided to star in the technological news at the beginning of this new week, well, if only a few hours ago officially announced what was the real cause of the explosions and fires of the Galaxy Note 7, something that I have already told you here in Androidsis when I was still with my eyes half closed, now what they tell us from South Korea is that the long-awaited Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be presented at the Mobile World Congress in 2017 which, like every year, will be held next month in the city of Barcelona.

The Galaxy S8 will be presented later than in previous years

According to the statements that Koh Dong-jin, head of Samsung’s mobile division, has made to the Reuters news agency, the South Korean company will not present the latest version of its line of flagship smartphones Galaxy S during the Mobile World celebration. Congress of Barcelona, ​​a decision that breaks with a tradition of many years and that undoubtedly means the loss of one of the great moments of this event in which the city of Barcelona becomes, for a few days, the world capital of mobile technology.

This confirmation goes perfectly with certain rumors that point in the direction that Samsung is already planning a special event to take place in New York sometime in April., and in which it could present its new flagships from the Galaxy S8 range.

Rain of rumors

During the last few months, and even more so during the last weeks, the rumors about the next Samsung flagship, the long-awaited Galaxy S8, have only increased. Already during last December we could hear how the company planned major changes in terms of the external design of the new terminals, especially in relation to a considerable reduction of frames from the terminal, but also new tactile featuress in 3D and even some new wireless headphones that would be presented along with the new models of the Galaxy S8.

There have also been different rumors and certain “leaks” that Samsung’s virtual assistant ‘Bixby’ is likely to play an important role in the Galaxy S8, acting as an artificial intelligence assistant similar to the competing company, Apple. . More recently, it has even been learned that Bixby might be able to use the camera to make a visual search.

In addition, also the S Health app (Samsung’s health app) will be undergoing a major update that will bring new functions and features like doctor’s appointments and more.

One of the most recent rumors, and one that has aroused the greatest interest, is the alleged leak of the glass panels of the next Samsung Galaxy S8 that reveal a device almost without frames and with rounded and soft corners.

The importance of a Galaxy S8 full of news

In short, it seems that Samsung is making great efforts to present in 2017 a new line of flagship smartphones that constitute a compendium of novelties. This is of vital importance if, as the company has already stated, it intends to reach, and even exceed, the sixty million units sold. To do this, it will have to face Apple, which this year celebrates the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, and from which great news is also expected. For this, Samsung has the advantage (or perhaps the disadvantage) of presenting its Galaxy S8 before the Cupertino company presents its supposed iPhone 8.

On the other hand, Samsung must try very hard to regain lost confidence after the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, and nothing better than a great device full of news to make you forget such a bad drink.

Thus, with the decision made by Samsung, it is clear that MWC 2017 could be a little less exciting this yearWell, one of its highlights was the presentation of Samsung’s flagship, but there is still a lot to see from the likes of HTC, LG and many other Android device manufacturers.
