Galaxy S8 Will Not Debut at Mobile World Congress

Posted by at 10:33 am on January 23, 2017

Samsung mobile chief Koh Dong-jin said the company does not plan to announce its 2017 flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, at next month’s Mobile World Congress trade show.

Samsung has in years past used the international event to show off new S-branded handsets, including the S6 in 2015 and S7 in 2016. Koh did not say when the Galaxy S8 will be announced, though it is widely expected to go on sale by April.

Koh made the comments regarding the S8 to Reuters after the company announced the results of its probe into the Galaxy Note7 battery fire issue. Samsung blamed the fires on two separate battery defects. The company accepted responsibility for the issue and put in place an eight-step quality assurance program for assuring future batteries and smartphones are safe.

“The lessons of this incident are deeply reflected in our culture and process,” said Koh during the briefing. “Samsung Electronics will be working hard to regain consumer trust.”
