Samsung Galaxy users will have to wait for more for the new Samsung flagship devices of Galaxy S8 and S8+. The wait for users has been extraordinarily long given the fact that its last flagship device Note 7 went up in flames and had to be recalled.
However, it now seems Samsung fans will still have to wait a little longer as the report claims the South Korean smartphone manufacturer might push the release date of Samsung S8 due by a week. According to the company’s original plans, Samsung intended to release the devices on April 21, after unveiling it on March 29.
Earlier, the word was that the Samsung would unveil Galaxy S8 on March 29, 2017.
Leading tech blog Evan Blass claimed that his trusted sources had told him Samsung’s moving the global release of Galaxy S8 by a week to April 28.
Sounds like low yields on the 10nm SoCs (SD835/EX8895) powering S8 could be the main reason for the sched change. LG looking smarter today. https://t.co/rsRzut3Oav

While there’s no clear reason why the release has been rescheduled, it seems that Samsung is proceeding with caution this year given last year’s fiasco surrounding Note7 after a rushed debut.
However, the launch event in New York City on March 29 is still on. The company will officially unveil the handsets for the first time, along with a new Gear VR headset compatible with their designs.
