Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Has Reportedly Been Delayed

We’re expecting Samsung’s new Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones to launch on March 29th during an event in New York City, but their official release date has yet to be determined. Despite rumors pointing toward an April 21st shelf hit, according to VentureBeat, both handsets have been delayed until April 28th, another week’s wait for anyone anxious to see Samsung’s first flagship offering for 2017.

Although it can hardly be considered a delay, since the devices have not even been announced yet, the Samsung Galaxy S8 duo’s release timetable has slipped by a week relative to the company’s original plans. The S8 and S8+ are now scheduled for a global release on April 28 — and not April 21, as previously reported by VentureBeat — according to a person briefed on the company’s revised target.

It’s unclear why the delay has reportedly taken place, but there’s always the possibility that Samsung’s simply taking their darn time with the S8 so no major slip-ups like what went down with the Note 7 happen again. Luckily, it still looks like we’ll see the phones’ unveiling come March 29th.
