Samsung Galaxy S8 United Kingdom release date, price, specification rumours

Samsung Galaxy S8 United Kingdom release date, price, specification rumours”

More news about the other possible specs and features of Samsung's Galaxy S8 should be made available in the near future.

For the past few years Samsung has favoured the Mobile World Congress trade show held in early spring to launch its new Galaxy S-series smartphone (s).

A new leak now claims the phone is still on track for a mid-April launch, but Samsung could still announce it at MWC. With this in mind, a price hike for the Samsung Galaxy S8 might not be coming at all.

Unfortunately, it's still hard to confirm if the device included in the image is the real Galaxy S8, and even if it is, Samsung may not state as much for a while longer.

Also, no surprise, the 17-inch model is a bit of a whale at over 8 pounds, contrasted with the 15-inch model's 5.5 pounds. That's in part because the 17-inch model has a heftier 93 Wh battery (compared to the 15-inch model's 43 Wh version).

The key takeaways here are a design language which fits in with the existing Galaxy S7 Edge (and Galaxy S6 Edge+ before it) and also the consistent leaks I've heard so far: significantly slimmer top and bottom bezels and no home button (because the fingerprint sensor is built into the glass).

Excitement around the Samsung Galaxy S8 reached a new high last week when several images claiming to show off the device appeared online. "There is a possibility of the S8 phones being showcased a month or two ahead of the actual release date", an anonymous insider told the publication.

It is also unclear when Samsung would launch its latest beta version of Samsung Pay, but speculation hints that it would make its debut alongside the Galaxy S8, allowing users to take advantage of the Bixby functionality. But there's one little problem: the Note 7. It started off with a potential unveiling at MWC 2017, followed by rumors about an Unpacked event sometime in late March or early April.

How large? Allegedly the 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch displays of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge and be replaced with 5.7-inches and 6.2-inch displays in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge. The Galaxy S7 edge, meanwhile, has gone down from its original £639 RRP to around £517 SIM-free (also at Amazon UK). The S8 is alleged to be the first Samsung device to get an LG battery, but we think it more likely that the Note 8 will be the first Samsung device to get an LG battery - after all, that is the device people are worrying about.
