Samsung Galaxy S8: release date and everything you should know….

Improving on perfection!

The latest leaks point to a 4K screen, a mini projector, 6GB of RAM, a 30MP camera, an enormous battery and a supercharged processor. The S8 may also launch ahead of schedule and may ditch flat screens altogether, with comments by Samsung executives suggesting that all models will have curves, while sources claim the company has already started ordering curved panels in two sizes.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 was almost everything we hoped for, with improvements throughout leading it to be one of the most powerful, stylish and all round accomplished smartphones on the market.

But there’s still room for improvement and it’s low on innovation, so we have a wish list for what we want to see from the Samsung Galaxy S8. We’d also love to hear what you think, so let us know in the comments below and we’ll furiously email them to Samsung.

The phone won’t be launching for a long time yet, but that just means Samsung should have time to implement some of our suggestions. Here’s hoping it listens.

What will it cost? Maybe around $850 (roughly £655/AU$1120)

Samsung Galaxy S8 release date

Hottest leaks:

A late February announcement

An earlier launch than usual

It’s too early to get too specific about release dates, but the Samsung Galaxy S8 is certain to launch in early 2017, since the beginning of the year is typically when Samsung rolls out its new flagships.

The last couple of years the brand has shown off the phone the day before Mobile World Congress starts, with MWC 2017 set to kick off on 27 February… meaning a Galaxy S8 release date of February 26.

In terms of when you’ll be able to fondle it for the first time, expect a two week wait – so March 13 is our best guess there. Though one leak talks about an April release date, so the wait could be longer than usual.
