It has been over a week since Samsung confirmed the global recall of the Galaxy Note 7 due to faulty batteries. Samsung has stopped selling the Galaxy Note 7 across the globe and sales are likely to remain suspended until the repairing solution.
Some analysts believe that this is going to force Samsung to advance the Galaxy S8 release next year. This could be a possibility given that Samsung hasn’t had ample time to sell its latest flagship smartphone. It has had to recall the Galaxy Note 7 merely two weeks after the new flagship was released and it’s expected that sales might not be resumed in some key markets like the United States until October.
The company still did not made any official statement on Galaxy S8 launch. Samsung traditionally launches new Galaxy S flagships at the Mobile World Congress and next year’s MWC takes place in February so it’s already quite early. Just how soon the launch could take place next year than MWC in February is anybody’s guess right now. For confirmation we have to wait for samsung’s official words.
