Samsung Galaxy S8 announcement reportedly delayed to April 2017

Samsung was originally expected to announce the Galaxy S8 at an event at Mobile World Congress in February. That’s where it announced the Galaxy S7 last year. However, a new report claims the launch has been pushed back to April with a New York-based event.The reason for the alleged delay is simply that Samsung needs more time to get all its ducks in a row before launching a new phone following the Note 7 cancellation. That phone famously had a tendency to catch fire due to a battery fault of some sort.
