No Samsung Galaxy S8 expected at Mobile World Congress

Samsung has told Reuters it will not unveil its new flagship Galaxy S smartphone range at Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year.

For the past three years, Samsung has unveiled a new flagship device at MWC.

The company recently announced its new, stricter quality assurance guidelines, including an 8-point battery safety check, which may be a cause for the delay.

Rumours around the launch of the Galaxy S8 suggest that it will feature an all-screen design, no headphone jack, and an AI assistant that may be activated with a dedicated button.

According to The Verge, the reveal of Samsung’s new Galaxy S range of smartphones may happen in April 2017.
