For years, Mobile World Congress (MWC), the mobile-focused tech show that takes place at the end of each February in Barcelona, has been the king of smartphone unveilings. We’ve seen companies like HTC, LG, and Sony use it as a launching platform for upcoming flagships. We’ve also seen it used time and time again by Samsung to unveil the next in the Galaxy S line. This year, though, that won’t happen.
Samsung confirmed after its Galaxy Note 7 investigation press conference that the Galaxy S8 won’t be shown off to the public at MWC. Instead, Samsung will use the extra time to “regain consumer trust,” Samsung mobile chief Koh Dong-jin told reporters.
Rumors in recent weeks have suggested that Samsung may host a special event in either March or April to launch the Galaxy S8. None of that has been confirmed and likely won’t be for weeks.
