There have been quite a lot of leaks this month alone relating to Samsung’s next flagship, the Galaxy S8. Today what we have comes from Samsung itself and it has to do with the launch of the phone.

The company’s mobile chief DJ Koh told Reuters today that the Galaxy S8 will not be announced during Mobile World Congress which is slated to hold between February 27 and March 2. While not giving a launch date, chances are that earlier rumors about the device being unveiled in late March might be true since MWC will have been wrapped up by then.
