Samsung Galaxy S8 could appear at MWC after all

Samsung Galaxy S8 new concept

Samsung may yet unveil the much-anticipated Galaxy S8 smartphone at Mobile World Congress (MWC) later this month, despite previously declaring it would not launch the phone until after the event.

A report from the company’s home country of Korea claims that the Galaxy S8 will be teased in a short, sixty-second clip at the end of its press event, being held on 26th February, a day before MWC starts.

It’s unclear whether Samsung will share any specific details, but the video should go some way to stealing the limelight from rivals including LG, which is due to reveal its new G6 phone on the same day.

The Galaxy S8 is rumoured to be available in two versions: one with a 5.8–inch screen, the other 6.2–inches.

Recent leaks also suggest it'll have a special 18:9 display for widescreen viewing, a more powerful processor and a bezel–free design with a fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone.

The Galaxy S8 is due to launch officially at the end of March, before going on sale in late April.
