Samsung has announced that they will unveil the Galaxy S8 and S8+ on March 29th at 11:00 AM EDT in New York. There are a lot of rumors about the upcoming phones floating around, and we pretty much know what to expect.




Earlier rumors suggested that the devices will be available on April 21st. However, it now appears that the Korean giant has postponed that date for a week.


Evan Blass tweeted that the new date for the release of the S8 duo is April 28th.



To be fair, Samsung hasn't announced the official release date, so we can't call this a delay in a real sense of the word. However, the leaks suggested that we are looking at April 21st, and now that date has been pushed back a week for an unknown reason.


We can only speculate that Samsung wants everything to be perfect when the highly-anticipated devices finally hit the markets considering their recent fiasco with the Note7.


The delay will make Samsung's main competitors happy, especially LG and Huawei, since they announced their flagships at MWC in Barcelona and those will soon hit the market.
