Samsung Galaxy S8: Release date, price, specs

Samsung's next flagship smartphone will have to be the best one its ever produced.
Firstly, the South Korean company will have to overcome the disastrous rollout of the exploding Galaxy Note 7. And secondly, there's the small matter of the iPhone 7 to compete with.
Although it's unlikely that we'll see the next Samsung Galaxy phone much before March 2017, there are already supposed leaks showing up online.

Whilst Apple appears to refine and strip down its phones, Samsung appears to be going the other way. If the current crop of internet rumours are to be believed, the company will be throwing everything it has into its next blower.

Latest news

The most recent news regarding Samsung's next creation is to do with the processor chips inside the phones themselves.
A report on Samsung-watching site SamMobile hit on the fact that the S8 may include an Exynos 8895 processor coupled with a Mali-G71 GPU. According to the site, that means the new phone will be up to 1.8 times more powerful than the already-impressive Galaxy S7.
What's more, SamMobile echoes other sites that suggest the S8 will have a 5.2-inch 4K-capable display. The reason? Samsung's pushing heavily into virtual reality and having a powerful screen resolution means you can use the phone in VR headsets like the Samsung Galaxy Gear and Google Cardboard.

Release date

We might not know  anything concrete about the Galaxy S8 release date for months yet, but thankfully it's a relatively easy thing to predict.
Samsung's Galaxy phones have (since the S2 in 2011) been announced at or around the time of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona. It happens each year in late February or early March. This lets Samsung have its phones on the shelves by the end of March or, more likely, early April.
The 2017 Mobile World Congress event will take place from February 27 to March 2. Meaning we can expect a new Samsung announcement around February 26 or 27 next year.


As with Apple's iPhones, the Samsung Galaxy handsets have more or less plateaued when it comes to price. The current 32GB S7 comes in at £569 whilst the slightly larger S7 edge is £639. It's unlikely that Samsung's new phones will deviate too far from this kind of pricing. So you better start saving.

What could change things is if Samsung decides to offer multiple storage options. At the moment you can only get the S7 with 32GB of storage. If Samsung opts to increase this to 64GB or even 128GB the price could increase also.
However, the company could also keep the storage space as it is and instead include the capacity of the microSD card slot.


Aside from the aforementioned 4K screen, there are a few rumours circulating about what kind of power the S8 may have under the bonnet.
Samsung's cameras have been exceptionally good recently, but the proliferation of dual-lens snappers from the likes of Apple, Huawei and LG may inspire it to follow suit. According to tech site Trusted Reviews , Samsung is indeed planning to include dual-lens cameras in its next phone.
