The Galaxy S8 won’t be making an appearance at MWC but it appears that there could be important information about the phone during the tech show. Samsung may announce the official launch date of the phone during the tech show. A few months ago, the phone was rumored to be part of the show but that changed when Samsung confirmed that it had been delayed. The news come from Phone Area, who cited The Korea Economic Daily. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is rumored to be debuting next month.

Samsung did not reveal an exact launch date after it was announced that the phone would not be at MWC. But Samsung’s mobile chief allegedly told reporters that he would reveal the official Galaxy S8 launch date at MWC. Samsung will still be at the tech show, where the company is rumored to be announcing the Galaxy Tab S3. The previous version of the tablet was released back in 2015 and from the recent media invite from the company, it appears that a tablet will be part of the event.

Samsung recently revealed the results of the Galaxy Note 7 investigation and is now preparing for its next big release, the Galaxy S8. The upcoming flagship will not be at MWC but it is good to hear that Samsung might announce the launch date there. Recent rumors have mentioned that the phone will be unveiled on March 29 and will be released the following month.

Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 at MWC and while it appears that the wait will be longer this time, tech fans are hoping a short video or some interesting information is revealed along with the official launch date. The Galaxy Tab S3 appears to be the big product that Samsung is planning to announce at the tech show, which will take place later this month in Barcelona.
