Leaked MWC '17 invite shows no changes to Galaxy S8 launch schedule

Peter, 10 October 2016

The fate of the Galaxy Note7 is unclear as Samsung stopped production (again) to investigate reports of self-immolating units (again). This led to speculation that the Galaxy S8 launch will be pulled up to fill the gap.

If this invite to next year's Barcelona is to be believed, it's business as usual for the S flagship - a Samsung Unpacked event at the MWC on February 26. Of course, that's months away and it's unlikely that the PR team has prepared the invites this early.

We hope the rumors are true, though, we definitely don't want Samsung to rush the Galaxy S8 - get it right the first time. The Note7 is, in a way, undergoing a second recall - not an official one (yet), but US carriers have started exchanging it for other phones.
