The news follows Samsung's explanation of the battery problems that caused the Galaxy Note 7 to explode. The company has put procedures in place to prevent the same issues from happening with the S8.
According to Reuters, Samsung mobile chief Koh Dong-jin told reporters that the Galaxy S8 would not launch at MWC this year in a press briefing.
Koh said the Galaxy S8 would not be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona beginning Feb. 27, the traditional forum for Galaxy S series launches. He did not comment on when the company planned to launch the handset, though analysts expect it to start selling by April.
Recently, an alleged photo of the Galaxy S8 was leaked which has smaller bezels and no physical Home button. Check out the photo here.
The S8 will be the primary competitor to the iPhone 7 and the next generation iPhone expected to launch in September. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
