Samsung celebrates two Unpacked events per year. The first part of the Mobile World Congress trade show, where for years they take advantage to introduce new models of the Galaxy S range, while the second focuses on the second half of the year, usually in September, although for a couple of years they have advanced to August, and here is where announced its series Galaxy Note. However, on this occasion the move has not left them well due to defective batteries of the new Galaxy Note 7, It forced the company to halt sales.
‘batterygate’ could leave you at Samsung by 1,000 million dollars, but in addition to the economic cost, the reputation of the trade mark can also exit seriously injured and, according to analysts, a way to avoid major damage would be to anticipate the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S8, a device that, at least for now, kept his reputation intact.
An opportunity to repair the damage?
Sales of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 were arrested earlier this month and currently the company is asking all users to go to the enabled channels in order to receive a new totally secure unit. However, despite the rapid response of the company, It will be difficult for that Note 7 is seen as the flagship that was meant to be until it exploded this whole affair, never better said.
Still it is too early to know details of the Samsung Galaxy S8, and less if we talk about the date of presentation, but already analysts firm KB Investment & Securities believe the South Korean brand would have a opportunity to repair the damage caused by the problems of Note 7 if the Galaxy S8 comes forward. “Apart from when resumption of sales, launching a new model of high end ahead of schedule is shaping up as the most realistic solution to deal with the current crisis”, says Kim Sang-pyo.
As we said, for years the Galaxy S had been announced in the prelude to the fair Mobile World Congress, which next year will be held between February 27 and March 2, so la more likely date would be February 26, long as Samsung maintained its usual calendar.
Currently there is no date on the table, but anticipate the launch could stand to the Galaxy S8 closer to another important technological event, the exhibition CES which is held in January. However, we insist that it is too soon for details on the release date, although it emerged some clues about the terminal, specifically your model number.
The history of superstition after the may number of the S8 model
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has already set the duckling in the world of the rumor mill at one than another chance and, according to SamMobile, on Samsung refer to its next flagship as a “Dream Project”.
The initial tracks suggest that there will be two models with curved screen that would be Dream and Dream 2 and now possible both model numbers have been leaked. The Dream would be the smaller version that probably would have a 5.1-inch panel and your code would be SM-G950, while the larger model would have 5.5-inch screen and is known as the SM-G955. The curious thing about this code is that the current S7 corresponds to the SM-G930 code, so, confirmed, Samsung would be jumping the number 4.
The skip numbers we sound since they recently did with Note 7, but this was for reasons of unifying ranges. In this case, skip the number four would have to do with a common superstition in some Asian countries called Tetraphobia and why four is the number of bad luck. In fact, many buildings in the country replaced the fourth floor with a F or directly to remove it.
