Samsung is yet to confirm when it’s going to show off its much-awaited next-generation flagship smartphone. It was previously expected to showcase the device at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, an annual event where it has unveiled new Galaxy S handsets in the past. It was later said that Samsung would unveil the device at a special event in New York instead come April 2017. The latest report out of South Korea suggests that Samsung just might unveil the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017 next month.

Samsung was previously expected to skip the MWC 2017 unveil in favor of a special event in New York. It was also claimed that the Galaxy S8 release date had been set at April 18th.

A report out of South Korea today claims that a MWC 2017 unveil for the Galaxy S8 is still possible. Samsung is reportedly going to produce a small number of Galaxy S8 handsets which will be shown off to the press and the public at the Mobile World Congress 2017 next month.

However, the report does mention that even though the company will unveil the device next month, it won’t be available for purchase until April since Samsung is expected to start mass production of the Galaxy S8 in March.

None of this has been officially confirmed by Samsung so take this with a dose of salt for now until there’s official word from the company.
