Trending From Samsung This week

Every year for the past three, Samsung has

used the Mobile World Congress trade show in

Barcelona to unveil its latest Galaxy S

flagship phone. That won't be the case in

2017, however — the company's mobile head

DJ Koh tells Reuters that it won't have the

Galaxy S8 in tow.

Koh didn't give any further information on

when the phone actually will launch, but

Samsung certainly won't want to rush its

release following the manufacturing issues

that led to the Galaxy Note 7 debacle. Earlier

today the company detailed a new eight-step

safety check for batteries in future products;

upcoming Samsung phones will also be

designed with more space around the battery

and include new protective brackets.

The Galaxy S8 is variously rumored to feature

an "all-screen" design, a new AI assistant with

dedicated button , and no headphone jack . The

eventual unveiling is said to be planned for as

late as April.
