Samsung to start testing the Galaxy S8 in January
Samsung will start testing the long-awaited Galaxy S8 in January, reveals The Investor. The South Korean company is still gauging a specific launch date, but multiple suppliers revealed to the publication that they’ve been instructed to provide an initial batch of their parts in January, then prepare to begin distributing the full volume of supplies in February.
This news comes just one day after The Wall Street Journal reported that the Galaxy S8, which is expected to ship with a beefed-up virtual assistant and a dedicated AI hardware button, will not be ready in time for its anticipated February release as Samsung’s reportedly going to conduct thorough tests on the unit to ensure that it doesn’t meet the same fate as the Galaxy Note 7.
The WSJ expects the Galaxy S8 to see the light of day in April.Source
