Galaxy S8 launch event will be hosted by Samsung’s mobile chief
Samsung is going to unveil the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus later this week on March 29 and the company has now confirmed that the event is going to be hosted by Samsung Electronics’ mobile business chief Dong-jin Koh. He was given this position last year and has since hosted the launch events for the company’s new flagship smartphones, including that for the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7.
Samsung’s flagship events are normally attended by quite a few executives and employees in order to celebrate the launch of a crucial product. However, due to the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco of last year, Koh is believed to have asked for fewer executives and employees at the event.
A Samsung official cited in the report claimed that “Koh has told most of the executives and employees to stay at their workplaces and to focus on quality control.”
Koh will be present on March 29 in New York to finally unveil the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, but it’s not like we don’t already know what the company has in store for us.
