The world’s third biggest smartphone maker according to new reports, last year had a rough ending after many Samsung Galaxy Note 7 holders reported their phablets exploding in flames. However, the smartphone makers are seeking to put behind one of the biggest product safety failures in tech history as it prepares to launch the Galaxy S8. As many thought that the flagship was to be launched at the upcoming MWC 2017, the South-Korean giants had to skip the event and unveil the Galaxy S8 Models at on March 29th as they are believed to go on sale on April 21st globally.
Last week reports according to a Chinese tipster revealed that a 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage Galaxy S8 model will hit the Chinese and South Korean markets first before going global, besides the rumored 4 GB RAM/64 GB ROM variant.
