Yes, as early as now, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is having a spark of rumor on the date of its release next year. It’s February 26. So it’s rightful to say that the next big thing for Samsung is just around the corner. Less than 6 months to go.

Mobile World Congress starts on February 27 and the day before the launch of the Galaxy S8 is almost credible since Samsung also did this when it launched the Galaxy S7 the day before MWC 2016. Will it happen again next year, it is a big probability.

It also comes from a somewhat reputable source. @Ricciolo1 tweeted the news and while they’re not as prolific as some leakers, they accurately predicted the Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge launch date. According to the leaker’s tweets, this date is confirmed, and it’s the date we were predicting anyway, so you can probably safely put it in your calendar.

We’ve also heard a lot of rumors about the specs and features of the S8, including the possibility of a dual-lens camera, which is now looking more likely, as two new trademark registrations, spotted by galaxyclub.nl, describe a ‘LightUp Camera’ and ‘Light+ Camera’, designed to enhance the brightness and clearness of images taken in low-light environments.

Secondary sensors are often included to capture more light, so there’s a good chance that these registrations are for a secondary sensor, and while the Galaxy S8 isn’t mentioned, use with smartphones and tablets is, so Samsung’s next flagship is a prime candidate.
