It was becoming quite confusing when it came to rumors about the upcoming Galaxy S8's launch date, but the OEM itself has stepped in and cleared up a large chunk of the confusion. Dong-jin Koh, the chief of Samsung Mobiles has confirmed publicly that the S8 won't be launched at the MWC this year. It has always been Samsung's tradition to unveil its next Galaxy S series of smartphones in Barcelona, at the Mobile World Congress that's held in February every year. However, it seems like Samsung won't be able to stay true to that tradition this year around. This information was retrieved while Dong-jin Koh publicly announced the findings of Samsung's probe into the Galaxy Note 7 disaster.

Unfortunately though, he did not clarify anything about when the Galaxy S8 will actually be unveiled. In order to figure out that bit of information, we will have to depend on rumors once again. There are multiple rumors, but the latest ones suggest that the smartphone will be unveiled in New York, at an exclusive Samsung event on March 29. The S8 will allegedly go on sale after roughly three weeks from the launch date (April 15 - 17).

Owning a low-end smartphone is never pleasant, it doesn't matter which Android smartphone manufacturer you choose to be honest, but it never feels nice to report that an OEM has officially stopped supporting one of its handsets. Samsung has just updated its security updates page and among other things, Android Police found that the Galaxy A3 (2016), Galaxy J1 (2016) and Galaxy J3 (2016) has been removed from the update page, signaling that the three handsets from two years ago are no longer supported.

In case you are wondering what that means, it basically means that if you own any of these three smartphones, it's time to think about buying something else because they will likely not be receiving anymore updates of any kind from the OEM. Sad as it may be for owners of these models, it was expected, given that Samsung doesn't support any of its low-end models, post the two-year mark. At the same time, the Galaxy A8 (2018), Galaxy A8+ (2018), Galaxy J2 (2018), and Galaxy Tab Active2 were the latest additions to the update page.
