Samsung Galaxy S8 Rumors

Even though Samsung won't officially announce the Samsung Galaxy S8 at MWC next month, it hasn't stopped the rumor mill and we are slowly getting more and more details on the next version of the Galaxy lineup. Once again we are still hearing that there will be a headphone jack, the screen design will be "bezel-less", and it will feature a desktop dock connection. The desktop dock connection is a new one, however, it is something that a few other phone makers have been playing with as the idea of dropping your phone into a dock and getting "desktop" functionality is quite appealing. The Galaxy S8 will of course be Android-based so the desktop functionality may be a little limited, but if Samsung can pull it off better than the other have been able to so far they might have a winner. The Verge has more on this story.

Information about the upcoming Galaxy S8 keeps leaking out at a steady pace, and now The Guardian has published a considerable amount of info on the phone gleaned from unnamed sources. First off, the phone is supposed to be announced in late March, and then will ship in April, which matches other rumors we'd heard that the phone won't show up at MWC this year.

More controversially, The Guardian claims the S8 will have a headphone jack, citing "several sources," which contradicts a report from December that it would not. The new report does agree with the rumors about the "all-screen" design reported by Bloomberg last year.
