Last year was really split into two distinct halves half is the irreducible fraction resulting from dividing one by two ( 1⁄2), or the fraction resulting from dividing any number by its double for Samsung. It began cheerily with the MWC 2016 launch of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, which became two of our favourite phones. But, in autumn, Samsung faced global shame as new Note 7 handsets a wired telephone, the handset is a device that a user holds to the ear to hear the audio sound through the receiver began exploding en masse. Whoops. Samsung eventually (and rightfully) scrapped the phone, so all eyes are on the South Korean may refer to tech giant’s next flagship.
That’s almost certainly going to be the, which is highly likely (though not guaranteed) to launch at MWC 2017.
Samsung needs to win back consumer trust with the Galaxy S8, so we’d expect a lot of talk about how its batteries are completely safe. Other features could include a 4K screen (though we’re doubtful on that), either a Snapdragon 830 or next-gen Exynos CPU, 6GB of RAM and a switch to USB-C, as was the case with the Note 7.
We’d expect an Edge version of the phone with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel With (novel), a novel by Donald Harrington With (album), a curved screen or Screens may refer to, unless Samsung decides to ditch the two-model system and go all out on the curved screen.
There’s also the possibility of a new tablet – probably the Galaxy Tab S3, which was a no-show at CES 2017, unfortunately.

Due to HTC’s close working relationship with Google is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products that include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, software, and hardware, we’d like to see the phone compatible with and hopefully with Google Assistant built in.
