Samsung is currently working hard on the next flagship device, Samsung S8 after the whole Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. The company has faced a lot of flak for the exploding batteries even after the global recall.

Airline companies all over the world in addition to the aviation authorities of different countries have banned people from taking Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on the flight. The company even sent fire-proof boxes for users to return the devices safely.

It looks like the company is planning to leave the Note 7 issue behind and try to release the Galaxy S8 on time. It is expected to launch on February 26, 2017. A teaser poster was posted on Twitter by user Ricciolo1 for the "Samsung Unpacked" event.

In addition to the leak of the event launch poster, a video was posted on the Chinese micro-blogging website, Weibo detailing the specs of Samsung Galaxy S8. S8 will sport a 5.5-inch 4K Super AMOLED Display with 806-ppi pixel density while being powered by Exynos 8895 processor. The device will be equipped with 6GB RAM along with a 16MP and 8MP dual camera setup on the back.

According to reports by ETNews Korea, S8 will do away with the signature home button and the processor will be manufactured using the newly 10-nm manufacturing process. Samsung will be producing Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 using the same process so we can expect to see the second variant with Snapdragon 830.

However, we are not sure if the company has started its work because a recent report stated the Samsung engineers would start work on the next flagship after two weeks. During the two weeks, the engineers will work on eliminating the battery flaw that plagued Samsung Galaxy Note 7. This comes right after Samsung offered a new upgrade program to the customers who brought Samsung Note 7 in South Korea.
