Samsung’s Galaxy S8 was a very important phone for the company, and one that got a lot of people excited to check it out. However, recent sales reports claimed that Samsung’s major release for the year wasn’t breaking records and rather, it was falling behind compared to its predecessor. Today, Samsung’s President of Mobile Communications came out to refute those reports.

Koh further confirmed some more details on the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 launch. Previous reports have pinned a launch event on August 23rd. Koh confirmed that Samsung does indeed have plans for an August launch, but neglected to give a specific date. An official timetable for the phone’s release will be specified at that time.
