It seems like only yesterday that the Samsung Galaxy S7 was launched, yet there is already talk of the Galaxy S8 online. The newest generation of the Samsung Galaxy tends to come out near the start of each year, leading people to think that the S8 will probably be with us in February or March of 2017.
