The latest smartphone from Samsung is expected to be unveiled later today. The firm will launch the Galaxy S8 at events in New York and London, according to reports. Industry insiders say it will come in two sizes and will feature a larger screen.
Samsung will be hoping the S8 performs well after the company was forced to withdraw the Note 7 because of battery problems. Note 7s were made subject to a global recall in October after the phones were found to set themselves alight. The Note 7 issues are said to have cost Samsung more than £3bn.
The firm will sell refurbished versions of the Note 7 with a new battery in South Korea only, the country’s Electronic Times reported on Tuesday.
