Samsung has already confirmed that it will be unveiling the next Galaxy flagship at the Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event scheduled for March 29th in New York. While the event day is not too far, there is a new report suggesting it might take longer for people to get their hands on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
The report claims that Samsung has delayed the Galaxy S8 global release by one week to April 28th. It means there will be a gap of one month from the time Samsung unveils the flagship to the time it will actually go on sales. While the actual reason for the delay is unknown, the reliable tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) believes that it could be due to the low yield of 10nm processors which are Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 for the Galaxy S8.
Sounds like low yields on the 10nm SoCs (SD835/EX8895) powering S8 could be the main reason for the sched change. LG looking smarter today. https://t.co/rsRzut3Oav

This indeed appears to be a legit reason for the delay because whatever happened with the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung would not want a repeat of that in the future.
In other leaks and rumors, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been leaked in a bunch of real-life images. These newly leaked images show the Galaxy S8 in Black color variant and they do look gorgeous. You can notice the almost bezel-less display which also happens to be the Always On display.
Finally, we have rumors related to the alleged Galaxy S8 colors and pricing information. It claims that Samsung will be releasing the next flagship Galaxy S8 in Black, Silver, and Violet color options. As for pricing, the Galaxy S8 is said to cost €799 (about Rs. 56,346) and the Galaxy S8 Plus for €899 (Rs. 63,398).
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be out in Black, Silver and Violet (!) colors, retail listings show. S8 priced at 799, S8+ at 899 Euro.

But all of these rumors are at the moment which is the reason we would suggest you to take them with a pinch of salt.
