  Samsung Electronics to reveal Galaxy Note 7 probe results this month: JoongAng Ilbo Samsung Electronics Co Ltd will announce this month the results of an investigation into what caused some of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones to catch fire, the JoongAng Ilbo newspaper reported on Monday citing unnamed sources. The South Korean firm said in October it was examining all aspects of the phone, suggesting there may be a combination of factors that contributed to one of the costliest product safety failures in tech history.The world's top smartphone maker warned of a $5.1 billion hit to its operating profit over three quarters following its decision to permanently halt Galaxy Note 7 sales in October.

Samsung has managed to generate a fair degree of buzz around its upcoming Galaxy S8 handset, but as leaked pictures of the alleged device continue to stack up – it seems we’re yet to see one that looks authentic.

BGR has obtained yet another image which purportedly shows the new S8, but things seem fishy right off the bat.

As the publication explains, the photo is a render developed by popular third-party smartphone case manufacturer Ghostek, which makes accessories for iPhone and Galaxy smartphones. The mock-up shows the alleged S8 wrapped around one of the company’s waterproof cases.

Here’s the image as obtained by BGR:

Samsung will 'soon' reveal the cause of Galaxy Note 7 fires

  Samsung will 'soon' reveal the cause of Galaxy Note 7 fires <p>Samsung might finally be ready to bring the Galaxy Note 7's fiery story to a close. The company opened up its CES keynote with a promise that it would "soon" report on the root cause of the Note 7's battery fires. That's not exactly a clear timetable, but it indicates that Samsung is finally close to an answer -- important when the tech giant has been stumped for months. And when South Korean newspaper JoongAng Ilbo cited sources claiming that Samsung would shed light on the issue in January, "soon" may be a matter of a few weeks.</p>Whenever an explanation arrives, it likely won't come soon enough.

While the render showcases a design that aligns closely with previous rumors, including a curved screen with little bezels and a missing home button, the mock-up resembles previous reports awfully closely – almost as if it was designed according to the rumors in question.

BGR remarks it is not unusual for third-party case-makers to receive details about unreleased handsets in advance in order to stock up accessories ahead of official launches. The publication further adds that an undisclosed source said that the render is indeed based on data acquired from factories that produce Samsung devices, but it readily admits it hasn’t been able to confirm these claims.

Which brings me to my main point: Assuming the sourced data is indeed accurate, the only thing this render could legitimately tell us about the upcoming S8 is its dimensions. The rest is merely speculation.

Samsung To Launch Galaxy S8, S8 Edge, S8 Plus In 2017?

  Samsung To Launch Galaxy S8, S8 Edge, S8 Plus In 2017? Samsung might launch not one, but three variants of its flagship device, the Galaxy S8, in 2017, according to a report.If we go by the tradition the company has followed since the S4, we might even see a Galaxy S8 Active by the end of 2017.

Much like last week’s alleged leak of the S8, I’m hesitant to call the the render an accurate reflection of the real thing. Given how secretive Samsung has been with its forthcoming handset, the possibility that Ghostek managed to get its hands on such sensitive information is highly unlikely.

The mobile behemoth is expected to unveil its new Galaxy S8 in the first half of 2017, but reports diverge as to when the exact date might be. While initial rumors suggested Samsung could reveal the handset at Mobile World Congress in February, more recent reports hint at a delayed launch in April as well as the possibility of an early limited release in February or March.

So as long as Samsung continues to maintain radio silence about the launch of its flagship Galaxy S8, your guess is as good as ours.

Samsung Galaxy S8 May Have LG G6-Like Thermal Pipe Design .
The South Korean rivals are expected to showcase their upcoming devices at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona in February.LG confirmed its thermal pipe design last week and now Samsung is also expected to follow suit, according to the report. While neither LG nor Samsung has revealed the nitty-gritties of the technology, it is essentially a smartphone design that has built-in thermal pipes which keep chipsets and other components cool. Thermal pipes are sealed copper tubes containing a liquid that turns into steam and dissipates, absorbing a significant amount of heat from the source. The technology has been widely used in laptops and desktop computers.
