Galaxy S8 leaks may end here as Note 7 investigation wraps up

If Samsung’s mobile chief can have his way, you likely won’t have much information to go on about the Galaxy S8 from here on out.

In an email obtained by The Korea Herald, — we can feel the irony here — Dong-jin Koh wrote to his employees:

I feel deeply regretful to hear news of the recent attempts at data breach and prototype leak […] Samsung had a bitter experience due to the leak of important data — on product design and business strategies — to China and consequently suffered damages in the past.

Koh is urging his division to redouble security and cork in any information spills. All we’ve heard about so far from the rumor mill is that there will be a 5.7-inch variant alongside a 6.2-inch one. Both will feature dual-curve “edge” screens, an iris scanner and super-low-bezel, over-sized screens. Other features include stereo speakers and USB-C.

Samsung is also claimed to have just finished its investigation on the cause of explosions that accounted for the total recall of the Galaxy Note 7 and is passing along results to Korea Testing Laboratory, United Laboratories and other outside firms.
