As you all may know, the Galaxy S8 has been the most leaked device in recent history. But it's not the first time this happens. It has happened to Apple, HTC, LG and even to Google with its Pixel phones.
Supposedly, companies hate leaks and want to prevent them. Other times, they just leak things themselves to get the media's attention. But there's a thin line between this and sometimes these companies act hypocritical. Other times it's obviously them leaking this stuff.
I know sometimes it ruins the whole anticipation, but other times it's what excites readers about new products and makes them buy it after released. Like the GS8, which will break sales records when released, or even the iPhone 6 and 7 which had leaked so much that even clones were on sale before they were released!
Some people look at us, the tech blogs, and think we are the evil guys here ruining companies' plans. But we are journalists, we have to report whatever pops up. Interestingly, I just read a poll on Samsung's fan club and they were asking what their readers thought about leaks. And the results were amazing. More than 60% of their readers support leaks.
So...what do you think guys? Are you in favor of leaks? Vote and leave a comment!
