Not long after the Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued, rumors about an early release for the Galaxy S8 started surfacing. It was said that Samsung would seek to contain the fallout of the Galaxy Note 7 debacle by releasing the Galaxy S8 earlier than initially planned but now the company is setting the record straight. Samsung has ruled out an early release for the Galaxy S8.

A report out of Korea today cites a high-ranking Samsung official who said that “Currently we do not have any plans to release Galaxy S8 early.” The official also added that Samsung already had a separate plan for the Galaxy S8 even before the Galaxy Note 7 was announced, saying that “Pushing release date forward all of sudden is something that is realistically impossible.”

Samsung normally launches new Galaxy S smartphones at Mobile World Congress so this should put to rest rumors about an early launch. The company is most likely going to unveil the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017 which takes place in February next year. Word on the street is that the Galaxy S8 is going to bring some major improvements, including but not limited to a 4K display and 6GB of RAM.
