Samsung Galaxy S8 rumors suggest no early launch, despite Note 7 drama

The alleged Samsung Galaxy S8 could be officially released on February 26, according to the latest rumor.

A February release date for Samsung’s next Galaxy S device wouldn’t be unprecedented. Both the Galaxy S7 and s6 were revealed at Mobile World Congress earlier this year and in 2015, respectively. To be clear however, Samsung has yet to confirm any details about the S8’s reveal, but if this trend continues, we should expect to see the new Galaxy S unveiled during the next conference at the end of February 2017.

However, this goes against previous speculation that Samsung would reveal the device early due to the Note 7 recall. For the past week, Samsung has been dealing with a recall that just wont end. After a Note 7 first exploded in September, the company quickly pulled units from store shelves and began replacing them for customers. However, reports have surfaced that even the replacement headsets are exploding. To make matters worse, major retailers and carriers are discontinuing sales of all Note 7 devices. This has caused Samsung to “adjust” its production of the Note 7 entirely.


The rumor circulates from a tweet by @Ricciolo1, an Italian mobile tipster who predicted the launch dates of phones such as the Sony Xperia X Compact, as well as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Despite the fact that Ricciolo states his claim has been “confirmed,” it should still be regarded as a rumor. Additionally, the image attached does not seem to be an official MWC graphic and has Ricciolo’s Twitter handle in the corner.

In the absence of any official word by Samsung, the Galaxy S8 (assuming it is even called the “S8”) rumors are flowing steadily. This includes various speculations on what type of hardware the upcoming device will include, and what it will not.

Samsung did not immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.
