It is official Samsung will not be releasing the Galaxy S8 ahead of schedule. It was an interesting thought that Samsung may once again rush production of the S8 to compensate for the loss that was the Note 7. However it wouldn't be very prudent to rush another device after the most recent disaster. According to "ETNews" a Samsung official was quoted as saying, "Currently we do not have any plans to release Galaxy S8 early." and went on to say, "Pushing release date forward all of sudden is something that is realistically impossible.".
We still don't know what caused the Note 7 explosions, and neither does Samsung. Samsung has even delayed the production of the S8 to figure out exactly what caused the issue before moving forward with the S8 potentially causing another disaster. We will likely see Samsung stay on schedule announcing the device just ahead of Mobile World Congress in February.
