According to rumors, Samsung is willing to launch Samsung Galaxy S8 earlier than what it has planned to make a patch up for the most unfortunate galaxy Note 7 fiasco.

But it needs to be mentioned here that the Galaxy S8 firmware development schedule does not support that. Samsung started working on Galaxy S7 firmware around this time last year and unveiled it in late February this year. If we consider the same schedule for Samsung Galaxy S8 too, then the similar launch is expected to be around the end of the Feb 2017.

It is believed that Samsung will unveil the launch of its next flagship galaxy S8 at MWC 2017 in Barcelona on Feb 26. Other rumors say that Samsung Galaxy S8 will have two variants.
