On Thursday, South Korea's Electronic Times cited an unnamed source who revealed that Samsung Electronics has set an initial production target of 10 million Galaxy S8 smartphones on production.

The S8 is considered as Samsung's way of recovering from the losses brought by the scrapping of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone last year due to its product safety failures.

The company has yet to reveal the reason why some Note 7 units caught fire on their own.

The newspaper also reported that Samsung will begin production in March and plans to sell the phone in April. Last year, Galaxy S7 was put on sale in March.

Samsung did not comment regarding the article.
