Last month, the first rumors about what to expect from Samsung’s upcoming flagship Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones began to swirl, and with it came a tantalizing detail: the devices could show up as early as CES for a sneak preview.

But a new statement from a Samsung spokesperson in The Korea Herald is casting doubt on that appearance, with a representative saying that “it is unlikely” that the S9 will be at CES. That said, the statement is an unusual choice of language that may imply that Samsung hasn’t quite made up its mind yet about previewing the new phones, which is strange as CES is just a few weeks away.

As a reminder, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are expected to be a more iterative update on the S8 featuring Qualcomm’s just-announced Snapdragon 845 processor, with a rumored March 2018 release window.
