The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are expected only late in the first quarter of 2018, but the development will undoubtedly be on its way. For Samsung, the Galaxy S8 Series was a great success this year and, on the basis of these new rumors, their successors seem to take a step in the right direction.
Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will both feature 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space, known industry insider Benjamin Geskin said earlier this week, in addition to sharing what are alleged to be the official logos of the two devices which Samsung is expected to introduce early next year.
The low-resolution renders indicate that the Galaxy S9 Plus will once again be stylized as the Galaxy S9+ and add more credence to recent reports that the South Korean original equipment manufacturer will debut exactly two additions to its high-end Android phone series in 2018, as was the case in the last few years.
Galaxy S9 and S9+ will feature a microSD card slot, according to the same source, though it remains to be seen whether Samsung makes them capable of supporting capacities over 256GB.
Geskin also claims that the models meant to be sold in China and the United States will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, whereas those intended for other markets will feature the Exynos 9 Octa, another rumored silicon that still hasn’t been officially announced and is alleged to be built on the 10nm process node.
The insider provided no more details on the matter, though it’s likely that Samsung will also debut some more premium Galaxy S9 models with double the storage space seeing how this year’s Galaxy Note 8 phablet is already available with 256GB of flash memory in select markets like South Korea.
The Galaxy S8 was an exception for Samsung, which was forced to unveil it in late March. In previous years, Samsung scheduled press conferences at the Mobile World Congress to announce the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7. That’s usually a late February or early March affair. Will the Galaxy S return to MWC next year? Or will Samsung launch it even earlier than that?
There will be many reports and rumors in the coming days bringing us information about expected Galaxy S9 features, leaked renders and improvements. Let’s see. Stay tune for more..
