The Snapdragon 845-powered units of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will be sold in the US and China, as was the case with the majority of Samsung’s previous Android flagships, older reports suggested. The devices aimed at other markets are said to sport the Exynos 9810, Samsung’s latest system-on-chip which the company unceremoniously announced in November.
The new Exynos-branded silicon is expected to improve on the firm’s Adaptive Fast Charging, though it’s currently unclear how will the new technology fare against Quick Charge 4.0 which is sometimes stylized as Quick Charge 4+.
According to Qualcomm’s own list, the Galaxy S8 uses Quick Charge 2.0. No mention of the Galaxy Note 8, though.
According to previous reports, Samsung’s upcoming premium device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC which has yet to be officially introduced by the chipmaker and the Galaxy S9 Plus will supposedly offer 6GB of RAM along with a minimum of 64GB of on-board memory.
Recent rumors also had it that the Galaxy S9 flagship series will feature a thinner bottom bezel and Samsung’s Infinity Display panel with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9, as well as a QHD+ resolution. Additionally, the Galaxy S9 is said to include a 5.8-inch display, while the Galaxy S9 Plus will supposedly have a 6.2-inch screen.
Samsung is likely to unveil the phone either during the Mobile World Congress in February, or at its own press conference in March. Check Galaxy S9 full roundup here.
