A new report has been surfaced online in Korea, suggesting that the Samsung’s next device, Galaxy S9, will be announced in January next year. Similar thing happened before with the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, when the company have only introduced them in January this year. Now, from the source we hear that the company wants to speed up the things a little bit. They have plans to announce the devices at the end of January, and immediately release it in mid-February.
The info that we have, is actually provided by the companies that are making parts for the Samsung’s next flagship devices. The development of the S9’s display has already begun, even earlier than expected. The device has also its own codename, as every other Samsung device that has been made before. The Galaxy S9’s codename is ‘Star’. We also had rumors and leaks about the Galaxy S8 last year, even many days that it came out in March this year. It was also expected then, that the Galaxy S8 will arrive sooner than expected. But, according to the competition that Samsung has with Apple, maybe the clutch moment for them will be if they release the device earlier than expected.
The Galaxy S9 has been a target of leaks and rumors recently for so many times. Among the leaks about the design and the release date of it, we also have some suggest about its features. According to the recent rumors, the Galaxy S9 should feature a Snapdragon 8456 SoC by Qualcomm. In addition to that, 4GB of RAM should be available with 64GB of internal storage. As for some variation of the Galaxy S9, the device might be boosted up to 6GB of RAM. The screen display should be the same, an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Also, a recent report from KGI suggests that the Galaxy S9 will also support dual-camera setup on the back side of the device, which will most likely be similar to the Galaxy Note 8.
