If you are a Samsung Galaxy fan and you still have not upgraded to S8 and Galaxy Note 8, you may want to wait a few months more. Samsung is pushing devices like a meat packer and some reports suggest that the next version of S series flagship will arrive as soon as the January of next year.
The Investor has reported that Samsung is to import OLED panels for its Display units built in November 2017. Galaxy S8 was launched in March this year.
Galaxy S9 is codenamed as “Star” and it will come with a dual-camera setup just like the recently launched Galaxy Note 8. It is to take the flagship ahead. However, such a hurry has a drawback too: the Galaxy S9 is missing the integrated in-display fingerprint scanner because the company will not be able to develop the technology that fast.
So, for now, there begins the chain of speculation. Galaxy S9 is said to be powered by the yet-to-be-announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, while the Infinity Display will be there like on the Galaxy S8. This South Korean premium smartphone venture is further speculated to come with advanced screen coating to actively repel water and lift the bars. As little we know about the specs, there is a recent report by XDA Developers that S9 may come with 4GB RAM and new Android 8.0 Oreo.
Considering Galaxy S series is the flagship series of Samsung and is one of the most popular in the smartphone market, it will be interesting to see how Samsung tops the success of its S8 and S8 Plus, both of which, apart from fingerprint sensor have received a good praise.
