Ever since Galaxy Note 7 was introduced, the battery fiasco continues, which was also seen with Galaxy Note 8. The battery jinx is still plaguing as in Note 8 the battery refuses to charge after it becomes zero. Amidst this, the South Korean tech conglomerate has been reportedly working on 2018 flagship device: dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+.
The latest news reveals the model numbers of both Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ which has been spotted on the US-based, FCC listing. The Federal Communication Commission or FCC has officially confirmed the existence of both the devices with model numbers. Appeared in the listing, the model numbers are SM-G960U, SMG960U1, SM-G960W and SM-G960XU.
While the first model number refers to the U.S. unlocked variant of the Samsung phone, the second identifies the version for the Canadian market. The first model number comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. The fourth model number, G960XU, is a demo unit, reports GizmoChina. The LTE band charts of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ has also appeared alongside the model numbers. In 2018, there’s a single name, i.e. the SM-G96XU, which is for all brands such as the UMTS, CDMA, LTE, and GSM.
Unfortunately, there’s no revelation in terms of key specs of both the devices. To recall, we informed that the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and S9 will be unveiled at the MWC 2018. We had spotted one device on GeekBench.
We loved the design philosophy which Samsung is reported to retain with these devices.
The price tags, however, are yet to be public. The leaked pair of cases also indicates that both the devices the Infinity Display design, meaning it would come with a pretty cool 85% screen-to-body ratio. Certain news also indicates that the smartphones may ditch the 3.5mm audio jack. However, nothing has been made official, so one may stick to us for more details about Samsung 2018 flagship smartphones.
