The very latest reports now indicate that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 could release as early as January 2018. This will give it ample time to dominate the global smartphone market. This is also earlier than expected, as Samsung‘s flagship ‘S’ series go on sale around March every year. The reason behind the January 2018 release date could be due to the possible early procurement of the OLED display panels.
This report by The Korea Herald suggests that the January 2018 release date is very likely. We have only yesterday brought you the very latest on the Samsung Galaxy S9, including the fact that it could likely have the next-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. This will make it one of most powerful devices in recent memory.
Another, more premium, variant of the Galaxy S9, called the Samsung Galaxy S9+, is also likely to launch alongside the base variant. However, at least some of the Samsung Galaxy S9 could come with the Exynos 9810 SoC, which would make these devices come with two different variants.
The new Samsung Galaxy S9 will come up with a new QHD+ Super AMOLED display with the Infinity Display feature where the edges are rounded and the bezels reduced. These two features make for a superior display feature and will also have a better seamless display where the widescreen movies will also be more enjoyable. In fact, the new phones will have the same diagonal display size as the preceding Galaxy S8 and the Infinity Display will add to the viewing pleasure.
We expect that the new Samsung Galaxy S9 could come with 4GB of RAM, which is the same exact configuration as the preceding Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S8+, as well as Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Other features include a modular design on the Galaxy S9. Watch this space for more updates.
