Having said that, ahead of the official launch Samsung Galaxy duo has now appeared of FCC database. The flagship devices have passed through the certification site and we further have some idea of what to expect from the company's smartphones in 2018.

According to the listing, the smartphones seem to come with model numbers SM-G960 and SM-G965 for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus respectively. The listing gives us an idea that there will be several variants and will basically have model numbers ending with U, U1, W, or XU. To be more precise, U series will basically be for U.S. market, whereas U1 denotes unlocked models. Reportedly W suggests Canada, and XU is generally for demo units.

Further FCC ID also provides the full list of supported GSM, CDMA, LTE, and UMTS bands for the Galaxy S9 and here for the Galaxy S9 Plus. If you want to check you can visit here. However, it seems the Galaxy S9 duo will be supporting all major bands, irrespective of the carrier.

The FCC database has also given a diagram and it reveals that the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus features the FCC label in the exact same place as previous Galaxy models. So it will be on the back of the device at the bottom.

Interestingly, the FCC label notes that Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are manufactured in Vietnam. Coincidentally, the Galaxy S9 retail box that was leaked earlier was also by a Vietnamese publication. So the earlier leak holds some credibility we believe.

In any case, while the FCC listing doesn't reveal much about the devices themselves but it does indicate that Samsung is set to launch its smartphones in the coming days.
