The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was announced just a few days back and is all set to go on sale starting from September 15 in the global markets. While the sale of this device is imminent, it looks like the rumors and speculations regarding the Galaxy S9 have started coming up.
It could be too early to speculate regarding the Galaxy S9 as it is slated to be launched in the first quarter of 2018. Now, a recent report that has hit the web from The Korea Herald has tipped that the Galaxy S9 could be launched in January, which is pretty earlier than the schedule. The report cites the prediction by the part makers for an advanced launch.
If the speculations are something that we should go by, Samsung will start shipping the OLED display panels for the smartphone by November. Since the panels will be shipped before the other accessories meant for the device, it is likely to happen two months before the projected launch of the device.
From the information that we have on hand right now, the Galaxy S9 is believed to be codenamed as Project Star. Also, the upcoming flagship smartphone is said to feature the QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with the same screen size and 18.5:9 aspect ratio as we saw on the Galaxy S8.
The recent reports have tipped that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will arrive with 4GB RAM, which is the same that we saw on the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. The report further states that the smartphone will also arrive with a dual camera setup at its rear as the Galaxy Note 8 came with such a camera arrangement. Besides these, the smartphone is likely to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and a modular design as well, claim the recent reports.
