A China-based tipster has claimed on Weibo that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset will debut in Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. According to him, the initial stock of the aforementioned processor will be reserved for the Galaxy S9 duo. As of now, there is no way to find out the authenticity of this information. Usually, LG releases its flagship before anyone else.

We already know that LG G7 will be powered by Snapdragon 845. If we go by the Weibo user's claims, then the LG G7 will be introduced after the launch of Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.

Well, if you remember, last month a Samsung smartphone bearing the model number SM-G9650 was spotted on Geekbench. Notably, it was listed with sdm845, which is most likely to be the yet-to-be-announced flagship processor the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.

The Geekbench listing further revealed that the processor is a Quad-core one and it is clocked at 1.78GHz. So presumably, the smartphone was the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9.

Coming back to the Snapdragon 845 processor, it is said to be built on on a 7nm node. However, instead of Samsung, TSMC will make it. This is due to the fact that Samsung is shifting to 8nm.

Talking about the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, not much is known about them. Going by the rumors, the smartphone is codenamed as Start and its Plus variant is referred as Star 2.
