There isn’t much information revealed apart from the company has plans to unveil the next-gen Exynos chipset on January 4. The company announced the Exynos 9810 in November.
The new processor will come with significant upgrades over its predecessor, the Exynos 8895, which powered the Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note 8. The new processor will power the upcoming Galaxy S9, S9+ and the Note 9.
Samsung is reportedly planning to unveil its next flagship smartphone in February. People associated to the matter say, the company plans to release the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ as early as March.
The company launched the previous generation Galaxy S smartphones in March and were made available weeks later. The Galaxy S9 is said to have 4GB of RAM whereas the S9 + will sport 6GB of RAM.
The S9 will retain the design of the S8 but have completely new innards. It will retain the 5.8-inch Infinity Display panels from the present S8 lineup. However, it will have a completely new processor, new set of cameras and other new features.
Optics wise, the smartphone is expected to borrow the dual camera setup from the Galaxy Note 8, but will be placed vertically. All rumours will be put to rest when the company will announce the devices in February....
