We recently heard a rumor that the new Samsung Galaxy S9 would be launching earlier than normal next year. Recent rumors have suggested that the handset will be made official at a press conference at Mobile World Congress in February.
Samsung just announced that it has started mass production of its second generation 10nm process, this is the process that will be used to produce their new Samsung Exynos 9810 processor which we are expecting to see in the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus handsets.
Samsung will also launch another version of the handsets that will feature the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Samsung are expected to have exclusive on this processor at launch. We also heard recently that the design of the new Galaxy S9 handsets will be similar to that of the Galaxy S8 range.
The handsets are said to come with the same size displays as the S8 and S8 Plus, although they will have slimmer bezels. We are also expecting to see more RAM in the new handsets and there could be a 6GB model and an 8GB model of these new flagships.
Samsung normally launch their new flagships at a press event in March or April, the company has apparently decided that a February launch at Mobile World Congress is a good idea for 2018. That would mean that the new Galaxy S9 will go on sale some time in March. We have also heard rumors of another version of the handset, the Galaxy S9 Mini, although this many launch at a later date.
