Samsung has reportedly started working on the successors of this year's flagship phones aka the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. The South Korean smartphone manufacturer is expected to announce the devices, which are going to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ by mid-2018. At least that's what the rumours suggest. Rumours about the upcoming flagship phones by Samsung have already started flooding in. Earlier this week, an industry insider -- Benjamin Geskin leaked some key information about the phones.
Benjamin said that the devices will come 6 gigs of RAM. There is no official information on the Galaxy S9 and S9+ by Samsung as of now. Apart from sporting 6GB of RAM memory, Benjamin further said that the two flagship phones are going to the first by the company to be backed by Snapdragon 845 processor. This is no new information, as some rumours that were leaked earlier suggested the same as well. Although, there is no official information by Qualcomm on Snapdragon 845 as of yet. This was first reported by Android Headlines.
To recall, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ were the first phones to be powered by Snapdragon 835. Samsung partnered with Qualcomm to take away the first slot of the Snapdragon 835. Similar can be the case with the Galaxy S9 and S9+. However, the Snapdragon 845 of the S9 and S9+ may not come to India. Reports suggest, just like the S8 and S8+, Samsung may bring Exynos 9 Octa edition of the phones to the Indian market and Snapdragon 845 model will only hit the Chinese market.
Benjamin further noted that the two phones that are expected to launch next year may come with 128GB of internal storage. Apart from the 128GB storage, Samsung is also expected to announce 256GB variant of the S9 and S9+. This means that Samsung may launch two variants of the upcoming flagship devices. He also leaked the official logos of the two devices. However, the 256GB variant may only hit the select markets like South Korea and not India.
Not much is known about the devices as of yet, apart from the fact that these devices are going to be much better than the S8 series of phones in terms of performance, camera and also design. According to a report that was leaked earlier this month hinted that Samsung may unveil the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at the Mobile World Congress 2018, unlike the S8 and S8+ which were possibly due to some battery issues.
