South Korean electronics manufacturer Samsung, only recently released two of their new flagship smartphones. The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are the company's current premium devices to the market. Samsung has decided to opt for a swifter development process where the company in collaboration with Qualcomm is also developing the Snapdragon 845 chipset. According to reports from the internet, the S9 and S9 Plus are already in development.
While the reports do not mention specifically about the Galaxy S9, the naming scheme will likely be retained by Samsung. With a device codename called 'Star', the upcoming smartphone is expected to be rolled out into the industry earlier than expected, by at least four months ahead of schedule. GSMArena reports that the next generation smartphones too will come out in two variants, with the larger-sized device carrying a bigger screen.
The 'Star 2' or the Plus variant of the Samsung Galaxy S9 is also part of the next generation of Samsung's flagship smartphones. At the moment, there's no adequate information about the hardware specifications or the display type on the new smartphones. As noted from SamMobile, the next generation of Galaxy Devices will also feature the same infinity edge displays currently implemented on the latest smartphones.
The Galaxy S9 will be a minor upgrade, at least in its internal hardware alongside major advancements in the technology on the device. The company this year opted for a change in venue, in order to unveil their new set of smartphones. Samsung is also rumored to be bringing out the Galaxy Note 8, a replacement to the disastrous Galaxy Note 7 released last year. If the reports about the Snapdragon 845 are believed to be true, the 7nm processors would be a part of the new and upcoming flagship smartphone from the manufacturer.
