It was the Galaxy S8 launched later than Samsung wanted this year, followed by the Galaxy Note 7 recall. Debuts the Galaxy Note 8 with S Pen and some best components integrated inside to compete with the likes of other Android devices.
Usually, Samsung’s phone would be the first Android-powered phone to bring to the market a critical key component, one that rivals like Apple lacked. But here the things have changed, as the iPhone X may definitely had some advantages to break the record. So Samsung may pull off the same trick with the upcoming Galaxy S9, if this news report is anything to believe.
In order to launch Galaxy S8, Samsung and Qualcomm inked a special deal, making the phone the first device in the world pack a Snapdragon 835 processor. Other handsets and makers, such as the LG G6 by LG launched more than a month before the Galaxy S8 unveil, suffered the consequences. The 2017 LG flagship was hardly a top-selling device, and specifications-wise it may have played a significant role in that arena.
Speaking about SD835 SoC, which is one of the various 10nm chips shipping inside smartphone this year. With Apple’s A10X and A11 Bionic, and Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 also included in that list. LG, otherwise, had to rely on older hardware for the G6.
With the speculation of the Snapdragon 845 incoming next year will be a Galaxy S9/S9+ exclusive. Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin said in a tweet through his Twitter account. That, if accurate, Samsung’s competitors looking to unveil new phones early next year.
He also said that the new Samsung phone will launch a month earlier than actual, without specifying what that means. Here are the details: Samsung Galaxy S9 Features Tipped So Early.
Similarly how the Galaxy S8 was an exception for Samsung this year, was utterly forced to unveil in late March. In previous years, Samsung scheduled press conference at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) to announce the Galaxy S6 and S7, which was usually a late February or early March affair.
What about next year 2018? Will the Galaxy S return to MWC? Or will Samsung launch it even earlier than that? Stay tuned for more and more info regarding the forthcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9.
