The Samsung Galaxy S8 was released in March, but the rumors about its successor have already started to hit the internet. Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone is expected to come in about six months, so the spec sheet is pretty empty. However, we think we know some stuff about the device already.
Some reports from April this year claim that Samsung and Qualcomm are teaming up to develop the Snapdragon 845 chipset together. That chipset will probably power the Galaxy S9. Another rumor says that the handset will be able to reach download rates of 5Gbps since the featured Qualcomm X50 modem will offer 5G support. The company has also improved the Quality Control processes to accelerate the device’s development, according to Korean media.
If you’re hoping that the Galaxy S9 will come with a lot of new upgraded specs and features, today’s reports probably won’t make you too happy. These reports claim that S9 and S9+ will have the same display sizes (5.8” and 6.2” respectively) as the S8 and S8+, and that many upgrades won’t be made.
Smartphones fans around the world, including me, must hope that these rumors are not true. Luckily, we can take this with a grain of salt since nothing is confirmed by official sources.
