After the Galaxy S8 / S8 + at the start of the year and the Galaxy Note 8 in the second half, Samsung is now preparing its next benchmark model, the Galaxy S9 and S9 +, with a launch expected early next year.
And according to Ice Universe, the author of several leaks concerning the Korean group's projects on social networks, the mass production of new smartphones would begin in December.
And if the Galaxy S8 was not marketed until April, due to the late production of the SoC SnapDragon 835 engraved for the first time in 10 nm, the Galaxy S9 should not necessarily have the same fate with an SoC SnapDragon 845 also engraved in 10 nm, according to an optimized process but which does not impose major changes in the production method.
A production launched in December can lead to an early launch, but it is also possible that Samsung will accumulate stock before a marketing phase around March 2018.
The Galaxy S9 and S9 + should keep the respective diagonals of 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches, with a back that could evolve and accommodate a double photo sensor but still include a fingerprint reader on the back, the reader footprints housed under the screen being rather expected with the Galaxy Note 9 in the second half of 2018.
