The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was unveiled just a few days back and now the device is all set to go on sale starting September 15 in the global markets. While the sale of Note 8 is imminent, it looks like the rumors and speculations regarding the Galaxy S9 have already started coming up.   A fresh report from South Korea claims that the Samsung would debut the 2018 Galaxy S9 flagship in January next year.

According to a report carried by Android Authority, the Samsung will take the wraps off its next flagship devices a lot earlier than expected, in January to be more exact. The smartphones, which will be launched in January, will then likely go on sale sometime in February, two months sooner than the current Galaxy S lineup.

According to Gizmochina, if these speculations are something to go by then Samsung will start shipping the OLED display panels for the smartphone by November. Since the panels will be shipped before the other accessories meant for the Galaxy S9, it is possible to happen two months before the projected launch of the device. 

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is said to be codenamed as Project Star. Also, the upcoming flagship device is said to feature the QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with the same screen size and 18.5:9 aspect ratio as seen on the Galaxy S8. 

The recent reports hinted that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will come with 4GB RAM that is the same, which has been seen on the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. The reports also state that the Galaxy S9 will also arrive with a dual camera setup at its rear. Apart from these, the smartphone is said to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and a modular design.

In the related news, the South Korean media has also revealed that the LG G7 would be also launching it January 2018. Unlike the LG G6, the LG G7 is rumored to arrive flagship specs.
