Samsung Galaxy S9 Rumors Fly: Next Flagship Already In Development
Samsung Galaxy S8 units landed in people's hands only last week and it is undoubtedly the best phone out there anyone can buy right now. But the mobile device's meteoric early success does not mean the Korean tech giant is resting on their laurels. In fact, reports from the company's home country already point to them that they are already planning on their next flagship, the Galaxy S9. And Qualcomm is in on the secret, too.
BGR notes that a South Korean publication wrote that Samsung and Qualcomm are already hard at work for a new processor for Galaxy S9. The next generation hardware from the chipmaker is likely to be called the Snapdragon 845. Either Samsung or Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) would produce it once it is ready for mass production.
This is not the first report regarding the next flagship phone from Samsung. Early this April, reports flew about that Galaxy S9 was already in development. Aside from that, there are no further details regarding the mobile phone nor the chip that would power it.
However, a rumor originating from Chinese social media platform Weibo points to a third quarter reveal of Snapdragon 84x. According to Digital Trends, the chip could be named 845 or 840. Further, the hearsay also points to the chip being an octa core.
For Galaxy S8, Samsung uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 as well as the 889 chips. Both processors were created using 10-nanometer technology, making them speedier and more energy-efficient compared to older makes. Since the South Korea-based company has employed both chips in their smartphones for several years now, it is still likely they will do the same for Galaxy S9.
But there was no mention of an Exynos chip in the report regarding the development of the flagship. The report also did not say anything about specifications. Nonetheless, people will know more in due time as the rumors also point to a 2018 release of the Galaxy S8 successor.
