Samsung Galaxy S9: Release,Specification Rumoures & News

The Samsung Galaxy S8  comes to stores earlier this year, but we are already noticed that the rumours of the Samsung Galaxy S9.
The rumours are now coming fast for what the new phone will look like, especially as we've now seen the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone 8, so we've rounded up the best of them here - as well as answering some key questions.

Samsung Galaxy S9 news and rumours

Not much is known about the Samsung Galaxy S9, but some sources call the company has already started work on producing its next flagship SmartPhone.
The Bell reports unnamed industry sources saying that Samsung has been work on the display panels for the Galaxy S9 from last few months. 
That does not come as a  surprise, many companies start work on their phones before one model has even been announced, but it's good to get the rumours flowing already about the next Samsung phone.
Samsung and Qualcomm started working on an S9 mobile chip according to The Investor. The chip is apparently likely to be called the Snapdragon 845 - up from the Snapdragon 835 found in some versions of the Galaxy S8.
The Snapdragon 845's use has again been rumoured, this time by a reasonably reliable source, so it's looking likely.
So far we don't know anything about the power or performance of the Snapdragon 845 chipset, but we'd wager it won't be the only one Samsung uses.

speaking of a new Exynos chip, Samsung has revealed that it has developed LTE modems for the next generation of its chips. Because these modems support download speeds of 1.2Gbps faster than any other phone, meaning you could download an HD movie within just 10 seconds.
However, it seems unlikely that we'll get 6GB of RAM inside, which is what many smartphone brands (especially Asian ones) are doing - with Samsung set to stick with the much-more-sensible 4GB spec instead
It seems one of the big chipset developments may allow the company to include a much bigger battery too. A new report suggests Samsung will now use Substrate-like PCB tech that will allow the Exynos chipset manufacturer to include a bigger battery without increasing the size of the processor.
It may mean the extra battery won't be on the Qualcomm Snapdragon toting Galaxy S9, but it could mean big improvements for those who get the Exynos version. 

One of the big issues with the Samsung Galaxy S8 was the fact the fingerprint sensor was shoved to the back of the phone after rumours abounded that the reader was supposed to go under the display's glass but it just didn't work.
However, the new Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensor can sit below quite thick displays, and OLED technology was specifically mentioned.
All that points to the Samsung Galaxy S9 having fingerprint-sensing technology below the glass.
Then again, one tipster claims an in-screen scanner isn't in the cards, as does another recent report, so don't count on that feature just yet.

Samsung Galaxy S9 price and release date

We so far know nothing about when the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be announced, so we'll just have to go off what Samsung has done in the past.
Samsung announced the Galaxy S8 in late March, so we'd expect it will follow up with the Galaxy S9 roughly a year later, at the end of March 2018. 
But it was late in announcing the Galaxy S8 in 2017 - the company waited about a month longer than normal, so it's possible that the S9 will land around the end of February, in which case it might be launchd at Mobile World Congress 2018, as that's likely to take place at that sort of time.
Recent rumors state that - due to the fact the OLED screens that are likely to be used in the phones are being created earlier than usual - the Galaxy S9 will launch in January, but that would be far too early for many reasons, not least because people wouldn't be eligible to upgrade to it right away.
What we can safely predict is the Samsung Galaxy S9 is sure to be expensive, as the Galaxy S8 launched at $720, £689, AU$1,199.
