Samsung Begins Galaxy S9 Development, Boosts Production Of Galaxy S8+ To Meet High Demand

Your unreleased Samsung Galaxy S8 is already so last season. Rumor has it that Samsung is already working on its next flagship phone, tentatively called the S9. The corporation has also supposedly increased production of the much anticipated Galaxy S8+.

If Samsung is indeed working on the Galaxy S9, then the company is six months ahead of the previous year’s schedule. An anonymous source stated, “Since late last month, a display team for the S9 has started the development work with aims to supply samples from mid-April. About a month after the display, other key parts such as modules are expected to be developed in phases.”

The source claims that Samsung is able to start on the S9 early, because the company has greatly improved its quality control. The disastrous Galaxy Note 7 incident was the impetus for these advancements. Samsung originally had to delay the Galaxy S8’s announcement and release due to the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.

It is of course too early to determine many of the specifications, but it seems highly likely that the S9 will be available as 5.8 and 6.2-inch screen models. These specs are the same as the S8, which will be released on April 21st. There's also a high probability that Samsung will have plenty of time to add Synaptics' through-the-glass Natural ID FS9100 optical fingerprint authentication system that missed the cut with the Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+.

Samsung is preparing for the release of their S8 and S8+ at the end of this month by ramping up production of the S8+. The Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch display, while the Galaxy S8+ pushes the screen size to 6.2 inches. Both displays are Quad HD+ Super AMOLED with a resolution of 2960x1440. Samsung also includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor running at 2.35GHz, a 12MP dual-pixel design camera with optical image stabilization, and "Dual Audio" that allows you to connect two Bluetooth devices to your phone at once and play audio to those devices simultaneously.
