Leaks have been tipping Samsung's hand when it comes to what the company will be showing off at CES 2018 set to kick off early early January. Previously we heard that the folding screen Galaxy X smartphone would be on display at the show. However, a new rumor is making the rounds that suggests Samsung's next Galaxy flagships, the Galaxy S9 and S9+, will also be seen for the first time at CES 2018. A reveal at CES is uncommon for new high-end smartphones, but it seems Samsung may want to unveil its wares at a show that isn’t festooned with other smartphones to steal its thunder. CES is...

The Samsung Galaxy S9 rumors are coming in at a furious pace, and we've recently seen alleged benchmarks for the upcoming smartphone and reports that it a Galaxy S9 Mini will join the family. Now, we're getting a good glimpse at what that Galaxy S9 could look thanks to renders for a third-party case that is destined for the smartphone. The renders, which were obtained by BGR, show a rugged GHOSTEK case that wraps around the Galaxy S9. While it's hard to get a look at the overall shape of the smartphone, we can clearly see from the front that it retains the curved display sides from its Galaxy S8... Read more...
The rumors have started in earnest about the next flagship smartphone from Samsung, which is expected to be called the Galaxy S9. Like Galaxy devices that came before it, the S9 is expected to come in a standard and plus sizes. A results page from Geekbench has surfaced that claims to show the results for the Galaxy S9 Plus version of the smartphone. The results page (seen below) calls out a score of 1191 for single-core and 3835 for multi-core. The model number is Samsung SM-G965F and the listing calls out a motherboard dubbed universal9810. That is presumed to be the new Exynos 9810 SoC... Read more...
When it comes to today's smartphones, it seems as though bigger is better in the eyes of consumers. The original iPhone shipped with a 3.5-inch display, but the current iPhone X ships with a 5.8-inch display. Likewise, Samsung is currently selling the Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 which have 6.2- and 6.3-inch displays respectively. According to a new report out of South Korea, Samsung may be looking to go in the opposite direction with a Galaxy S9 Mini. This would be a premium device in the same mold as the expected Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, but with a 4-inch-class display. The Galaxy S9 Mini would... Read more...
Alleged CAD drawings of the Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone have leaked online and the smartphone looks very much like the existing Galaxy S8. We see the same curved edges on the screen out front but with thinner bezels. The back does show a revised layout for the camera and fingerprint scanner. On the current Galaxy S8 models, the camera is a single-lens unit and the fingerprint scanner is directly to the right of the camera -- a position that many don't care for at all. The S9 drawings, which are originally sourced from Weibo, show a dual camera layout on the back with those cameras stacked in the... Read more...
The smartphone world seemed poised to make a move away from fingerprint scanners that have their own space on the front of the smartphone (or on the back) to scanners that could be hidden away under the glass of the screen. Apple was one of the first to look at this back in October of 2016 when a patent showing plans for an under glass fingerprint scanner first surfaced. The catch was that Apple ultimately decided to leapfrog fingerprint recognition in favor of facial recognition. Word is that Samsung has ditched its plans to put the fingerprint scanner under the screen glass in the upcoming Galaxy... Read more...
  The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ have only been out the for just a few months, but talk is already heating up with regards to its successor. In this case, we’re talking about the Galaxy S9. A new report suggests that the Galaxy S9 will debut early next year with the same display sizes currently found on the Galaxy S8. That revelation isn’t too surprising given that the S8 was a rather thorough remake of the Galaxy design aesthetic with its bezel-free Infinity Display. Available in 5.8- and 6.2-inch sizes, the Infinity Display is incredibly dense, with a resolution of 2960x1440, and is generally... Read more...
The dust has barely settled following the launch of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835-based Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, but there’s already talk of the chip’s successor. For those that need a refresher, the Snapdragon 835 was designed by Qualcomm and is built by Samsung on a 10-nanometer manufacturing process. The upcoming Snapdragon 845, however, is reportedly already in development according to a report from The Investor. Once again, Samsung and Qualcomm are doing the heavy lifting when it comes to designing the next generation smartphone processor, although the report indicates that either Samsung... Read more...
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... Read more...
