Samsung to tease Galaxy S9 as soon as January at CES
It won’t be as dramatic of an upgrade as the Galaxy S8 was
There’s no shortage of flagship smartphones to choose from this holiday season and there’s still time to score some pretty significant savings. If you’re planning on waiting until after the New Year to pick something up, however, you may be interested to learn that Samsung’s next flagship is expected to make an appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show in early January.
Evan Blass from VentureBeat says Samsung is planning to show off the Galaxy S9 and S9+ a bit earlier than usual (we typically don’t see new Galaxy S devices until March).
Sources tell Blass that the phones, codenamed Star 1 and Star 2 and going by the model numbers SM-G960 and SM-G965, will be nearly identical in appearance to their predecessors and use the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved-edge Super AMOLED displays. A specific processor wasn’t mentioned but they’ll apparently use chips built on a 10nm process (likely a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845).
