Samsung has been in the news more frequently than most of the other smartphone developing brands which are currently present in the market. And this time it is because of the next flagship device in the Galaxy S series. The new smartphone with model number SM-G9650 which has been spotted on a benchmark site is expected to be the Samsung Galaxy S9.
There isn’t any official statement that the new device is the Galaxy S9, and hence, it is still in a stage of speculation. The speculations are logical enough for the Render Script score of the device which has been noted to be 7371, which is quite high. It is only possible for a high-end device to come out with such a score after going through the tests in Geekbench.
The Geekbench listing of the device has also stated that the device is going to be equipped with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood coupled with 4 GB RAM. The device will run an Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system right out of the box.
The revealed specs are very much in line with the possibilities which have been discussed for long. Samsung Galaxy S8 came with the Qualcomm SD 835 chipset, and the next generation chipset is expected to be the SD 845. So this could well be the next flagship device which is the Samsung Galaxy S9, although there isn’t any confirmation. Previous reports, however, have stated that the handset will be equipped with both Qualcomm chipsets as well as in-house Exynos chipsets.
Not just the specs, the model number is pretty indicative of the fact that this particular smartphone could be the S9 from Samsung. The previous models in this line-up from Samsung came with similar types of model numbers. S8 and S8+ had the model number SM-G950 and SM-G955 respectively. The S7, as well as the S6, had model numbers in the SM-G9XX series. So that is quite conclusive of prediction that this smartphone is the upcoming flagship from Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy S9 release date is certainly set in 2018. Hence, we have a long time in hand. That enhances the scope of coming across more updates regarding the specs and features of the device. So keep coming back for more updates related to the Samsung Galaxy S9.
