Samsung is expected to launch a mini variant of the Galaxy S9 to make a strong foothold in the mid-range segment.
South Korean giant Samsung seems to be prepping to showcase its flagships in 2018, and looks like we already have an idea how the upcoming device will shape up. Latest leak spotted by Forbes hints a mini variant of the Galaxy S9, while the other two will be similar to its predecessors.
If the reports are to be believed, all three models will boast a dual-edge curved Infinity display. Unlike, previous mini variants, Samsung will give the same design to all of the models to make a strong foothold in the mid-range division.
The leaks also suggest that the flagship will have dual camera setup with BABR coating 'broad-band anti-reflection.' The fingerprint sensor is also expected to be relocated on the rear panel.
The device model SM-G960F was spotted in a Geekbench listing scored 2680 points in the single core test which far exceeds that of the Google Pixel 2 which gained1685 points. The device still doesn’t beat the iPhone X which scored a whopping 4218 points.
The listing also reveals that the smartphone will have the Exynos 9 series 9810 which was recently announced. It will be backed by 4GB of RAM and will have support for Gigabit speeds on LTE.
Samsung is also said to launch the device with Snapdragon 845 processors. Qualcomm is reported to sell the entire first batch of the Snapdragon 845 to Samsung for the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The flagship will come with Android Oreo out-of-the-box.
The smartphone is expected to see the light of day at MWC 2018 held in Barcelona, Spain. The company is reportedly planning a launch event for February 25.
