Samsung is now busy selling the Galaxy S8. Its latest flagship smartphone is off to a very good start globally and it just might set new sales records for the company. However, Samsung is not one to rest on its laurels. A new report out of South Korea suggests that the company has already started working on the Galaxy S9. Next year’s flagship smartphone is reportedly codenamed “Star.”
It wouldn’t be surprising if Samsung has already started working on the Galaxy S9. Developing a flagship smartphone takes time and when you set high expectations with your products, you need to work extra to ensure that you meet those expectations.
Samsung has raised the bar pretty high with the Galaxy S8 and if history is any indication, the Galaxy S9 is going to be an incremental update, but it will have to have a certain wow factor if Samsung wants to sell millions of units of its expensive flagship smartphone next year as well.
The report also mentions that there’s a larger model of the Galaxy S9 in development as well that’s codenamed “Star 2.” Again, not surprising, we can expect Samsung to continue with the “+” model that it has launched with the Galaxy S8+ this year.
No further details are available right now as it’s too early to speculate about what the Galaxy S9 is going to be. We can be sure to hear more about it just a few months before its due early next year.
