Alleged Galaxy S9, S9+ RAM & Storage Variants Revealed

Tyler Lee January 8, 2018

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are expected to be announced in perhaps the next month or so, and as expected the leaks have already started to come in, with the latest one from a post on Weibo (via SamMobile) giving us some clues as to what kind of RAM and storage variants that either phone could be offered in.

According to the post, it seems that Samsung will not be upping the amount of RAM on the Galaxy S9 and will be keeping it at 4GB, with users being able to choose between 64GB or 128GB of storage. As for the S9+, Samsung is said to offer three variants: one will pack 64GB of storage, another with 128GB, and the third with 256GB.

However all three variants are said to come with 6GB of RAM. The report goes on to add that Samsung could also be working on a fourth variant for select markets in limited quantity, and that is a 6GB RAM model with 512GB of storage, which would be a first but not surprising given that it was just last month that Samsung announced that they have begun mass producing the memory chips.

Take it with a grain of salt for now, but we might not be too far off from an official announcement since the rumors had pegged it for February. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ have also recently been spotted at the FCC, bringing it one step closer to being made a reality.

Samsung Unveils Galaxy S9’s Exynos 9810 Processor

Adnan Farooqui January 4, 2018


Samsung had teased last week that it would unveil a new high-end mobile chip soon and today it has officially announced the Exynos 9810 processor. This high-end chip will first be used for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagship smartphones that are due in a couple of months. The company says that the new chip offers 40 percent better performance compared to its predecessor the Exynos 8890.

The Exynos 9810 has a new octacore processor with four high-performance and four efficiency-optimized cores. The chip also features a LTE Cat.18 modem with theoretical download and upload speeds of 1.2Gbps and 200 megabits per second respectively.

Samsung mentions that the new chip has neural network-based deep learning capabilities and also supports depth sensing. This means that the Galaxy S9 can have features like face unlock that will operate in a manner similar to how it does on the iPhone X.

The dedicated image processing capabilities will improve the camera performance while the updated multi-format codec will enable video recording and playback in UHD at 120 frames-per-second.

Samsung confirmed today that it has already started mass producing the Exynos 9810. This fits in nicely with reports that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be launched a month earlier than their predecessors.

It merits mentioning here that some variants of the upcoming flagship smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor. This includes variants destined for the United States.

Samsung’s New DeX Pad Could Have A Different Form Factor

Adnan Farooqui January 2, 2018


Samsung introduced the DeX Station accessory with the Galaxy S8 last year. It enables the handset to provide a PC-like interface when it’s connected to an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse using this accessory. Samsung made the Galaxy Note 8 compatible with DeX as well so it’s clear that the company wants this platform to stick around. It appears that Samsung is developing a new form factor for its DeX accessory. The one that it launches with the Galaxy S9 this year may be called DeX Pad instead.

Samsung has filed a new trademark with the European Union Intellectual Property Office for “DEX PAD.” This can be taken as an indication that the company is going to launch a new DeX accessory with the Galaxy S9 this year.

Reports suggest that instead of a dock, the new accessory is going to function more like a wireless charging pad. Since the handset will lie flat on the pad, the new form factor can also enable the handset to double as a touchpad for the desktop environment.

That being said, the requirement for an external monitor and keyboard will remain for those who want to take full advantage of the desktop experience powered by DeX. Samsung introduced new software for DeX when the Note 8 was announced a few months back so it’s likely that we may also see some DeX-related software improvements when the Galaxy S9 is launched.

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona next month.

Samsung Teases Flagship Exynos Announcement For January 2018

Tyler Lee December 28, 2017

For the most part what Samsung has been doing over the years is offer its flagship handset in two variants: one made using Qualcomm’s chipset, and the other made using Samsung’s own chipset (both destined for different markets). It is largely expected that this practice will continue in 2018 with the upcoming Galaxy S9.

This is why when Samsung announced the Exynos 9810 last month, many speculated that it could be the chipset that will find its way into one of the versions of the Galaxy S9. That being said, details about the chipset were scarce, but not to worry as Samsung will be unveiling it in full, thanks to a recent teaser announcement that the company has posted onto Twitter.

According to the teaser, Samsung will be unveiling the “next” Exynos chipset on the 4th of January, 2018, a little less than a week ahead of CES 2018. Presumably the chipset in question will be the Exynos 9810, unless Samsung has a newer chipset that they plan on announcing (we doubt that).

In any case we should find out soon enough so do check back with us then for the details. In the meantime both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have recently been spotted at the FCC, hinting that we could be getting closer to an official announcement, which last we heard could take place in February possibly at MWC 2018.

Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9+ Closer To Launch With FCC Certification

Adnan Farooqui December 28, 2017


There have been countless reports suggesting that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be launched a month earlier than their predecessors. Samsung is expected to announce the handsets at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in February. It will then release the device in early March. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are now one step closer to release as both devices have been certified by the FCC.

The FCC certified Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphones on December 27th. Predictably, the listings don’t reveal anything about the specifications of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The filing doesn’t even include a standard design outline that’s normally seen in FCC filings.

One theory is that when these documents were submitted to the FCC, Samsung hadn’t decided on the final design for the Galaxy S9. It’s plausible given that Samsung filed some of the documents with the FCC in mid-November.

The international unlocked models of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ with model numbers SM-G960F and SM-G965F respectively have now been certified by the FCC. It has cleared a major hurdle on its way to shelves across the globe.

A certification at this point in time suggests that there’s merit to reports of an early launch. Multiple reports have claimed that Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy S9 at MWC 2018 in February. It may need a couple of weeks after that to release the handset. It was also reported recently that Samsung has started mass production of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
