Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are expected to be available for purchase in various global markets from April 21. Later this year, it is going to release a successor phone for Galaxy S8. Even though its 2017 flagships are yet to be available to users, the South Korean has allegedly began working on its 2018 flagships.
Undisclosed industry sources have revealed to The Bell that a dedicated team has been created that has already started working on the screens of the Galaxy S9 that may launch in the first quarter of next year. The sources claim that the team began working since late March which means the company is 6 months ahead of its scheduled as compared to 2016. The probably reason behind it is that the company has implemented a stringent quality control process after the debacle of Galaxy Note 7 that happened in the previous year.
It is quite early to speculate on the specifications and features of the Galaxy S9. The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch display and the Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2-inch screen. Hence, the successor models are likely to retain the same sized screens. The same report also claims that the Galaxy Note 8 would be arriving with a largest ever screen of 6.32 inches that has been seen on a Samsung flagship phone. Its fingerprint scanner is speculated to be placed under the screen.
