Coming from leakster Benjamin Geskin, these are said to be the official logos of next year s Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. In a tweet, he also suggested that the Galaxy S9 will ship with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, which would replace the Snapdragon 835 found in the Galaxy S8 duo. However, that would be for the US and China market, in India and other countries, the Galaxy S9 will be powered by Exynos 9 octa-core chipset, built using the 10nm process.

Do note that Qualcomm changed its processor branding earlier this year, so the forthcoming chipset will technically be now referred to as the “Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform”. Basically, the processor will be Qualcomm’s next generation flagship mobile chipset solution, and the Galaxy S9 will probably be the first one to be powered by it.
Additionally, Geskin s leak also suggests that both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will feature 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, with support for expandable memory up to 256GB using a microSD card. ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy S8 Long Term Review: 5 months on, is it still capable?
Further, as per a recent leak, Samsung will be placing this 3D image mapping sensor on the upcoming Galaxy S9, which would work similarly to the Apple iPhone X s Face ID. Samsung has also created two new image sensors lately that it thinks can help get rid of the infamous camera bump, which we now see in almost every other smartphone. Samsung says that with the new sensors, you can expect improved speed in focus, as well as the ability for the camera to keep locked-on and track moving objects. On its blog, Samsung promises that this will all be possible in low light too, vowing that it ll keep the next smartphone bump-free, while also delivering bokeh depth of focus effects with just a single lens. This hint is highly anticipated to be for the Samsung Galaxy S9 duo. ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy S9 may feature iPhone X-like Face ID feature
