Reportedly three to four months earlier than usual, Samsung has begun development of the Galaxy S9, currently codenamed ‘Star.’ According to Korean publication The Bell, the smartphone manufacturer has started working on its 2018 flagship devices, the S9 and S9+, codenamed Star 2.
Currently, there is no other information available about the S9 or S9+ other than the phones are rumoured to feature the S8’s ‘Infinity Display.’ What we can assume is the Galaxy S9 will be top of the line like Samsung’s S8 and S8+, which were originally codenamed ‘Project Dream.’
While the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will not release for awhile, considering the devices are usually revealed within the first quarter of the year, the rumoured Galaxy Note 8 is fast approaching. However, not much is known about the Note 8 either other than the fact that it’s codenamed ‘Great’ and that it features a 6.3-inch display and dual rear cameras.
Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9+ aren’t expected to be revealed until February or March of next year, while the Note 8 should be shown off later this year.
