Following the huge success of its Galaxy S8 this year, Samsung is now reportedly gearing up to show off the next generation of its Galaxy S handsets a bit earlier than usual. As reported by the VentureBeat, we might see the Galaxy S9 in January 2018.

Codenamed Star 1 and Star 2 — the S9 and S9+ will feature the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved-edge Super AMOLED Infinity displays, respectively, identical to the S8 and S8+.

However, the company will upgraded the internals. As the reports suggest, the devices will feature Snapdragon 845 processor and an Exynos chip — as well as a dual camera setup and a bump up to 6GB RAM for the larger S9+.

The phones are also believed to be retaining the 3.5mm headphone jack.

It’ll be interesting to see if Samsung can compete with rivals who launched flagships later this year. Galaxy S9 and S9+ are scheduled to make their first public appearance at January’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
