Samsung second largest smartphone brand in United Kingdom, slightly behind Apple: Counterpoint

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, iterative upgrades, will make a cameo at CES

The "Infinity Display" introduced on the current-gen Galaxy phones, which extends the display across the entire front, will remain.

Samsung is in need of more than a year to copy Apple's recent success and tactic, and may further fall behind its biggest competition.

While you might not see any awesome deals on the iPhone X, chances are there will be some better than usual offers, and some good deals on the Samsung S8 and the newly released Google Pixel 2.

Now, in a new development, Samsung Galaxy S9 will reportedly ship with the widest aperture in a smartphone, yet.

One of the things that Samsung users know for a fact is that the company soon started working on Samsung Galaxy S9 and related models as soon as they were done with S8.

The new report also revealed that the device might sport a vertically-aligned dual-camera setup. The publication notes it is being speculated that the local authorities are trying to hamper the success of the iPhone X, Apple's latest flagship phone which has sold out all over the world.

There are also some benchmark scores leaked for the Samsung Galaxy S9, which also show other specs, like 4 GB RAM - but we should also see a 6 GB RAM variant too.

Rather than representing the sort of radical departure that the iPhone X was for Apple, the Galaxy S9 will instead deliver extra polish and power. The Galaxy A series is likely to ship with Nougat, which is not very pleasing, but very typical of Samsung. The practice seems to be that if you do plan to remove the 3.5mm jack, the least you could develop is produce wireless headphones of your own.

The report also mentions that the Galaxy S9 will be codenamed as Star 1 and it will bear a model number of SM-G90, while the Galaxy S9+ will bear a codename Star 2 and model number SM-G965. The new phone is most probably scheduled to launch for sale during the month of May in 2018.
