You could get to see the Galaxy S9, S9+ by January 2018


"Now you can purchase a Samsung Galaxy S8 device and personalize your phone with the Microsoft Launcher It's an app that includes favourites like Word, Excel, Onenote, Cortana, Outlook, and more".

SamMobile has published a set of leaked renders of the Galaxy A5 (2018), and the design does look similar to the Galaxy S8. Considering the spec list already associated with the smartphone series, this points to a pretty impressive device, meaning that many Android fans will be eagerly awaiting the Galaxy S9 release date. For example, the biometric authentication is now less likely to fail when using Samsung Pass, a feature that enables secure access to the phone and other services using the handset's iris scanner, fingerprint sensor, or facial recognition.

Interestingly, a Chinese leakster had claimed in the previous week that Samsung may rebrand the upcoming Galaxy A5 and A7 smartphones as Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8 Plus (2018). Rumors are rife that this smartphone will benefit from 6GB of RAM, in line with the existing Galaxy Note 8. It's just that many customers may expect Samsung phones to do everything an iPhone can, and perhaps even more.

Samsung has made a remarkable comeback since the battery issues of 2016. The Western version of handset might possibly be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 chipset, but that hasn't been confirmed 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.

Although there's no confirmation yet, the Galaxy A5 is expected to be announced sometime in January 2018 alongside the Galaxy A7.

The Galaxy S9 will sport a 5.8-inch curved-edge Super AMOLED Infinity display and the S9+ will boast a larger 6.2-inch display. With the Galaxy S8, Samsung has removed the physical home button, it is one of the significant change introduced in the Samsung Galaxy S lineup.
