Software for the Samsung Galaxy S9 is already in development, at least according to one reliable source.
Samsung has only just released its latest smartphone, the well-received Galaxy Note 8. However, it seems that the South Korean tech giant is already looking for the next opportunity to scupper rival Apple, and its headline-grabbing iPhone X.
According to Sammobile, Samsung has already begun development on the firmware for two Samsung Galaxy S9 models. For reference, Sammobile is a specialist Samsung blog that has a highly accurate track record for Samsung mobile leaks.
The report notes that the firmware names are as follows: G960FXXU0AQI5 and G965FXXU0AQI5. From those monikers, we’re able to discern the model numbers for the next flagship Samsung phones, too. The Samsung Galaxy S9 will probably be called SM-G960, while the Galaxy S9+ will likely be dubbed SM-G965.
That’s not a massive surprise, mind; the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ used the model numbers SM-G950 and SMG955 respectively.
It’s also worth noting that last year, Samsung’s firmware development for the Galaxy S8 began two weeks later. That means we could be seeing a slightly earlier launch for the Galaxy S9 next year. That’s already been rumoured to be the case, with previous leaks suggesting we’d see a debut in February, and a retail release very shortly thereafter.
Unfortunately, even though we have a large amount of faith in Sammobile leaks, we have to take this latest titbit with due caution. It’s impossible for us to verify such a report, and we won’t really know the truth until an official announcement is made in early 2018.
