We have been hearing a lot lately about Samsung working on a new smartphone. Yesterday we had reported about the company working on a new device which is expected to the Galaxy S8 Mini or Lite. However, according to the new reports which we have right now, it looks like the Galaxy S9 is already in works and is up and running.
Earlier, a new device made by Samsung has been spotted on the Geekbench official website. Well, taking a look at the specs of this smartphone, it certainly does look like a new smartphone. First of all, the model number which we are looking at is SM-G9600. This looks like the model number of a 2018 S series smartphone which, if real, means that we could be looking at the Galaxy S9. Yes, it is way too early to even discuss the Galaxy S9 since we are yet to even get the Note 8 phablet this year.
Now taking a look at the specs of this particular listing, we some interesting details here. This alleged new device appears to be running a new SoC. There are a few reports out there which claim that this is the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. Qualcomm has not officially announced this SoC yet, which makes us wonder about the odds of this. The listing says that it is coupled with 4GB of RAM, which is again the same as what we got with the Galaxy S8.
However, if this is expected to be the next Galaxy S series smartphone, then definitely 4GB RAM seems to be far behind since there are smartphones out there with 6GB to 8GB RAM in the market. This new smartphone is also listed to be running on Android 7.1.2, which is pretty much the latest version of Android that is out officially. Do make a note that the smartphone in question could be any new device from the company and not necessarily the Galaxy S9. Since there is not a lot of info regarding this just yet, we suggest you stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more details on the same, as we will update once we have something new on this.
Having said that, we would like to know your thoughts on this. What do you think about this new device? Let is know your thoughts on this by leaving a comment down below.
