The Samsung Galaxy S9 May Be Powered By A 10nm Snapdragon 845

Its called a 'refresh', not a 'rebrand'

It almost seems like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus released yesterday. The device has in-fact been with us since April 2017. As we put an end to 2017, fans are eager to find out what the Samsung Galaxy S9 has in store. The Android giant has had its fair share of glory over the years, and with the Samsung Galaxy S8 launch, it seems like Samsung isn’t willing to slow down anytime soon.

With tiny crumbles or rumors of the Samsung Galaxy S9 ‘echoing’ all over the internet since last week, it seems like the hunt for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus has begun. According to a recent report by GizmoChina, their article suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S9 may pack Snapdragon’s 845 10nm SoC. Being a 10nm SoC, this would be the second time Qualcomm would be utilizing the 10nm process node.

Taking what Samsung has done in 2017, it seems like the bezel-less trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Alongside that, the price hike that Samsung has implemented with the Note 8 has me worried about how far would Samsung price these phones at. Taking a simple example of how much the Samsung Galaxy S8 cost Samsung to build, this one might be another mighty mouse in the park.

Considering Samsung’s efficiency and gaining exclusivity on SoCs from Qualcomm with the Samsung Galaxy S8, the Samsung Galaxy S9 may also be the first to pack in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. There’s less than five months before fans would actually expect a tease from Samsung. Despite the huge time gap before Samsung opens their mouth up to the public, the hype is “hypening” indeed. Can’t wait to see how the Samsung Galaxy S9 plays out.

As a final ending note, 6GB of RAM please Samsung.
