The "Galaxy S9" name has been confirmed by Samsung itself.
The Samsung Galaxy Sx naming scheme has been around for 8 solid years now, starting with the Galaxy S in 2010 through Galaxy S7 and continuing with the Galaxy S8 in 2017.
Among them, names like "astarqlte" (Galaxy S9 Active w/ Snapdragon), "star" (Galaxy S9), "star2" (Galaxy S9+), and "crown".
Samsung was said to be working on multiple designs for its Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ prototypes. However, there is a bigger chance that Samsung could release the smartphone with the newly trending 18:9 taller display. The company is believed to unveil a foldable display smartphone called the Galaxy X in the next year.
Of course, while demand for the iPhone X far outstripped supply at its launch, signs have recently emerged suggesting that sales were ultimately much weaker than anticipated, with many speculating that it's the device's high price that kept consumers away.
So there might not be a Samsung Galaxy S10, but right now we wouldn't count on that.
Rumors point to significant hardware upgrades and some changes to the Samsung Experience UI that'll power the flagship phones.
Waiting for the Galaxy S9 launch benefits prospective Galaxy Note 9 buyers in a few different ways. This is possibly a decision taken to make it more ergonomic to operate - one where you don't mistakenly touch the camera lens instead of the sensor.
Weibo tipster Ice Universe, who has an astonishing track record when it comes to retrieving sensitive information from within Samsung's headquarters, has revealed that the Galaxy S10 will be headlined by an all-new Infinity Display that touts an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 93% - up from the 83.6% found on the Galaxy S8.
