Samsung Galaxy S9 stops by Geekbench with 4GB RAM and Android 8.0 Oreo, early launch looming

Samsung Galaxy S9

Last week, Samsung revealed the name of the processor that will power the Galaxy S9 and S9+ and further confirmed that the chipset will be made official at the CES 2018.

Even though the launch date of Samsung Galaxy S9 remains unknown, a recent report claims that the Korean company could be on course to effectively put the S series release schedule back on track. This means we could be looking at an MWC 2018 launch date, which last happened back in 2016 with the launch of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

Samsung has remained coy on the aspects of the Galaxy S9, which is expected, however, it’s never easy to hold onto everything for such a huge company that has everybody’s attention. Earlier this week, an alleged Samsung Galaxy S9+ was spotted on Geekbench, giving us an early look into some of the core specs of the phone.

From the listing, the Galaxy S9+ will come with an Exynos 9810 paired with 4GB RAM and for the OS, it will be powered by Android 8.0 Oreo. If anything, these are not far from what we expect, except some will disappointed with the RAM module. As if to back this up, the same platform is now giving us a similar look into some of the specs of the standard Samsung Galaxy S9 – and there are no surprises either. As it is, the Galaxy S9 will also rock an Exynos 9810 alongside 4GB RAM and Oreo, just like the S9+.

The listed Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ handsets have model numbers SM-G960F and SM-G965F, suggesting that these are for European, African and Asian markets. The duo’s appearance also suggests that Samsung has already started testing the phones ahead of the expected MWC 2018 launch, which should take place towards the end of February.
