Moreover, the Galaxy Note 9 to be launched in August 2018 will also be equipped with the new processor for units shipped to Asian countries.
Neither of these rumoured features have been confirmed.
Late last week, Samsung unveiled the next generation chipset - the Exynos 9810 chipset that is built on the second generation 10 nm production mode of the company. The Galaxy S9 is expected to ditch the fingerprint sensor and introduce some kind of facial recognition technology as well as Samsung's existing iris scanner.
There are some similarities as well, especially when it comes to the front camera and the design, despite the fact that the size is different. Now, for the first time, a set of images supposedly show the Galaxy S9's updated design.
But take note that the information, although came from the press release provided by Samsung, is just based on intelligent guesses and we might or might not see one of these components implemented on Samsung's next flagship for the year 2018.
Previous whispers suggest Samsung will include the dual camera set-up it debuted with the Galaxy Note 8 on its new Galaxy S handsets.
The story is the same for those using Samsung Galaxy J3 V 2016, which carries model number SM-J320V. The Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition is exactly the same you would buy from a retailer or wireless carrier but there is a small difference.
Both rear cameras sport optical image stabilisation (OIS) to help produce clear photos - even in low-light.
This new flagship will reportedly boast a foldable OLED display.
Some rumours suggest the South Korean company will only release the smartphone in its native market, before rolling-out worldwide later in 2018.
