The Samsung Galaxy S9 will be the new flagship that Samsung will launch next year, in 2018. The smartphone would have a new processor, the Exynos 9810. There would be no version with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
Samsung Galaxy S9 with Exynos 9810 processor
The Samsung Galaxy S9 will feature a new Samsung processor. Each new version of the flagship has a new version of the highest-level processor from Samsung, and so will the Samsung Galaxy S9. However, the novelty would be that the Samsung Galaxy S9 could arrive in a single version, not launching any version with the processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
The new Samsung Galaxy S9 would have the Exynos 9810 processor. This processor will be an improvement over the Exynos 8890 and the Exynos 8895 Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S8. It will also be made using a 10 nanometer process, and would have an improved design of the eight cores of the two processors, although the three would be similar.
However, the novelty would be that this processor would have compatibility with CDMA networks used by some operators in the United States. Previous Samsung processors were not compatible with these networks, and that is why the flagship was launched with Qualcomm’s high-end processor, which is compatible with these CDMA networks.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 would arrive in a single version, with the processor Exynos 9810 designed by Samsung, which will also be a processor of the highest level.
LG G7 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor
This year the LG G6 was released without the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, because this was an exclusive of the Samsung Galaxy S8, and could not launch any mobile before with the processor. Next year the LG G7 would be launched in January, and it is said that the smartphone itself will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 will not be launched in January, so it could have finalized the exclusive Samsung with the new processor Of Qualcomm. Probably, the Samsung Galaxy S9 would no longer have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in any of its versions. In addition, Samsung would no longer manufacture Qualcomm’s high-end processors, but TSMC would be the company that would manufacture the new Qualcomm processors.
The fact is that the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will have a single version with the Samsung processor Exynos 9810 is not something really relevant for European users, because Europe always comes the version with the processor Exynos, which is compatible with European networks.
