While there is no shortage of rumors surrounding Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+, both of the devices were approved by FCC after they were submitted for approval few days earlier. The devices were filed under model numbers SM-G960F (S9) and SM-G965F (S9+). However, apart from the supported network bands and frequencies the listings didn’t reveal any other information related to the upcoming devices.
This is certainly interesting news considering Samsung previously launched their smartphones shortly after approval by FCC. For instance, earlier last year, the company filed approval for its Galaxy S8 models in March with models were released in April. For a long time, rumors have surfaced that Samsung is planning on launching Galaxy S8 sooner than expected due to Apple’s success with iPhone X. However, the company previously said that there is no plan to launch the smartphone earlier than its typical release schedule.
As for specifications, previously reports claimed that the handset will come with Exynos 9810 processor for international markets with US variants using Snapdragon 845 processor accompanied by 4GB or 6GB RAM. In addition to this, the smartphone is rumored to feature 12MP dual-camera setup, an 8MP front-facing camera.
