However, Samsung has revealed some of the key components likely to feature in its next-generation flagship device, hinting at the capabilities of its upcoming hardware.

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.

Just like the rest of the Galaxy S devices before, the Galaxy S9 is expected to come with either Exynos or Snapdragon SoC, depending on where market you're located.

Alleged CAD drawings of the Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone have leaked online and the smartphone looks very much like the existing Galaxy S8. According to US-based investment information provider, Valuewalk which received the tip from anonymous sources, Samsung has plans to release a Galaxy S9 mini in 2018.

What's also different is the location of the fingerprint sensor, which is positioned beneath the cameras in a more accessible spot.

But we expect to see plenty more rumors over the coming weeks and months, so we should soon have a clearer idea of what to expect from Samsung's next flagships. On the Galaxy Note 8, which had enough time to brew, it nearly felt like an insult, with Samsung stubbornly insisting that everything's fine and dandy just the way things are. And unlike the iPhone, Samsung lets you adjust the level of background blur after the photo has been taken.

What doesn't make a lot of sense is the use of 4GB RAM, not to mention ridiculously low single and multi-core performance scores of around 1200 and 2800 points, compared to the regular S8's tallies of 2000 and 6600 points or so respectively.

Samsung Galaxy X is expected to be in extremely limited supply. However, there are contradictory reports are suggesting a January 2018 release date for these smartphones.
