Samsung Galaxy S9 could be launched in January 2018
Most of the leak-sources are notorious for being apt. Therefore, one can rest assured that the final product won't be far off.
So here's what we know so far.
Samsung Galaxy S9 rumors, leaks as of now
Oreo will be there
However, Galaxy S9 will make its debut with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under its hood and Android 8.0 Oreo will also be there.
It is Samsung's flagship phone and Qualcomm 845 is next in line after Snapdragon's latest 835 series. It's not hard to do the math.
It might have a January release date
Korean media The Investor says that the Galaxy S9 could have a launch date in, as early as, January. However, everything depends on the assembly schedule.
OLED panel shipments will begin from this November, which means the device should ideally be ready for launch by the end of January 2018. If everything falls into place, S9 will be available in stores by February.

To have or not to have
Now, there is some confusion. According to XDA Developers, the phone will not carry the fingerprint scanner under its display. However, it is very much possible that the publication's source has only seen the early prototypes. This can, therefore, go either way.
Another confusion is regarding Galaxy S9's camera. While most reports suggest it'll feature dual camera set-up, but no one is sure as of now.
Let's keep our eyes open
The report also says that Galaxy S9 will stick with the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage formula.
It's highly unlikely for the company to do something radically different and cram an 8GB RAM under its hood.
However, one should always remember that these rumors may sound concrete but, since they're unofficial in nature, one cannot be certain about them.
It's still early, changes may occur.
