Since the competition for market shares is intensifying between Samsung, Apple and Chinese smartphones OEMs, it is forecasted that the new smartphones may debut earlier next year. Fresh information suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and LG G7 may debut in January 2018.
Samsung is known for unleashing its Galaxy S series flagship phones in March every year in the U.S. and the U.K. Recently, well-known tipster Evan Blass had claimed that Samsung may showcase the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2018.
It is speculated that the Galaxy S9 duo would be arriving early to disturb the sales of the immensely popular Apple iPhone X that has gone on sale in various markets recently. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are expected to arrive with 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch S-AMOLED Infinity Display, Snapdragon 845 chipset, vertically arranged dual rear cameras and a repositioned fingerprint scanner.
LG too is rumored to be prepping up to launch the LG G7 in January 2018. The LG G5 and LG G6 smartphones were unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event that was in late February each year. It seems that the LG is working on introducing the LG G7 a month earlier than its preceding phones. The LG G7 is speculated to feature an OLED display and Snapdragon 845 chipset.
Meanwhile, Apple seems to be building the alleged iPhone SE 2 in India. The compact-sized iPhone will be reportedly aimed towards emerging markets like India, Indonesia and Southeast Asia. It is likely to debut in March next year. Its rumored specs include Apple A10 chipset, iOS 11, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB storage, Touch ID fingerprint sensor and 12-megapixel rear camera.
