The tipsters go on to state that Samsung is referring to the S9 phones as the Star 1 and Star 2, each with the model numbers SM-G960 and SM-G965.

If you just can't wait to see Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 smartphone series (which will succeed the well-received S8 family released in the first half of this year), we have good news. We have already seen benchmarks of the S9 on Geekbench, but now we have a little more proof.

The renders included below, courtesy of BGR, were released by smartphone case manufacturer Ghostek and give us a sense of what we can expect from the new phone. Unfortunately still back-mounted and not underneath the display, it is now orientated vertically with the fingerprint reader at the bottom, meaning there should be no need to smudge the camera lens anymore. VentureBeat also notes the addition of AKG stereo speakers, with Samsung working on a new DeX docking station where the S9 is used as a touchpad or virtual keyboard. The only major flaw with the Galaxy S8 design is the fingerprint sensor placement, but going by these renders, Samsung is addressing this issue. The expectation is that they will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, based on a 10-nanometer fabrication technique, and that some models will have a similarly-designed Exynos processor instead. Its smaller sibling will make do with 4GB of RAM and a single camera at the back. Both devices will keep the 3.5mm headphone jack around for a year longer, too, if the report pans out. While the S8 and S8+ differ only when it comes to size, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ may also bring a few different features.
