Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus just got a big augmented reality boost

Korean media are now reporting that not only will the Galaxy Note 9 be launched earlier this year, so will the Galaxy S10.

Samsung declined to confirm the timeline for new products. According to a report from The Korea Herald, the new Galaxy Note 9 could be released as soon as August.

Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S7 devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update.

The Galaxy Note 9 likely won't be too different to the Galaxy Note 8. However, the Samsung Galaxy A8 Star (SM-G885F/DS) is rumored to launch in various global markets as well and not only in China as it happened with various A-series Galaxy handsets that Samsung released in the past. Though 1 million in sales in South Korea is impressive, it's worth noting that it took the S9 a tad longer to reach that mark relative to last year's Galaxy S8. The tenth anniversary Galaxy S10, on the other hand, is said to be making an appearance as early CES 2019 in January. Several owners have emailed the CEO of Samsung UK, with at least one having received a £50 Amazon voucher as compensation (I've never heard of something like this happening in the US).

Once the company is done with both the device, Samsung is rumored to launch Galaxy X at MWC next year. The Bell claims that the S10's launch has been pushed forward to make room for its long-rumoured foldable 'Galaxy X' smartphone. Furthermore, production of the revolutionary foldable OLED display will begin in November of this year, enough time for the release in mid 2019.

Samsung Electronics' head of smartphone business Koh Dong-jin introduces Galaxy S9 and S9+ in February. If you're happy with the phone you have now, it may be smart to hold off on a new phone until 2019.

In terms of price, Galaxy Note 9 might cost around $1000.

Display suppliers have reportedly started mass production of the 6.38-inch Super AMOLED display that will be used in the Galaxy Note 9.
