With the iPhone X having a huge impact on the smartphone market, and being heralded as ‘the phone of the future’, Samsung has a lot to live up too. They have been dueling with Apple for years, and the fierce rivalry has forced a new standard of excellence, directly benefiting consumers.

Samsung have been planning the Galaxy S9 production for some time, and recent reports suggest it could debut as early as January, and go on sale in February. The smartphone market is positioned healthily for 2018, and additional updates to existing handsets will transcend the market further.

To meet the earlier deadline, Samsung will begin mass Galaxy S9 production in December, utilizing the first batch of Snapdragon 845 chips for US models. News reports confirm Samsung will use the entire first production run of the new chips for the Galaxy S9 and S9+, providing a competitive edge since other leading companies will gain access later.

There is speculation the Galaxy S9 will use the same screen size as the S8, but that doesn’t mean to say the screens themselves won’t be updated. The Galaxy S9 will feature the Infinity Display design, which has curved sides and next to no bezels. The Galaxy S9 is rumored to keep the same 3.5mm headphone jack it has used previously, and feature a dual camera like the Galaxy Note8.

Galaxy S9 production has been brought forward due to the success of the iPhone X, where Samsung are preventing Apple from gaining a dominant market share before it’s too late. Apple have successfully influenced Samsung’s development schedule, and anticipation for the Galaxy S9 remains at an all time high as Samsung redefine their strategy to defend its new flagship.

Samsung is famous for working on multiple designs of the same model, with slightly different specifications, so it will be interesting to see how things unfold in the coming months. Working in this fashion is advantageous, since Samsung can measure customer feedback and subsequently make changes. Though we previously mentioned Samsung would be retaining the 3.5mm stereo jack, other reports suggest they may remove it entirely. This would take heed from Google, who initially praised retention of the audio port with the Pixel, before disregarding it with the Pixel 2.

With Samsung Galaxy S9 Production currently taking place, more news will be revealed over the next few months, and we’ll be one of the first websites to report. Thank you for reading this article, and I hope you’re happy we’ve brought Samsung Galaxy S9 Production to your attention.
