Samsung rolling out what is possibly the last Galaxy S8/S8”

Rumors of a foldable smartphone from Samsung have also been making rounds for ages, and Koh noted that it should launch sometime next year.

For those who came in late, the Galaxy X handset is to be Samsung's first foldable handset. The product is said to be operational with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 proccesor, 5.65-inch QHD + a Super AMOLED display, and either a 4 or 6 GB RAM.

The biggest feature of the phone is the dual front camera or the selfie camera.

Internal storage: The Galaxy A8+ will be available in 64GB internal storage option with support for expandable storage by up to 256GB via a dedicated micro-SD card slot. Galaxy A8+(2018) smartphone runs on Android Nougat OS.

With this confirmation, the new flagships will be successors to the company's 2017 flagships the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

Galaxy A8+'s large screen is supported with ergonomic curved glass on the back and front. We will also have to wait and see if Samsung goes for bigger batteries in the Galaxy S9 series. The front, in the case of the Galaxy A8+, is clean and without any physical buttons. The launch offers on the phone are not yet disclosed but soon it will be detailed.

The device comes with IP68 certification that gives it reasonable protection against water and dust. Another major design change and a crucial one is expected to come in the form of re-positioned rear fingerprint sensor.

Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will keep the Bixby button, which was introduced a year ago alongside the artificial assistant of the same name.

S9's predecessor, the Galaxy S8, was well received by consumers and technological experts when it was released in 2017.

- The rear camera is further assisted with video digital image stabilisation (VDis) technology, and includes a hyper lapse feature for enhanced time-lapse videos.

For connectivity, the device comes with 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, and USB Type-C port.
