Competition is as strong as ever in the flagship smartphone market. The biggest release of this year has arguably been the iPhone X, which has been a huge departure from the norm for Apple. While we can sit here all day and tell people how Android devices have had the new iPhone X features years ago, people are understandably excited about a new and unique Apple product.
In the face of this competition, Samsung may be announcing the Galaxy S9 line a month early. The company is said to be announcing the device in February and even launch it as early as March. This would bring the new devices to the market sooner to take some sales away from Apple.
The lineup is said to be pretty similar to this year’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ but with the expected upgrades and a new camera system. It would make sense to keep a similar look as last year rather than a full revamp, but a completely new device may compete better against the iPhone X.
If the device lineup is launched early, we only hope that no aspect will be rushed. We don’t want a repeat of the Note 7.
