Come 2018 we expect that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+, that is assuming they’ll be sticking to the same release pattern we’ve been seeing for the past couple of years. Right now details about the phones exist pretty much as rumors, save for a recent Samsung announcement that more or less confirmed the chipset the phones could use.

According to the announcement, the Galaxy S9 is most likely to use the Samsung Exynos 9810 chipset which will be the latest from the company. However it seems that we might now know the amount of RAM accompanying the phone, thanks to a recent Geekbench sighting which has revealed that the Galaxy S9+ (the larger model) will come with 4GB of RAM.

In a way this isn’t too surprising or shocking, especially when you consider the fact that its predecessor also came with 4GB of RAM (there is a 6GB model but it seems to be limited to South Korea and China). However given this day and age, we would have expected Samsung to maybe bump that amount up to 6GB or maybe even 8GB, so while 4GB isn’t surprising, it is a little disappointing.

That being said there’s no way to confirm if these benchmarks are really that of the Galaxy S9+ since they can be faked, so take it with a grain of salt for now, but we expect that in a few more months we should have all the official details.
