For the most part what Samsung has been doing over the years is offer its flagship handset in two variants: one made using Qualcomm’s chipset, and the other made using Samsung’s own chipset (both destined for different markets). It is largely expected that this practice will continue in 2018 with the upcoming Galaxy S9.
This is why when Samsung announced the Exynos 9810 last month, many speculated that it could be the chipset that will find its way into one of the versions of the Galaxy S9. That being said, details about the chipset were scarce, but not to worry as Samsung will be unveiling it in full, thanks to a recent teaser announcement that the company has posted onto Twitter.

According to the teaser, Samsung will be unveiling the “next” Exynos chipset on the 4th of January, 2018, a little less than a week ahead of CES 2018. Presumably the chipset in question will be the Exynos 9810, unless Samsung has a newer chipset that they plan on announcing (we doubt that).
In any case we should find out soon enough so do check back with us then for the details. In the meantime both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have recently been spotted at the FCC, hinting that we could be getting closer to an official announcement, which last we heard could take place in February possibly at MWC 2018.
