With 8GB of RAM and possibility of modular design, Samsung Galaxy S9 now seems to be something from another world!
It seems like smartphones are going to continue embarrassing PCs for the entire foreseeable future now. After stealing the user base and use cases of PCs now they’ve started leaving computers behind in the terms of RAM capacity as we saw launches of multiple smartphones with 6GB RAMs this year.
However, based on what we’ve learned it seems that even 6GB is about to be challenged very soon, and that too by none other than the industry leader Samsung.
That’s right – some of our highly trusted sources have told us on the condition of anonymity that Samsung is planning to launch Galaxy S9 with 8GB RAM next year. The device, which will be first 2018 flagship from Samsung, is likely to come with this powerful RAM capacity as Sammy doesn’t want to leave any stones unturned to make it special.
It’s also worth pointing out that Samsung has been consistently increasing the RAM capacity in the recent days after keeping it unchanged for quite some time. Samsung Galaxy Note 5, S7, Note 7 and S8 all came with 4GB of RAM. That’s a long time period of 1 and a half year with no change to the RAM capacity.
So recently we saw Samsung going to the next level with launch of Galaxy Note 8, as the device was launched with 6GB of RAM. Similarly, it had also launched a 6GB RAM version of its Galaxy S8+ smartphone after its launch due to consumer demand. Needless to say that if company has to stay relevant, besides Infinity displays RAMs are another area where it needs to do the hard work. Therefore, it doesn’t come as a surprise that company is considering 8GB RAM for Galaxy S9.
Samsung Galaxy S9 is also rumored to be a modular smartphone, and probably the first device to launch with Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 845 processor. We’ll keep you updated as more details emerge about it.
