Rumor: Samsung Galaxy S9 to get most of the initial Snapdragon 845 supply

This spring’s Android flagship crop was in large part dictated by Samsung and its decision to hoard the entire initial Snapdragon 835 supply for the North American version of its Galaxy S8. As a result, LG decided to use the last-gen Snapdragon 821 in its G6 instead, while others, including HTC, Xiaomi, and Sony, had to release their devices later.

And it seems this tactic worked well for the Korean giant, which is now rumored to do the very same thing in 2018 with the Snapdragon 845 and its next flagship, the Galaxy S9. The information comes from a …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 makes a quick appearance on Samsung's U.S. website

This coming Wednesday, we will see the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Just the other day, Sammy’s U.S. website jumped the gun by accidentally posting the U.S. unlocked version of the high-end phablet. The model number, UZKAXAA, fits in with the stateside unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S8. The listing has been since taken down and can no longer be found on the website.

There really isn’t much that we can take away from this brief appearance except that 64GB of native storage will indeed be found on the base model of the Galaxy Note 8. And it also suggests that the unlocked …
