According to the latest reports, Samsung is working in phases on the development of the Galaxyh S9 - with the first phase of the S9 development being the display. Sources have said: "Since late last month, a display team for the S9 has started the development work with aims to supply samples from mid-April. About a month after the display, other key parts such as modules are expected to develop in phases".

Samsung recently secured a huge OLED display order from Apple, who wanted 160 million OLED displays, which saw Samsung invest a massive $9 billion into OLED production.

After all of the issues surrounding the Galaxy Note 7, the company doesn't want to be ill prepared - so the preparation into the Galaxy S9 is starting much earlier than usual.
