Samsung hasn't even got its new Galaxy S8 or S8+ smartphones in the hands-on consumers yet, and we're already reporting on the new Galaxy S9 that is reportedly in production already.


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.
