But it looks like we can expect the new Snapdragon 845 processor to power some of the best 2018 flagship smartphones, including Samsung's much-touted Galaxy S9/S9+, LG's next-gen G7/G7+ smartphones (and their V40 handset), HTC's upcoming U12/U12+, the Google Pixel 3 (XL, too), and even Samsung's next-gen Galaxy Note 9 smartphone.

The new tease is coming from a leaked image from China, which shows what smartphone will be powered by the Snapdragon 845. It could be fake, but we know the Snapdragon 845 is real - and we also know most of these smartphone are coming out next year. Now I want all of them, gosh.
