    Samsung is planning to preview the much-anticipated Galaxy S9 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada in January, with a launch event scheduled to take place in March—as it did for the Galaxy S8—reports VentureBeat.

    The Galaxy S9, according to reliable tipster Evan Blass, will sport a near-identical design to the Galaxy S8, though it will benefit from a repositioned fingerprint sensor and an updated rear-facing camera setup.

    Both the Galaxy S9 (SM-G960) and Galaxy S9+ (SM-G965) are rumored to come with identical Infinity Displays to their predecessors—5.8- and 6.2-inches, respectively. They're also expected to feature the same 64GB of expandable storage.

    They should, however, pack an improved Exynos 9810/Snapdragon 845 processor and AKG-tuned stereo speakers, while the plus-sized variant will have 6GB of RAM as standard (versus 4GB) and a vertically-mounted, rear-facing dual-camera.

    Samsung's working on a new DeX docking station

    VentureBeat also noted that the firm is working on a backward-compatible DeX docking station that lets you use the handset's screen as a touchpad or virtual keyboard when it's laying flat, eliminating the need to carry a mouse and keyboard.

    Samsung’s DeX notebook needs to evolve the platform to be taken seriously

    A pretty wild rumor recently suggested that Samsung is developing a DeX notebook. Or, more specifically, the so-called DeXbook would combine the in-house desktop experience with Google's ChromeOS. It's a far-out idea but might work under the right circumstances. Or, at the very least, it would be a unique experiment to behold. However, as an […]
