The launch of\u00a0Galaxy S8\u00a0didn\u2019t go this year as planned by Samsung, as a direct result of Galaxy Note 7 recall. However, Samsung\u2019s Galaxy S8 devices were still first Android devices to bring to the market a crucial critical component, one that other rivals lacked.\r\nGalaxy S9 and S9+ could be the first devices with Snapdragon 845\r\nFrom the looks of it, Samsung may pull off the same trick with the upcoming Galaxy S9.\r\nSamsung and Qualcomm had an exclusive deal for Galaxy S8 that was the reason Galaxy S8 was the first device in the world with a Snapdragon 835 packed inside. The devices like LG G6 that LG launched more than a month before Galaxy S8 was unveiled suffered the consequences of not having Snapdragon 835.\u00a0The 2017 LG flagship was hardly a best-selling device, and specs may have played a significant role in that.\r\nThe Snapdragon 835 is one of the various available 10nm chips shipping inside smartphone this year. The Apple\u2019s A10X A11 Bionic and Samsung\u2019s Exynos 8895 also included in that list. LG had to rely on the older chipset for its flagship device.\r\nThe Snapdragon 845 that is going to launch next year will be Galaxy S9\/S9+ exclusive according to Russian Blogger Eldar Murtazin\u2019s tweet. If\u00a0what he said is correct then it could be terrible news for Samsung\u2019s compititors looking to unveil smartphones next year.\r\nMurtazin also said the phone would launch a month earlier than usual, without specifying what that means.\r\nWhen will Galaxy S9 launch?\r\nThe Galaxy S8 was an exception for Samsung, which was forced to unveil it in late March. In previous years, Samsung scheduled press conferences at the Mobile World Congress to announce the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7. That\u2019s usually a late February or early March affair.
