Check out early renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, iterative upgrades, will make a cameo at CES

However, Samsung is reportedly taking these reports very seriously and planning to leave no stone unturned to fetch an enhanced iris scanner for its upcoming flagship device - Galaxy S9.

The two phones are said to be almost identical in appearance to their predecessors - to borrow a term, this will clearly be a "tock" model year. This is earlier than Samsung typically pulls the curtain back for new phones, but it's unclear exactly how much Samsung will be revealing at the trade show.

There could be a smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy S9 heading our way. VentureBeat also notes the addition of AKG stereo speakers, with Samsung working on a new DeX docking station where the S9 is used as a touchpad or virtual keyboard.

BGR has published some renders from a reliable source. But the presence of two camera sensors on the next Galaxy smartphone would make a close competitor against the iPhone X that that released in September with a vertically-aligned twin camera setup. It may still have a rear fingerprint sensor, might be modular, be powered by Snapdragon 845 or an Exynos 9810 processor, and will come in two variants as usual.

He says the wall he has promised to build along the border between the USA and Mexico is on the agenda. The region's mountains make it a hard area for people to cross illegally into the US from Mexico.

Meanwhile, the S9 will stick to a single camera, though retains this vertical placement to address a common complaint with the current generation.

Interestingly enough, Samsung may be changing some things up next year.

It will also only feature 4GB of RAM versus 6GB on the larger unit.

Both models will have 64GB of internal storage, microSD slots for additional storage and - believe it or not - 3.5mm headphone jacks.
