The next-gen Exynos chip will launch during an official event that is scheduled to take place on January 4, 2018. The headline of this even is "Beyond a Component" and there are no details for now, but more should be unveiled in the week to come.

Hearing over and over again that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ might launch sooner than expected does not turn this rumor into reality, but it looks like the chip that should land inside these flagships will be revealed next week, so in the end we might see an early release after all. 

For now, the "early release" part mentioned above remains in the rumor territory. On the other hand, the January 4 launch date is as official as it gets. The date has been announced on Twitter by a new post that was published by the Samsung Exynos official account. More details should surface in the days to come since this post only reads the following: "Discover #TheNextExynos that goes beyond a component. Stay tuned."

Samsung revealed some early details of the upcoming Exynos 9810 chip last month, but there is still a lot to find out. For now, the things we know about the specs and features of this processor include a third-gen custom processing core, an upgraded GPU, and a maximum bandwidth of 1.2 Gbps that can be accomplished through 6x carrier aggregation, thanks to a Category 18 LTE modem.

As it happened with most Galaxy flagships so far, the global versions of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be the ones to use the new Exynos 9810. The units aimed at the US market will probably use the most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor available in large quantities (most likely the Snapdragon 945).

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
