Although Samsung might take a while to ensure the batteries inside the new Galaxy flagships are safe, the international Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ models have been already certified by the FCC. Sadly, there is no official launch date set yet.

The upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagships have been in the rumor mill for a while, but now they have just reached an important checkpoint on their way to the market: earlier this week, both have been certified by the FCC. Sadly, the official FCC documents do not offer any technical details or a standard design outline, probably because Samsung submitted them to the FCC almost two months ago, when some design details may not have been approved yet.

According to the model numbers revealed by the FCC documents that comply with Samsung's existing naming conventions, the SM-G960F and SM-G965F are the international unlocked models of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagships. Both have been tested in China, apparently since November.

Although Samsung has been releasing new Galaxy handsets in March lately, some of the recent rumors claim that the Galaxy S9 lineup is on its way to an early release that might occur in February, just in time for this year's Mobile World Congress tech show.

According to most of the rumors and leaks we heard so far, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and its larger sibling will have 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch displays, next to the 10 nm Exynos 9810 processor. Obviously, the operating system pre-loaded will be at least Android 8.0 Oreo, but we would not be surprised to see them hit the market with Android 8.1 onboard, either.

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.
