By now, you’ve probably heard that the Samsung Galaxy S9 is coming, and the latest leaks are making it seem like the company has an upcoming flagship smartphone for the Galaxy S line-up.
But while the latest Galaxy Note 8 rumors seem to confirm this, we haven’t seen much of what Samsung has to show us.
We do know that the company is working on a new phone with an Android 6.0 Marshmallow interface, and we know that Samsung will have a larger-screen, curved display for the S9.
There’s also some new hardware to talk about, including a new S Pen stylus that we’ve seen leaked before.
The company’s Galaxy S 9 could be a big deal, if the company can keep the devices’ price under $200.
While this is a big, new phone, we’re still waiting to see what it will be.
So let’s take a look at the top 10 best and 10 worst Samsung Galaxy 9 leaks to see if there’s anything new to report.

Xiaomi Mi 5 Pro – S5.7-inch 8-megapixel, 16-megapixels, 5-megawatt battery, 3,000mAh, 5G LTE, Android 7.1.1, dual cameras, 3D cameraThe Galaxy Note 10 and Note 11 may be two of the best smartphones Samsung has made in years, but there’s still a lot of room for improvement.
Samsung is looking to improve on the Galaxy Note 7, which was the first flagship smartphone to come with a 3,800mAh battery, and that upgrade came with the Note 10, but it’s unclear if the Note 11 will receive a similar upgrade.
The Galaxy S7 is also a phone that Samsung could use to get a lot more out of its software, but that upgrade hasn’t been made to the Galaxy 9 yet.
We also don’t know much about the Galaxy J series phones, as the company only showed off a prototype at CES.
The most important takeaway from this list is that Samsung is clearly getting more out the software it’s developing, which could be an important part of its future success.
In addition to this list, Samsung is also planning to make the S7, S8, and S9 smartphones more affordable, which is why the company will be making more S9 models available to consumers.
The S9 and S10 could be two flagship smartphones that the new phones could be used as an alternative to the Samsung Note 7.
They would also be the first phones that Samsung would be making available for purchase to customers that already own a Galaxy S series phone.
This could help to sell the new Galaxy phones at a lower price point, which would make them more appealing to customers.
In the event that Samsung decides to make a new flagship smartphone that will replace the Galaxy 10, it could be that the Galaxy Pro series of smartphones is the way forward.
However, the company may be using the S10 as a stepping stone to the S8 or the Galaxy Solo, two phones that are expected to launch in the second half of 2017.
The latter would be the flagship smartphone the company would be using to start building its Galaxy lineup, and this would be a good move for Samsung to take if it wants to make another big jump in terms of volume.
If the Galaxy 11 is a good replacement, it will only be possible if Samsung’s new flagship phones aren’t the best phones Samsung has ever made.
