Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ get certified by the FCC


The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ have just received their FCC certification. Hold your horses, though - this is by no means indicating that the two flagships are arriving earlier than usual; we still largely expect them to swing by a few days before MWC '18 next year kicks off in late February.

The FCC regulation agency has approved devices with the codenames SM-G960F and SM-G965F, which coincide with the expected model aliases. The certification means that the two devices are now closer to being released in the US than ever before and is merely the legal groundwork for the handsets' arrival on this most important market.

As usual with FCC certifications, no specs or anything remotely intriguing is visible in the listing. Bummer.

We already know that Samsung's 2018 flagship stock won't be making an appearance at the CES trade show in a week or so, at least not to the wide public. As we already mentioned, late February is when we are most likely getting to see the duo unveiled officially.

UPDATE: It seems that the respective FCC pages have been subsequently taken down.

A new phone by Oems should be 2 year cycle. Ugly Tv remote control look a like and ugly 18.9 screens.

To be honest, barring another shift in devices themselves -as in something like the jump from buttons to touch screens-, I don't really think anyone is going to be toppling Apple and Samsung's pretty firm domination of the upper end of the market.

Idiot ass comment. The S7/S7E look nothing like the S8/+.
