Galaxy S9 and S9+ release date set for 'early March,' stacked motherboards in tow

Just as rumored, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ would be hitting the conveyor bells as soon as next week, quite a bit earlier than their predecessors the S8 and S8+ did, as Samsung's 2018 flagships are expected to be released in early March to eager fans, after a likely February 25th announcement.

the gap between exynos9810 and sdm845 is too high

I think the biggest highlight of The S9 should be: The ARM v8.1 DynamIQ. It's a MAJOR leap in smartphone hardware. All 8 cores will be humming and singing along, the cache will be shared across all 8 cores so there will (or at least 'should') be no hiccups, no stutters in performance as the big juicier A75/Kryo/Mongoose cores will be on stand-by and ready to give their extra boost virtually instantaneously. Couple that configuration with Oreo which so happens to be the FIRST version of Android that boots faster than iOS11 and we have a... Winner! If only the 'winner' had un-curved edges and fatter 2:1 aspect ratio... Oh well, G'Day!

I am totally interested in the galaxy s9+ if I can get the exynos model here in the states with GSM and Wi-Fi calling support. Wi-Fi calling is just a must for me at this point. Pls Samsung, dell the exynos version as unlocked with Wi-Fi calling enabled in the US and make all the carrier version snapdragon.
