It’s also the 10th anniversary of the W series, which is still popular in Asia. They are priced higher than typical Samsung global flagships, like the S8 and Note 8.

The South Korean company is testing two S9 and two S9 plus variants – each with single SIM and dual SIM versions of the two flagship handsets being trialled.

This would not be the first time that Samsung has tested out different configuration of a smartphone before committing to one specification for the launch event. The Galaxy Note 7 had different variants available around the world, both of which had been tested in Europe prior to the public release of the phablet.

New Galaxy S9 Leak 'Confirms' Samsung's Powerful Choice

  New Galaxy S9 Leak 'Confirms' Samsung's Powerful Choice Quietly, with little fanfare, Samsung has publicly fired the gun on its new 10nm system-on-chip production line. Chips that are expected to power the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus flagships. Traditionally Samsung’s Galaxy S handsets have come with two flavours of system-on-chips – Samsung’s in-house Exynos SoC, and Qualcomm’s SnapDragon SoC. Because of the varying frequencies and systems offered by 4G networks around the world, Samsung needs to cover the various options so the Galaxy S handsets can be truly ‘world’ phones. That means mixing up the production with Exynos and Qualcomm.That’s not the only difference.

That Samsung is testing out a variant of the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus handsets should not come as a surprise. The real surprise would be if the dual-SIM variant makes its way out of the Chinese market into the wider world. Much as I’m sold on the utility of dual SIM handsets (easily found in the UK through handsets from OnePlus and WileyFox, to name two), there seems to be a reluctance by networks to bring dual SIM handsets to the mainstream in western markets. Perhaps there’s to much revenue from roaming fees while travelling around Europe and flitting between countries?

There’s also Samsung’s approach to supporting microSD cards. In previous dual-SIM handsets the second SIM card sits in the same physical space as the microSD card – it’s a dual function space on the card holder. There are a number of indications that suggest Samsung might be (once more) considering dropping SD card support from a flagship handset and relying on a bump up in the internal memory. If that’s the case, then where would the second SIM card go?

I’d expect the S9 to continue supporting microSD, I’d expect BRIC editions of the handset to continue offering dual SIM support, and I’d expect the variants that reach North America and Europe will be limited to single SIM operations… unfortunately.

Razer gives its phone a major camera update .
When the Razer Phone was first announced, we didn't know what to expect.The Razer Phone is a solid flagship with a 5.7-inch, quad HD display (and a rare 120Hz refresh rate), a huge battery and loud front-facing speakers. The only problem? The camera is pretty average. Thankfully, Razer has heard fan complaints and pushed out a sizeable software update. Exactly what it's changed is a mystery, but the result should be "improved picture quality" with less noise, punchier colors and clearer shadows.
