If we can overlook the unmitigated disaster that is the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung has, by and large, had a pretty good year. The company’s S7 lineup proved to be extremely popular both with reviewers and consumers, and leaks surrounding next year’s Galaxy S8 are pretty intriguing.
As we highlighted earlier today, some rumors claim that the S8 will feature a 5.2-inch 4K display and will come jam-packed with a 3.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 6GB of RAM and more.
But the Samsung Galaxy S8 isn’t the only Samsung smartphone we’ve seen make waves in the rumor mill this week. According to a report from TechRadar, Samsung’s 2018 Galaxy S9 may take water resistance to the next level thanks to a recent deal the company recently inked with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), an R&D lab that falls under the purview of the U.S. Department of Energy.
