A new report today provides more concrete details, especially regarding the camera system, and a possible earlier announcement. More exactly, it's said that the new phones should make their first public appearance at CES 2018 (January 9 - 12) in Las Vegas - slightly earlier than previously expected.

While you might not see any unbelievable deals on the iPhone X, chances are there will be some better than usual offers, and some good deals on the Samsung S8 and the newly released Google Pixel 2. If you've not already been poring over its glam features, you can read our full Samsung Galaxy S8 review to get the lowdown. The leak doesn't name the Galaxy S9 Mini however, it states that it will be a "full screen" device with a display coming in under 5-inches.

The renders included below, courtesy of BGR, were released by smartphone case manufacturer Ghostek and give us a sense of what we can expect from the new phone. What is different though is on the back as the horizontal camera sensor has now been replaced with a vertical design which is similar to the iPhone X.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will likely arrive with an S9+.

The processor is also expected to be upgraded to the powerful Snapdragon 845 10nm model, while RAM will be increased to 4 GB for the S9 and 6 GB for the S9+, backed by 64 GB of storage and a microSD card.

Finally, Samsung will apparently launch a backwards-compatible DeX dock station which will let the devices lay flat, so owners can use them as a virtual keyboard or a touchpad.
