According to leaked images on social news aggregation platform Reddit, the leaked smartphone will feature a 5.48-inch FHD display, 12 MP front camera and 15 MP rear camera. The smartphone would come with 64 GB of internal storage and 4 GB RAM.

It will be powered by a 3,130 mAh battery and will also support Quick Charge 4+ technology. The dimensions of the device are expected to be 148 x 73.4 x 7.4 mm and it will be weighing 156 g. The leak also suggests that it will come with Android 8.1 Oreo and IP68 rating to make it water and Dust resistant.

However, considering Samsung will be making the Snapdragon 845 chip, it is safe to assume that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 / S9+ would be the first smartphones with the latest from Qualcomm. Apart from Samsung, the Xiaomi's Mi7 is also expected to be housing the Snapdragon 845.
