It’s unclear what the mystery device will be called, but reliable leaker Ice Universe, who correctly predicted rumors about the S8, Note 8 and the S9, believes it could be prepping a newer version of the S9.
Rumors began to build earlier this month when Chinese wireless regulator Tenaa shared images of a device called the ‘SM-G8850’.
At the time, it was said that the phone would feature a 5.8-inch screen, but now it seems that it will be a much larger ‘super AMOLED’ display.
Other possible specs include a 12 megapixel camera, a faster, high-end processor and an edge-to-edge screen.
Additionally, the front screen is expected to be flat, breaking from the firm’s traditionally curved display.
It will also have a different design on the back panel, moving the dual-lens camera to the lefthand side of the device (reminiscent of the iPhone), instead of it being next to the fingerprint sensor.

This should prevent what has become a popular issue among Galaxy owners, where their finger often smudges the phone’s camera.
At 6.3 inches, the rumored device will have a much bigger screen than the S9, which has a 5.8-inch display.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy S9+ has a 6.2-inch screen.
Samsung hasn’t released any information on the pricing or release of the mystery device.
The firm’s latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S9, was released just under two months ago at Mobile World Congress.
The Galaxy S9 (£739/$720) and S9 plus (£869/$839) have both been dubbed ‘iPhone X killers’, with a slew of new features including dual-aperture technology, AR emojis and a slow-motion tool for video footage.
The S9 features the same screen, same virtual home button and same battery capacity as the S8.

The new models also have fun with selfies. Snap a selfie, and Samsung’s software will turn that into an emoji version of you for sharing.
It’s usually a static image, though you can produce an animated version – much like the iPhone X’s Animoji feature.
Meanwhile, Samsung’s Bixby digital assistant mimics a similar Google feature that pulls up information on landmarks or other items you’ve just photographed.
New Bixby capabilities let it instantly translate signs (point the camera, and the phone replaces the sign’s text in a matching color and font) and provide nutritional info for that restaurant meal you’re splurging on.
