Samsung has confirmed the launch of its next-generation Exynos chip. The tech giant took it Twitter to announce the launch scheduled for January 4, just days ahead of the global consumer electronics and tech tradeshow - CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

Besides the repositioning of the fingerprint scanner, both the devices are likely to come with minor upgrades over their predecessors – the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
