"Samsung aims to ship 43 million units of the S9 and S9 Plus although it can revise the sales goal depending on market conditions", said the unnamed source, adding, "The yield rate of the new flagship phones were taken into consideration".
Lastly, "later in 2018" will see Samsung push Oreo to the Galaxy Xcover4, Galaxy A8, Galaxy J3 Prime, Tab A8, Tab Active 2, and the Tab A 10.1. Released previous year, the smartphone was previously known as the A5, but the company has changed its name so that users associate it with the flagship models.
It's not like there's a need for a Microsoft Edition of Samsung's flagship smartphones anyway. According to Yonhap, Korean carriers sold about 180,000 Galaxy S9/S9 Plus units on the first day of pre-orders, versus 260,000 units for the Galaxy S8. The devices are backed by an exceptional set of features.

The Huawei Y9 (2018) comes with a 5.93-inch FHD+ LCD IPS display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio. But, the smartphone is being launched in the mid range price and even the features of the smartphone are not the high end.
Samsung doesn't need to revolutionize the smartphone industry in 2018 - it needs to iterate on all the hard work it did with the Galaxy S8 line past year. The Galaxy S9 holds up well and is clearly among the most durable smartphones released this year.
There's good news for other models too, including the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, both of which are planned to be updated in early April. Most major smartphone makers, including Samsung, Apple and Huawei saw their sales decline in the three months due to a longer handset-replacement cycle of consumers.
