Hands-On Look at the New Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9 Plus

Hands-On Look at the New Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9 Plus

Nowadays, everyone has great devices to offer, but it's all about how that phone's individual features play off of one another, how polished the software is, and how fluid the user experience is. How did we function before we had a constant form of communication, our camera and our dating app all in our back pocket? The overall dimensions of the handset are quite similar to S8.

Notably, the phones retain their IP68 water and dust-resistance, microSD card functionality, and headphone jack. Overall, the phone looks premium.

According to the Inquirer, there is good news for Galaxy fans as Samsung moved the fingerprint scanner below the camera.

The second rear camera on the S9 Plus has an f/2.4 lens that gets you two times closer to your subject than the wide-angle camera and allows for portrait-mode blurring effects known as Live Focus. An expansive 5.8-inch QHD+ (1440×2960) Super AMOLED display stretches across the device in a unique 18.5:9 aspect ratio, complete with curved edges. The Galaxy S9 could be priced upwards of Rs 57,000, while the Galaxy S9+ at Rs 67,000. This feature has only ever appeared on one smartphone ever, and that was 2009's Nokia N86.

The Galaxy S9 features some exciting upgrades - notably a powerful, innovative camera and a faster processor - but it's not a major upgrade from last year's model. Both the smartphones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (in the US) or Exynos 9810 SoC (in other markets).

The camera is said to be the highlights of the phone. Notably, the tagline of the flagship is "The Camera".

Available for customers in the US via reservation today, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are set to arrive March 16. On the front, it has 8 MP sensor. The devices will also support 4K video recording and 720p super slow motion at 960 fps. Both the smartphones come with varying apertures called dual apertures. In the case of the Galaxy S9 phones, those are f/1.5 and f/2.4.

The company also introduced the AR Emoji with the launch of the new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.

As many have pointed out, Samsung has also tried to improve the illusion with the bezels by making the various elements stored there less visually distracting.

So, how does it differ from last year's model?

The initial reactions to the launch of the Galaxy S9 lineup were positive, with the smartphones being set to become available for pre-orders on Friday, though some retailers and wireless carriers around the world are already offering advanced orders in select countries.
