Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus First Impressions

Samsung is expected to announced the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at MWC

For other vendors that might be an issue, but not Samsung.

Little is unknown about the S9 series before its announcement.

The big, highlight new feature is the S9's new camera system, which comes as a single lens on the S9 and a dual camera on the S9 Plus.

The US will be getting the Snapdragon 845 model, while most other markets will receive the Exynos 9810 SoC.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ come with many highlights.

One thing that Samsung added is dual aperture rear camera that can shoot photos even in very low light condition.

This is coupled with a new feature called Automatic Motion Detect, which allows users to capture an important event in slo-mo automatically, without having to wait around and manually snap.

The Galaxy S9 has the Bixby program in its camera which enables the phone to provide rapid translation of foreign languages when the camera is placed over a text.

With IP68 water and dust resistance and wireless charging, the GalaxyS9 and S9+ now support expandable memory of up to 400GB with a micro SD card and are equipped with the latest premium application processors. He also hinted that it will be arriving as a new category but refrained from revealing any information on the specs of the phone. The biggest change is that the camera aperture now physically opens and closes.

Samsung's Animoji feature, AR Emoji, allows you create a 3D emoji version of yourself, which mirrors your movements and facial expressions.

While the S9's camera is "markedly different" in quality from older smartphones that people already own "consumers may delay purchase because of rising flagship prices", IHS Markit said in a research note.

For the first time in a major phone, the S9 will let you change the camera's aperture to let in more light, making for better images in dark settings. This is the conundrum Samsung faced creating the Galaxy S9, but ...

While the personalized AR emoji feature does a solid job of mimicking, the bunny or cat characters were less accurate and expressive during our tests. Pre-orders start today and will be fulfilled from the 9th March.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ deliver an enhanced entertainment experience with powerful stereo speakers tuned by AKG, immersive audio with Dolby Atmos and a refined edge-to-edge Infinity Display - a key staple in Samsung's design heritage. For security, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ is protected by Knox 3.1 and comes with three biometric authentication options - iris, fingerprint sensor below the camera module, and facial recognition.

Putting AI and AR technologies to use, Samsung has finally given Bixby the teeth that move it from kiddie's table to the adult's.

The S9's hardware design is unlikely to appeal to users who have purchased a recent Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus device in the previous year, but for those with older handsets who are the real target market, this is not a problem.

Samsung has also improved and upgraded its flagship features and its pricing should be about same as Samsung Galaxy S8.
