New Samsung Galaxy S9 No Match for iPhone 8, iPhone X

  • The Galaxy S9's dual-aperture camera is great marketing

The Galaxy S9 is almost identical to its predecessor with curved edges, smooth round corners and the lower space housing the 3.5mm port, USB Type-C and mono speaker grill.

Overall, Samsung Galaxy S9 is a great smartphone, and I don't hate it. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are already available for pre-booking via Samsung's online retail store, although it makes no mention of price specifics. The addition of Dolby Atmos will deliver three-dimensional sound to provide you with a theater-like experience. Many will agree that the Galaxy S9 is just more of the same, albeit with more powerful internals and a very impressive camera. And if you buy through Mobiles.co.uk they also have a Double Your Memory promotion, which means you'll get a free free 64GB microSD card, in addition to the phone's built in 64GB of storage - so you'll definitely have space for all of your selfies.

Samsung unveiled new smartphones with largely unchanged designs and incremental improvements such as a better camera - accompanied by a second annual price increase for many customers.

The invite features Samsung's promotional "The Camera".

Samsung is also using both the facial recognition and iris scanners to unlock your smartphones more securely.

We will put both the phones through their paces once we have the review units, but going by first impressions, the Galaxy S9 sure does promise a lot as far as camera performance goes. Samsung calls it AR Emoji.

British police sift through rubble at scene of fatal Leicester blast
Five people have now been confirmed dead following an explosion and fire at a shop in Leicester last night (Sunday 25 February). I thought it was TJ's [the takeaway next door to where the explosion took place] because they have the open flame.


To compare, the Galaxy S8 had a slightly narrower f/1.7 aperture (the higher the number, the narrower the aperture, and the less light it lets in), and it was the best low-light photography performer by miles.

Everything else on the S9 and S9 Plus remains the same, including the IP68 water and dust resistance and support for wireless charging.

Last year's top-end Snapdragon 835 processor is matched with 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, and a dual-lens 12MP + 13MP camera on the back. The camera has a 12-megapixel resolution, and you can additionally record super slow-motion videos at 960fps. The rear side features a 12 MP camera with optical image stabilization.

What do you think of Samsung's AR Emoji?

Lee Yuan-jung, vice president of mobile and IT division of Samsung Taiwan, said that the S9 series devices are slated to hit the markets including Taiwan on March 16, adding that they will be available to pre-order by Taiwan consumers from March 5.

This year Samsung is also focusing on audio.
