Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are finally official

If there's one brand that's making heads turn at the MWC this year, it's definitely Samsung where the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus have been officially announced, with groundbreaking camera technology that's like no other. Under the hood, the Galaxy S9, S9+ expected to be powered by Samsung's own, the Exynos 9810 clocked at 1.9GHz in normal and 2.9GHz in turbo modes. Being able to switch between f/2.4 and f/1.5, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will have the flexibility to take photos and videos in different lighting situations. You may have already heard a few things about the new phone through myriad leaks, but if you want to know the key features you are at the right place.

However, that's unlikely to be an accurate reflection of pricing, since it doesn't take into account Value-Added Tax - however, it's clear the Galaxy S9 will be more expensive than its predecessor.

Samsung is the first major brand to launch its flagship smartphones every year. A fingerprint sensor will also be present at the back of the phone while the front-facing camera has yet to be confirmed if they will also receive a dual-setup treatment.

The top dog in the Android phone space is due for a refresh next week.

The company has incorporated several advanced features such as built in live automatic translator in its camera app, which could translate over 50 languages.

Last year, the two Galaxy S8 handsets were nearly identical, other than the screen size. One feature Samsung may bring to its new phones will be stereo speakers, according to the site.

A 93 percent screen-to-body ratio is expected from the upcoming Galaxy S9, an improvement from the 83 percent ratio featured by its predecessor, the Galaxy S8.

Samsung first teased a February 25 reveal for what most presumed to be the S9 in late January.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will lay down a challenge to Apple's premium iPhone X.

But if you don't wish to use external storage source, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge 128GB is also available at a discounted price. Users are holding onto their phones for longer while rising prices of high-end devices could be putting consumers off. The camera UI is also improved, and while shooting slo-mo videos, you can also select an area which detects motion and automatically activates the slow-motion capture.
