Release of the Samsung S9

The famous mobile phone brand, Samsung never ceases to surprise everyone! Founded in 1938 in South Korea, it is now one of the leading brands of smartphones and other hi-tech gadgets. Fast forward to 2018, it is now set to launch its new creation, the Samsung S9. Its official launch date is the 16th of March 2018. Its cost starts as from £739 if you buy it directly from Samsung. Discover more about this new smartphone below.


With the new Samsung S9, enjoy a 5.8-inch QHD and Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2960 resolution. This means a super-crisp and clear image! With a screen ratio of 18.5:9 and slimmer bezels at the top and bottom, it provides the best display in the market. The AMOLED technology is still the best one that you can have on a mobile phone today.


Have you seen the Infinity Display design of the Galaxy S8? Samsung S9 comes with a similar design but with a few improvements. It has a glass back, rounded display on the front and slimmer bezels, trying to merge the screen with the body of the handset. Another improvement you will notice is the iris scanner hole being well-hidden.


It is being whispered that Samsung S9 has re-imagined the camera! A single lens camera is found on the rear. It has a 12MP rear sensor with optical image stabilisation. A new dual-aperture technology is also in place for the camera to adjust the aperture according to the scene you are shooting. If you are shooting something darker, the camera will select the f/1.5 aperture, which is the widest ever in a smartphone.

There are also other available features like: slow-motion, automatic motion detect, with the camera automatically recording upon detecting a movement, and an 8MP shooter with an f/1.7 aperture in the front. With such features, you can always expect to capture photos with more colour and detail.


How about the battery? Samsung S9 contains a 3000mAh battery similarly to Galaxy S8. Its efficiency is expected to be better than S8 though, because of its new processing technology inside. Looking for wireless charging? Not to worry, it also comes with a wireless charging technology. Without plugging it in, you can thus use different types of charging pads. But if you want to charge your Samsung S9 in a minimum amount of time, make use of its official charger.

Processing Power

With the latest Qualcomm processor and LTE Cat 18 support, the new Samsung S9 can download at a maximum speed of 1.2 Gbps on a supported mobile network. Those living in the US can get a version of the S9 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. But if you live in the UK or in other countries, you will be able to buy it with the Exynos 9810 chipset, created by Samsung.

Enjoy 4GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board space on this phone. You can also insert a microSD card with up to 256GB of extra space to save all types of files. Using your new Samsung S9, enjoy different types of online games at Vegas Spins which is also a responsive website accessible on different types of devices.

Other Features

With your new Samsung S9, discover other features like the AR Emoji. It stands for augmented reality emoji. When you take a selfie using the front camera, it creates an emoji based on your looks! This feature uses face recognition and recognises over 18 different expressions.

Make the most of the Bixby Vision improvements when you access the camera. It allows you to enjoy new features, like tracking the place you are in or pointing at food to estimate their calories. Want to translate a menu? Use Live Translation to point at a menu or text and auto-translate it! To be able to use this option, you will need a working internet connection and a little bit of patience. It can be very useful when you are travelling or trying to learn a new language.

So, if you are a fan of Samsung smartphones, look forward to the release of the new Samsung S9 and get ready for a different user experience.
