The Samsung Galaxy S9, like all the new Samsung smartphones, is winning rave reviews, and rightly so! Some of the key features include:
All of those rave reviews mention the S9's camera, particularly its ability to capture great low-light photos. This is thanks to the F1.5 aperture mode and multi frame noise reduction, so photos taken in a darker light come out bright and detailed. Another game-changing feature is the Dual Aperture lens which adapts, according to Samsung, like the human eye. This means the lens adjusts to various light levels and delivers optimum results in full sunshine or in the shadows of the evening.
The 6.2-inch screen of the Samsung Galaxy S9 appears bigger than it really is, thanks to its Infinity Display. Your content, including photos and videos, are taken to the limits of the phone. It's an edge-to-edge display that brings a touch of big screen, cinematic quality to the palm of your hand.
The S9 offers another cinematic experience beyond the visual realm. Dolby Atmos delivers three-dimensional sound, while the stereo speakers tuned by AKG further enhances the audio capabilities of this smartphone. The new speakers generate 40% higher volume than S8's speakers.
Unlike many smartphones, the Galaxy S9 can be used effectively and safely in less than ideal weather, thanks to its high IP68 rating so you can continue to send texts or take photos on that ground-breaking camera.
Intelligent Scan is new to the Galaxy S9, combining face recognition and an iris scan for easy unlocking, even in low light.
Samsung Galaxy S9 looks like the predecessor S8 from the outside except that the fingerprint sensor now resides below the camera. However, there are many improvements inside the shell. New features include cool new AI Emojis and a live translator (just point the camera at a sign or text and it translates the content instantly).
There are four colours to choose from: coral blue, midnight black, lilac purple and titanium grey. The Galaxy S9+ complements S9.
A newer model Samsung Galaxy S10 SM-G973F 8GB 128GB was released in November 2018.
