Samsung is all set to unveil its 2018 flagship handsets and successor to the massively popular Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ from last year, the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The company has already sent out invites confirming that the handsets will be unveiled on February 25, a day ahead of MWC 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Release Date, Price, News, Specs, and Rumors
Samsung has launched two new color variants of the Galaxy S9: Sunrise Gold and Burgundy Red. Samsung is probably making this move to help boost sales of its flagship handset which have reportedly been less than stellar.
While Google launched its ARCore augmented reality platform back in August of last year, it wouldn’t be until October that Samsung’s Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and the Galaxy Note 8 would be added to the support devices list.
Samsung says that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are the fastest phones in the market based on the data obtained from Ookla which runs Speedtest.
It’s not often that an accessory is perfect. Yet this Mophie design gets as close as it possibly can, building inexorably to something of a huge caveat: its price. But hopefully this look through the tech and design will convince you that this is worth $100 or so, if you occasionally live on the ragged battery edge…
The standard model of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ comes with 64GB of built-in storage ready to go, but, for some customers, that might not be enough.
Data from analytics firm Canalys indicates that Samsung shipped 8 million units of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ combined in its launch month. The performance is similar to that of the Galaxy S8, though lower than the 9 million units that Samsung managed to ship of the Galaxy S7 series in 2016.
Samsung has packed the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to the brim with features. And I am not talking about just hardware features but software ones as well. You will find plenty of features to play around on your Galaxy S9. Surprisingly though, there’s one very basic feature missing from the handset: call recording.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are among the best flagship handsets released this year. Packed to the brim with features, they run on Samsung’s latest Experience UI which has been further improved since it first debuted on the Galaxy S8 with new features and enhancements. However, these improvements have ended up making a simple task of setting up a custom ringtone or notification sound on the handset pretty complex.
One of my favorite features of Samsung’s Experience UI is the ability to customize the system font type. While most OEMs do allow users to change the system font size on their devices, Samsung is the only one that allows users to change the font type as well. This stands true for its latest flagship handset: the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
