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 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+.
With the Galaxy S9, Samsung has focused primarily on the camera. Apart from improved imaging performance, Samsung has also supercharged the slow-motion video recording capabilities of the handset.
Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, the company’s flagship handsets for 2018, are now on sale all over the world. Compared to their predecessor, the Galaxy S9 has received some major internal upgrades. This includes the usuals like a faster chipset and better display but also faster connectivity.
A number of Samsung Galaxy S9 owners have been complaining about the touch screen on their device not registering their touches.
With Android Oreo, Google unveiled Project Treble. This new project from the company was aimed at making Android updates quicker by making core parts of the OS modular. Sadly, not many Project Treble-compatible devices have hit the market so far so it is unclear if the project is a success or not. However, Project Treble has made it incredibly easy to boot an AOSP build of Android on compatible devices. The Galaxy S9 is compatible with Google’s Project Treble.
The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have failed to set the sales chart on fire in Samsung’s own market, South Korea. As per a retailer, Samsung’s own Galaxy A8 is outselling the Galaxy S9 despite the Korean company heavily advertising its latest flagship.
After being initially unveiled at MWC 2018, Samsung’s flagship handsets for 2018 — the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ — are now on sale in 70 markets.
