With the Galaxy S9, Samsung tried to imitate the iPhone X’s Animoji feature by only using the 8MP autofocus camera on the front of the device. The result was AR Emoji which has not received positive reviews. Samsung has not given up trying though. The company is reportedly working with Israeli startup Mantis Vision and camera module firm Namuga to develop a 3D sensing camera solution for the Galaxy S10.
Samsung Phones & Tablets: Specs, Models, News & Reviews
Starting with a (ahem) mock drama set in Samsung’s boardroom, I present my assessment of the brand new Galaxy S9 (and, by extension, the S9+, since most of the hardware and software are identical). It’s perhaps the ultimate do-everything smartphone for the man in the street, and Samsung knows its market – this will sell by the tens of millions. Is it perfect? Not quite, as you’ll see, but it’s darned good and worthy of heaps of praise here.
Back in October of last year, Samsung officially announced the Bixby 2.0 platform, which is a major overhaul of the feature that aims to broaden its availability and give even more features to users.
Earlier this month, Samsung had good news for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners, in that it was delivering the anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update for those handsets in Germany.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 is going to have a lot going for it, with potential customers building their own wishlists for what the upcoming flagship smartphone has to offer.
Samsung is going to announce its newest flagship smartphone on February 25, but the rumor mill is ready to show off the upcoming handset well in advance.
Samsung already said it would announce a new smartphone at Mobile World Congress, and now it has started up the hype machine.
Up to this point, most smartphone manufacturers in some regions have faced pressure by wireless carriers to disable the FM radio chip that’s typically installed in smartphones.
Samsung today unveiled its next-generation Exynos chipset that will power the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+: the Exynos 9810. The octa-core chip is based on Samsung’s second generation 10nm fabrication process and features third-generation of its own custom cores that can reach speeds of up to 2.9GHz.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are a pair of 2018’s highly anticipated devices, with at least one key change that should elevate the design above its predecessors, and clamp down on previous complaints.
