At Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain, Samsung showcased its latest Galaxy flagships, the S9 and S9 Plus. They were the company's answer to the super-innovative iPhone Apple X.
Most of the specifications of the new Android flagships were known to the public long before the Congress. Sales started in March, and it quickly became clear that smartphones were not selling as fast as the company had expected. Is the problem the overpriced, unsuccessful advertising policy, or the lack of new features? Certainly not the last one.
Here are four of the coolest features the new S9 and S9 Plus are getting.
The biggest change in the Galaxy S9 is the 12MP rear camera, which can automatically switch between f / 1.5 and f / 2.4 apertures for high-quality images in all conditions. The camera is equipped with a super fast sensor that can combine up to 12 images into one. It is also capable of shooting video at super slow speed up to 960 fps. The S9 Plus features an f / 2.4 dual lens (the base S9 has a single lens).
Galaxy S9 is a godsend for music lovers. The stereo speakers of both smartphones have a surround sound effect with Dolby Atmos support.
Convenient biometric sensor
The company, unfortunately, was unable to implement such a long-awaited biometric scanner in these models. But she did everything to make using the fingerprint scanner as convenient as possible on the S9. Instead of being placed on the side of the camera, as on the S8, the sensor has moved under the photo module. If S8 users massively complained that they missed the scanner and hit the camera lens, S9 owners did not have this problem.
Samsung's new flagships support three different biometric authentication options - iris, face and fingerprint.
Increased system responsiveness
With more powerful 2.8 GHz processors, smartphones get things done faster and smoother. The improved energy efficiency of the chips has a good effect on autonomy: most users can easily have enough battery for the whole day.
