How do you improve on something that is great? With Galaxy S9, here’s how. The first thing that you will notice is the Galaxy S9 will feature a similar 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen but now comes with Infinity display, which others also call it as Fullview display.

Immediately you will notice the pixel per inch (ppi) increased a lot. The IP68 certification returns with a bang, along with Gorilla Glass 5 protection with the iris, fingerprint and heart rate sensor. But now there’s the always-on display and an impressive metal body that is set to heighten its look and feel.

Under the hood of the Galaxy S9 will be nothing but the best, with the Snapdragon 845 chipset, latest octa-core Kryo processor, high-end Adreno 630 graphics and 4GB RAM. Expect it to blaze through just about anything that you can throw at it.

Camera-wise, here’s the biggest highlight that Samsung is glorifying. The revolutionary camera that adapts like the human eye. With the Dual Aperture feature, you can now capture stunning pictures in bright daylight and super low light. It can automatically switch between various lighting conditions with ease—making your photos look great whether it's sunny or dark.

As for the storage, Galaxy S9 now has an option for a whopping 256GB of internal storage with a 64 GB variant. You can still easily expand up to a maximum of 400GB via the microSD expansion slot.

Regarding battery, the 3000 mAh battery should be more than capable of supplying enough juice to power up the smartphone for a full day of charge.

Finally, the latest Android Oreo 8.0 is the perfect companion to unleash the great hardware that it possesses.

Conclusion:

It is an annual event that everyone is anticipating, and Samsung Galaxy S9 will once again be up there among other flagships for 2018. There’s so much to look forward to; we have Infinity display, Always-on display, beautiful metal body, high-end hardware, dual aperture camera, latest Oreo operating system and so much more.

Samsung Galaxy S9 had just been unveiled in the recent Mobile World Congress 2018 and is expected to be released in March 2018. It will be available for $719 for the 64GB variant and comes in Lilac Purple, Midnight Black and Coral Blue.
