Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were definitely a step in the right direction from Samsung. Not only did the phones look refined from the hardware point of view, the company did some cool things with software which resulted in the best premium flagship phones on the Android side.
Now, after almost countless leaks and rumors, the company recently announced the successor to S8 and S8 Plus in the form of Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. While the hardare design of the new phone is very similar to the previous flagships, some new features are definitely worth noticing.
The phones will come with the same display only the brightness will be getting a 15% bump. Apart from that, the S9 has 4 GB RAM and S9 Plus will come with 6 GB RAM.
The biggest changes are on the camera front. The S9 Plus now has a dual camera system which will be very similar to the Galaxy Note 8. Apart from that, primary cameras on both phones now have a varabel aperture which is actually first on any phone. The phone can switch between f/1.4 and f/2.4 at any moment required.
One big refinement with the phone is in the fingerprint sensor. It’s still there, but the company has moved it to where it should belong -below the camera- instead of putting it next to the camera like it did last year.
There is no doubt that Galaxy S and S9 Plus are the biggest competitors of the iPhone X, only time will tell how the phones do in the market.
And, both phones still come with a 3.5 mm Audio Jack. Bravo Samsung.
