The Samsung Galaxy S9 is now available to pre-order in the United Kingdom, and we'll make sure that you get it for the cheapest price possible if you're grabbing it unlocked and SIM-free. The Galaxy S9 better in every way than last year's model, but the phone is hardly the most exciting Android phone that Samsung is expected to release this year. But what make the new devices worthy 2018 flagship phones are the improvements in the camera, with three important new features. Samsung has also partnered with Disney to bring users animated versions of Mickey, Minnie, and the Pixar Incredibles.
The smartphone highlights a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display working at a resolution of 1440x2960pixel with a pixel density of 570ppi, and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The smartphones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC.
While we do feel that the Galaxy S9 Plus comes out on top, the Galaxy Note 8 is certainly a capable phone that may appeal to those who are looking for a tablet-esque smartphone complete with a stylus and bigger screen. It means the Galaxy S9's camera can take in more light than other smartphones, which is great for low-light environments. The user can switch between f/2.4 and f/1.5 depending on the shooting conditions. Curiously, if you take a closer look, you will notice your own facial features on the avatar, but you can customize it: you can go for a more cartoonish look or change the hairstyle and clothing.
The super slow-mo video captures 960 frames per second. The S9 can automatically detect when there's high-speed motion to record, such as a cork popping off a bottle of champagne.
One of the standout specs is the incredibly wide aperture that measures in at f/1.5, which is the widest aperture on any smartphone to date. The devices would come with wireless charging and a headphone jack.
Selwyn said the company works on a two-year development cycle for its smartphones. You get the Android 8 Oreo experience out of the box and IP68 water + dust resistance as well.
The Galaxy S9 Plus features two 12MP lenses with a first-of-its-kind dual aperture.
The telephoto lens further supports 2x lossless zoom.
The South-Korean tech giant has been more than vocal to showcase the improved camera and the brand new dual-camera setup on the larger variant.
