But it's not just about what's new. If you're switching away from an iPhone, there are plenty of subtle features that exist on Samsung phones and many other Android devices.
While we are still in the process of testing the latest and greatest from Samsung, we thought of giving the camera a shot since that is the big new update. I loved being able to just glance over at my phone without picking it up to check whether or not I had any new text messages or to see if I should plug in my phone before leaving the office.
Samsung Galaxy S9 comes with a 5,8-inch classic display, 8-core CPU, 4GB of RAM, LTE Cat.18 connectivity, and 64GB or 256GB of internal storage. Samsung took it slow this year, choosing to refine rather than upgrade its Galaxy S flagship smartphone lineup.
The Galaxy Note 9 may be ready with the under-display optical fingerprint sensor or it may not. I wasn't forced to type in a passcode if I didn't want to use facial recognition, and I could use any pair of wired headphones without remembering to bring an adapter with me all the time. Which will obviously require more time. Several experts say that the newly introduced in-screen fingerprint sensors have poor accuracy and durability compared to the traditional ones.
The 3.5mm headphone jack still being around on the Galaxy S9 really surprised me, but in a good way.
As of now, Samsung Turkey has revealed planned release dates of Android Oreo to Galaxy Note 8 and some other premium models previously launched.
Both phones support microSD card of up to 400 GB and can shoot videos in slow-motion at 960 fps. When it comes to shooting in the dark, however, Samsung is the victor. This, according to the company, allows for enhanced low light performance. It's this feature, according to some, which forced Samsung to hastily relegate the S8 lineup's fingerprint sensor to the back; initially, Samsung expected virtual fingerprint sensing to make it on the smartphone, making this decision when Synaptics failed to deliver.
