Samsung unveiled its new flagship Galaxy S9 phone Sunday, and I got to take a first look in advance. The S9 is more of an evolution of the S8 design with minor refinements. Other mobile cos have been quick to jump the bandwagon and launch new phones or update their existing phones with AI cameras. Both phones have an identical 8-megapixel autofocus front camera f/1.7 sensor.
The other big chance is the movement of the fingerprint reader from the side of the rear camera to the center of the phone's back - something heavily criticized a year ago. Of course the S9 and S9+ run on the latest mobile processors (that would be Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in the USA and China; and Exynos 9810 for the rest of the world) and the S9+ phone has had its RAM (temporary memory) bumped up to 6GB.
Along with the Galaxy S9, Samsung also debuted the Galaxy S9 Plus at Mobile World Congress today, in Barcelona. We can expect Samsung to start the sale from 15th March 2018, just like in the U.S. But Samsung believes that its enhanced camera capabilities will give it the edge over the iPhone X.
This dual system is a major selling point and it certainly offers a superior photography experience over the standard S9.

The 5.8-inch, 64GB Galaxy S9 will come with 4 GB of RAM and a 3000mAh battery, while the 6.2-inch, 64 GB Galaxy S9 Plus provides 64 GB of RAM and a 3500mAh battery.
If you can't afford to buy the Galaxy S9, there are plenty of ways to spruce up your current device. It is possible to extend the memory up to 400GB using microSD card. The phone comes equipped with variable aperture, so in bright light, the phone will use the f/2.4 aperture and let in less light, while in a darker scenario it will switch to the wider f/1.5 aperture and let in more light. It is worth nothing that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ have reduced heavily in prices which you can check out here using our best price comparison tool.
