The Samsung Galaxy S9 is quite thick and heavy too which makes it feel more premium when held. The significant change at the back of the device is the fingerprint sensor which was criticized for previously being in an awkward position at the side of the camera, has been relocated to the bottom of the camera module.

Display

The top bezel also appears to be a bit slimmer than before with more conscious effort from Samsung to hide the sensors more. One of the great things about the Samsung Galaxy S8 flagship is its rich vibrant display which is the same except for being a bit smaller at 5.8-inch. There is still the 18.5:9 aspect ratio. To conserve power, the screen runs on a full HD resolution by default which you might decide to change if you want to the maximum 2960 X 1440 pixels (570 PPI). With a curved display on both sides of the screen the Samsung Galaxy S9 offers Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection against scratches and easy damage.

Camera

There is more AI integration into the camera featured on the Samsung Galaxy S9 which is more of a thing in most high-end flagship trying to offer the next milestone capturing experience. Additionally, you have a new 12MP tear camera with the DRAM chip mounted on top. This deliver power directly to the camera, hence, a much quicker processing speed. Another great thing, is the dual aperture technology which switches between a f/1.5 and f/2.4.

This is dependent on the brightness of the environment, it utilizes a smaller aperture when there is much light to give a better picture and then to the bigger one when there’s less light. Also one of the features of the Samsung Galaxy S9 that was showcased at the MWC 2018 event, is the slow motion capturing up to 960fps at 720p.

Unlike the older model, the Samsung Galaxy S9 comes with a better selfie experience by help reducing noise in pictures taken. The smartphone rocks a 8MP sensor for a better wide angle selfies. Another highlight is the Bixby Vision which helps to translate live texts written in a foreign language to your native language.

Hardware and SoC

Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy S9 offers two different options based on your region of course. While let’s say in the USA, there are some carriers that might not work with a certain chipset. To avoid this, the Samsung is rolling out with two different SoCs. For users in USA and China you have an Octa-core Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 845 processor with an Adreno 630 GPU. For the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) there’s an Octa-core Exynos 9810 chipset with a Mali-G72 MP18 GPU.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 features a 4GB RAM which is enough for a smooth performance in my own opinion. You also have a 64GB internal storage space with variants of 128GB and 256GB respectively. The smartphone supports a memory card up to 200GB for more storage space. Samsung Galaxy S9 runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with the Samsung Experience UI formerly referred to as TouchWiz out of the box.

Pricing and Availability

The Samsung Galaxy S9 has announced is available for pre-order but will not be rolling out until March 16 which is just a few weeks away for £739 in the Uk and USA which amounts to 373, 000 Naira in Nigeria. In India it goes for 66964 Inr, in Ghana 4610 Ghc and in Kenya 105282 Ksh.
