Samsung is adding another flagship device into its extensive inventory of smartphones in the form of the Galaxy S9. The phone has been officially announced by Samsung and now we have confirmed details of the device. However, for those who are uninitiated, below is a compilation of key features of the Samsung Galaxy S9 flagship.
Samsung S9 Malaysia Official Release Date and Availability
The phone was released on February 26 during the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain. Based on the announcement, the Galaxy S9's official release date will officially be available in retail stores in Malaysia starting from March 16, 2018. Furthermore, local tech site Soyacincau.com reported that the Galaxy S9 has recently received certification from SIRIM which confirms the S9's availability in Malaysia.
Highlights and Key Features
First off, the new flagship smartphone is similar to its predecessor that you might mistake one for the other at first glance, maintaining its attractive aesthetics with curved edges and a glass back. It is confirmed that the Galaxy S9 will also inherit the IP68 water and dust resistance that was present in its predecessor. Moreover, the fingerprint sensor will be placed under the rear camera, making it easier to access compared to the one on the Galaxy S8. The phone will also have speakers at both ends, hence offering 360° surround sound to users. The unit is also set to be available in four colours – Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Titanium Grey, and Lilac Purple.
As the saying goes, do not fix what is not broken. Samsung is acknowledged by the industry to have the best screen tech, and the legacy continues with the Galaxy S9. The smartphone will sport the Infinity Display that offers more screen in less space. The Super AMOLED end-to-end display is designed to provide immersive image quality and accurate colour representation.
Another feature to look forward to will be its rear camera. Samsung has decided to equip the Galaxy S9 with a singular 12MP dual-aperture sensor as the primary camera. Despite not sporting a dual-camera setup that has been a staple characteristic amongst the newer smartphones today, Samsung claims that the sensor will deliver superior low-light performance. Apart from capturing better low-light photos, the camera will allow users to record slow-motion videos at 960fps, which is a new benchmark for smartphone cameras.
