Galaxy S9

Samsung is once again back at the MWC with the Galaxy S-series flagship announcement. The company took the MWC 2018 stage to showcase their latest flagships Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. As expected the company didn't bring a refreshing change in the design language instead they retained the design introduced with Galaxy S8-series last year. However, the company improved the position of the fingerprint scanner, now it is slightly more convenient to use as opposed to the predecessor.

The Galaxy S9-series key selling aspect is the camera with variable aperture. The glass and metal sandwich design is still quite striking. The display aspect ratio remains 18.5:9. Samsung is also amongst those OEMs who yet to follow the notch design trend which Apple introduced with the 10th anniversary iPhone X.

The Galaxy S9 is featuring 5.8-inches display whereas the S8 Plus display is 6.2-inches. Both the devices screen resolution is 1440 x 2960 pixels.
