The successor to Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S9, is official and it is looking good. Let’s start with an introduction to this powerful premium smartphone’s specs and features.
For starters, the Galaxy S9 has a 5.9 inches FullView screen with 18:9 aspect ratio. That means it has very thin bezels and allows the big screen to fit into a significantly smaller body.
It runs Android 8 Oreo, meaning you have nothing to worry about outdated software on your phone. Samsung’s flagship phones have always had good cameras. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is no exception. This time, there is a dual camera setup with two 12 megapixel cameras sitting side by side on the back of the phone.
All the usual goodies are there: the Samsung S9 is powerful, feature-packed, and good looking as well. It is Samsung’s 2018 best, after all.
