Tech Tools: Samsung Galaxy S9

Flagship handset features improved camera and slimmer bezels

a
 

It’s Mobile World Congress week, which means Samsung has unveiled its latest flagship handset. Don’t be surprised if you can’t immediately identify this as the Galaxy S9; it looks remarkably similar to the S8. However, what you do get is a better camera – think slow-motion effects, AI that translates foreign languages through the lens, and improved low-light images – and stereo speakers that support Dolby Atmos.

Samsung has also slimmed down the bezels even more on the display. There are also AR emojis, which is sort of an answer to the Animoji craze that hit following the iPhone X’s launch. The usual Samsung staples are still in effect - the phone is waterproof and dustproof, and supports wireless charging. Plus you can expand the storage with a microSD card, so you should never run out of room.
