The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung S9+, the 2018 flagship S series models, were finally released in stores on the 16th of March worldwide. As a devout Samsung smartphone user I was anticipating something that would simply crush the iPhone X but, the Samsung Galaxy S9 has only proven to be slight upgrade to the Galaxy S8. Here is what Samsung Galaxy fans in Pakistan should expect from the Galaxy S9 smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 looks exactly like the S8, there is simply no change in design. But there are several new additions to the new flag bearer from the tech giant. Among the few upgrades and improvements, the Samsung Galaxy S9 solves the issue with the S8’s facial recognition in low light. The Galaxy S9 arrives also with a revolutionary camera, much better than the iPhone X. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is powered by Samsung’s own deep learning Exynos 9810 processor, and Octa Core marvel, rivaling Apple’s Fusion processor technology.

The great thing is that there are some lovable reviews for the Samsung Galaxy S9. Now the sad thing is that it gets excellent and not DELIGHTFUL reviews like this one on TechRadar where the phone gets 4 out of 5 stars.

Let’s have a look at the availability and price of the Samsung Galaxy S9 in Pakistan. We will then take an in depth look at all new Samsung Galaxy S9 features and its monster specs.

Samsung Galaxy S9 features

The Samsung Galaxy S9 comes with the S8’s design and look but packs a brand new camera, processor, facial recognition tech, and interactive add-ons.

The Revolutionary Camera

After a real time demo I am ready to argue that the Samsung Galaxy S9 brings a truly cutting edge camera. The 12 MPx Dual Camera comes with the same Dual Pixel technology used in the S8 to give you color rich and memorable photos.

Now supported by the dual aperture mode the Galaxy S9 camera adapts to your surrounding exactly like the human eye does, automatically. There is no need to worry just click and capture gorgeous photos with the built in f-stop mode that adapt to light conditions. The new monster processor enhances camera performance using auto image optimization.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 brings super slow motion recording with its cutting edge camera, powered by a brilliant super speed sensor. You can now record images up to 960 frames per second. Be a director and create amazing stories with the breakthrough super slow-mo bursts feature.

The camera also offers 4K ultra HD recording at 120 frames per second, so no matter how fast scenes you are shooting it’s going to be magical. Videos in the dark will also be clearer with very few instances of red eye and pixilation, with the camera adapting to the light automatically.

Augmented Reality Chat Emoji

The Samsung Galaxy S9’s interactive features are also a milestone in communication, partly thanks to its facial recognition tech & artificially intelligent processor. The Galaxy S9 will let you turn your selfie into an Emoji to bring life to your messages. The feature creates an animated version of your face and allows you to style your character.

You can watch the live demo on the official Samsung Galaxy S9 website here.

Exynos 9810 Processor

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will be powered by possibly the fastest Android OS processor in existence. A marvel of Samsung’s engineering the Octa Core processor in an Artificial Intelligence chip. The processor learns from you by monitoring your habits and routines, providing solutions automatically as you go through the day.

Now, not only can the AI processor speed up phone performance by monitoring which apps are used frequently, it also allocates resources to primary tasks. The beast processor coupled with Samsung’s Bixby AI voice assistant is going to make some great changes to the way we interact with our phones.

You will also experience faster internet courtesy of the magnificent Exynos 9810. The processor also excels camera performance, fHD video playback, and enhances the gaming experience with its latest built in GPU.

Live Translations

I was really waiting for smartphone giants to develop and embed this tech into their devices. The Samsung Galaxy S9 brings in its interface a live translation app to instantly translate foreign languages by taking a snap through the camera. This is a simply amazing feature for those who travel around the world. Not only is the translation app excellent for business persons but a top notch feature to use on holidays.

Design

The body design is the same edge to edge infinity display with a 5.8 screen. The best aspect to be honest, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is both slimmer and lighter than the iPhone X. The finger print sensor has been ergonomically modified to be exactly where your finger reaches while holding the phone in one hand.

AKG Harmon Audio Speakers

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will carry AKG Harmon Audio tech for a crystal clear surround experience with both headphones and the stereo speakers. The legendary audio giant’s tech has satisfied my test, being a music fan I am really in love with music playback.

The Galaxy S9 speakers offer 1.4 times more powerful sound than previous S Series phones. The phone also offers Dolby Atmos to give you a three point surround experience immersing you in gaming, music, and movies.

Security

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 phone us designed with the user in mind considering you can use 6 layers on security over the device. There is an Iris scan, finger print scam face scan lock, pattern, password and PIN features.

 

Samsung Galaxy S9 Specs

Since we have discussed a few already it’s time to list the most amazing new specs added to the Samsung Galaxy S9. Here are the ones I love:

  • Simply Gorgeous Infinity Display with 18:5:9 ratio
  • Magnificent new camera
  • Rich and High quality sound with AKG Harmon Audio
  • Faster modem, truly blazing fast
  • Absolute monster Processor
  • Improved security
  • Lighter to carry

Verdict:

While fans were expecting something truly remarkable from Samsung, I don’t think they have been completely let down. The upgrades, the little cosmetic touches, the slight polishing to the overall feel, should be enough to keep Samsung Galaxy fans happy and committed to the brand. As for how big an impact it creates in the market, I am not too sure about it since I feel Samsung has left the field wide open for brands like Xiaomi, Huawei, etc., to come up with something more innovative and  delight the smartphone user-base in Pakistan and all over the world.

As far as brand loyalty goes, Samsung might feel content with the sales but it hasn’t given much to fans to be loyal for.
