Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung has just unpacked its flagship Galaxy S9 and S9+ devices at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. The Korean smartphone giant is wasting no time bringing the duo to Malaysia, with pre-orders slated to run from 1-4 March, and general availability from 16 March onwards.

The Galaxy S9 is officially priced at MYR3,299 (64GB storage), while the Galaxy S9+ is priced at MYR3,799, MYR3,999 and MYR4,399 for 64GB, 128GB and 256GB respectively.

For Malaysia, only three colours will be available: Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple.

During the pre-order period, Samsung is offering a Harman Bluetooth speaker worth MYR699 to early birds.

Samsung is also introducing a high value trade-in, trade-up program. Details will be available soon.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ look strikingly similar to last year’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ but offer uprated specs and refinement. It continues to feature the 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Quad HD Infinity Displays and glass-metal bodies.

The killer feature is the variable aperture camera (dual-camera on the S9+) which looks to be the next big thing in smartphone cameras. The variable aperture camera can switch between f/1.5 for better low light performance and depth-of-field shots, or f/2.4 for outdoor photography or bright light.

Samsung also introduces Super Slow-mo mode with the new S9.
