Phone and camera lovers, get ready, as this new smartphone from  technology giant Samsung has all the qualities of the best possible things you can wish for in a new set of smartphones, with its new and exciting feature of AR emoji and Super slow-mo that will surely become a hit in the market.

Along with the release of the newest face of the smartphone is the introduction of new brand ambassadors, Georgina Wilson and Solenn Heusaff, who took center stage during the recent media conference. 

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be officially released in the market on March 16.
Joining the duo was famous photographer BJ Pascual, who completed the team of key endorsers for the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

Samsung redefined the phone game in the country as it completely changed the landscape of communicating, sharing and experiencing the moment with its huge upgrade for the camera, hence the quote—The Camera, reimagined.

Transform your every day life into treasured moments with its breathtaking super slow-motion footages and stunning videos, thanks to the high-performance of the new Galaxy S9 and S9+.

The Camera

Samsung S9 and S9+ are equipped with the Super Speed Dual Pixel 12 megapixels rear camera with autofocus and optical image stability. However, the Galaxy S9+ takes it to a much higher level with an additional of 12MP rear camera. Both units boast, though, of an 8MP front camera. 

Adding to the enhanced camera is the Augmented Reality emoji to further express yourself as you can map out your facial features and use it as an emoji. Finally, a much better slow-mo feature, the Super Slow Mo that can capture up to 960 frames per second—four times slower than standard slow motion—making every video you make much epic and special.

The Performance

The S9 and S9+ house unparalleled performance with the operating power of 4GB and 6GB ram, respectively, and expandable memory up to 400GB—almost as strong as a computer. The phones are also water and dust resistant and can efficiently power up via wireless charging.

It also offers the Iris, face and fingerprint recognition for much better security.
