As announced, Samsung presented the highly anticipated Galaxy S9 and S9 + at the Mobile World Congress 2018, with the UNPACKED event. The recent rumors and leaks, and the video leaked on the web before the presentation have allowed us to know the two devices before the time, but now the South Korean tech giant has unveiled to the world its new top of the range. In this article all the news and features of the Galaxy S9 and S9 +.


The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + have a Super AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18.5: 9, which offers a cinematic vision. The ‘standard’ model has a 5.8 “display (570ppi), while the 6.2” Plus model (529ppi). The South Korean company opted for its new speaker smartphones developed by AKG, integrated with Dolby Atmos, which guarantee a pure surround experience with a powerful and crystalline sound.

Galaxy S9 and S9 + have a beautiful design created to fit comfortably in the hands of users. The camera is integrated evenly into the back, for a smoother surface. The fingerprint sensor is instead positioned ergonomically, to unlock your smartphone with a single and simple gesture.


The Double Focal Opening is extremely versatile and works just like the human eye. It adapts to any type of brightness, from intense to poor, from F 2.4 to F 1.5. Immortalize your evenings with surprisingly bright photos. Thanks to the F1.5 aperture mode and Multiframe Noise Reduction technology, the rear camera lets you take night shots with defined detail and more realistic colors without the need for retouching.

Super Slow Motion

Record at an incredible speed: 960 frames per second, four times faster than the main smartphones! Thanks to the ultra high-speed sensor you can take out the director that is in you by adding the Super Slow Motion function to the video or highlighting a single moment. Also, with the Motion Detection function turned on, the camera will start recording at 960FPS when you want. The Super Slow Motion function supports only HD resolution.

Create super-appealing videos in Super Slow Motion, and share them with your friends. Add music to your video via a selection of pre-loaded songs, or choose a song directly from your playlist. You can also make it into a GIF with three styles of loop playback: reverse, forward or swing.

Optical image stabilization

Capture every little detail, every shadow, every reflection, without blur, thanks to the optical image stabilization (OIS). For images that are always clear, even when in motion.

Live focus on bokeh filters

Your subjects will come to the fore when you use Live focus. Then use the bokeh filters to change the background lights and create different shapes, adding a lively touch to the photo. Get ready to customize your shots making them unique. Live focus with bokeh filters is only available on the Galaxy S9 + rear camera.

Augmented reality

My Emoji

Turn your selfie with My emoji and animate every conversation. Create your avatar and choose the expression you like best. Then share your message with all your friends. Make your way to communicate unique! to hair to clothes, you and your emoji you will look like two drops of water. Show everyone your very personal style, or simply who you would like to be.

Animate your emotions: My emoji talks sings and does everything you want. Record your videos and become a star of animation, then share My emoji with your friends!

Live Translation

Explore the world with your personal portable translator: the camera. With Galaxy S9 and S9 +, you can use Bixby to translate single words or phrases from a variety of languages. Instantly translate menus, directions and much more: just frame them with the camera. The translated text will appear immediately on the screen.

Bixby Vision

Are you looking for a restaurant nearby? How many calories does your snack contain? Just open the camera or an image and … voilà! Bixby Vision will reveal all you need to know.


Smart Scan

Unlock your phone in comfort with Smart Scanning that combines facial recognition with iris scanning. When the face recognition is not enough, the iris scan (and vice versa) comes into play, to verify your identity. In this way, your phone will identify you in a moment even in low light conditions. Unlock the Galaxy S9 or S9 + with a glance, fingerprint or a simple sign.

Resistance to water and dust

Protect contents thanks to resistance to water and dust. Do not be afraid to go out and get wet: Galaxy S9 and S9 + are IP68 certified. Water resistance is based on immersion testing conditions up to 1.5 meters of fresh water, for a maximum of 30 minutes. Rinse off residues / dry the device if wet.

Wireless charging

Just twisted cables when you need to recharge your smartphone. Place it on the wireless charger and power it in peace. And since the charging base supports the smartphone at a convenient angle, you can continue to write or watch streaming videos.

Expandable memory

When you need more storage space, just insert a microSD. Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + have an expandable memory up to 400GB.

Samsung DeX

Bring your office with you wherever you go. Turn your Galaxy S9 or S9 + into a PC by connecting it to the Samsung DeX Pad and the monitor. View photos and files, check emails, surf the net and much more, but full-screen. We recommend using the HDMI cable and the original DeX Pad charger. This product is sold separately.

Availability and prices

The pre-order for the new Galaxy S9 and S9 + is already available. Speaking instead of prices, the new top-of-the-range Samsung will be available for the Italian market respectively to € 899 and € 999. A higher launch price than the previous generation, but widely announced by the most recent leaks.

Galaxy S9 and S9 + will be available in Italy in three colors: Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, and Coral Blue. Doubt instead of the Titanium Gray version, which may not arrive in our country.
