Here is the official spec sheet for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+

Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ at a special event in Barcelona today. As confirmed by numerous leaks prior to the official announcement, the new devices mostly retain the same design language of its predecessors. The most noticeable design changes are at the back of the devices in the form of a repositioned fingerprint reader and a dual camera exclusive to the Galaxy S9+.

Galaxy S9 and S9+ bring major camera improvements

The Galaxy S9 series focuses mainly on camera improvements along with the usual incremental spec upgrades. The new cameras come equipped with a Super Speed Dual Pixel sensor that can combine up to 12 frames into one high-quality image. The Galaxy S9 series also boasts a dual aperture lens for improved low-light performance, Super Slow-mo video capabilities, and AR-powered Emoji.

The new devices have stereo speakers tuned by AKG and support Dalby Atmos surround sound. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are the first devices to come with the new SmartThings app that was announced at the CES 2018 in January. Samsung’s AI assistant Bixby is also improved with new AR tricks and live translation features.

As expected, the new devices also come with the usual spec upgrades. If you’re interested, you can find the official specifications of the S9 and S9+ in the table below.

S9 64GB
S9+ 128GB + 6BG RAM. I’m sold on the S9+ lol

Official let down! It’s even heavier, fatter and wider than the s8 plus much more expensive

Much more? It is only £50 more than S8.

Plus, the half-milimeter thicker, o.6 mm (!!) wider and only 8 gramms heavier is NOT a difference your hand will feel anyways…

Exactly. I think I will buy S9+ Blue Coral.

It’s wider and thicker, you will tell the difference. It’s like having a you case on it and when you put an actual case on it then it will be even more noticeable

Given that it’s 80% the same component as the s8 then any price over the s8 is much more expensive

So those 20% new components like the all-new camera setup, the stereo speakers and the rest do not worth £50 more than the S8?

£50 more for NEW camera setup and stereo speakers is WORTH.
