The new Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are due to officially release on the 16th of March in Australia, however, if you were wanting to get your hands on the new Samsung Galaxy as soon as possible, pre-orders are available through Samsung Australia's website or any mobile phone provider. Pre-ordering can help you jump the queue and get this spectacular new piece of tech in your hot little hands as soon as possible.
So what makes the new Galaxy so revolutionary? Samsung has decided to improve the new Galaxy phone by reimagining the camera with one that adapts like the human eye allowing you to capture stunning pictures in bright daylight as well as super low light with their F1.5 and F2.4 modes. With the super slow-mo feature you can capture everyday moments and make them epic - slow it down, add some music, make some GIFs, have some fun. You can even relive super Slow-Mo moments by setting the video to your lock screen - how cool is that? For the social butterfly, AR Emoji turns your selfie into your own emoji so you can have personalised stickers and videos to liven up your chats.
One of the cooler features for the camera is Live Translation. This handy feature lets you take a photo of things like text in other languages and translates it for you then and there so you know what you're looking at. This feature is great for travelling abroad. The Galaxy S9 also comes with Bixby vision which is like your own little pocket assistant that will tell you what you need to know as soon as you open the camera. The camera also supports live focus, image stabilization, motion detection and Google Photos online storage so you don't have to worry about running out of space for your memories.
Down to the more important stuff such as the performance of the phone. While other phones might have some distortion when listening to videos and music on your phone, the Galaxy S9 is fitted with stereo speakers professionally tuned by AKG giving you a crisp, pure sound that's up to 1.4x more powerful than previous Galaxy models. As far as phone security goes, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are secured to the core with Samsung Knox to protect your sensitive data and Intelligent Scan to give you access through facial recognition, fingerprint, iris scan and more. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are water resistant, feature wireless charging and a microSD card giving you the capability of more storage if you need it as well as connecting your phone to your office through Samsung DeX.
