Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 plus have been two of the most highly anticipated Android phones of the year that arrived last winter. Both the smartphones feature a beautiful edge-to-edge design, a redesigned camera, and the fantastic Qualcomm processor.
Read on to find out what you cannot miss out on about the two phones.
At first sight, you might find it difficult to spot the difference between Galaxy S9 and its predecessor, Galaxy S8. It has the same Super AMOLED Infinity Display, with the same Quad HD+ resolution and a 5.8-inches display on the Galaxy S9 and 6.2-inches on the Galaxy S9 Plus. But when you look closely, you can see some subtle differences like the slightly smaller bezels and fingerprint sensor repositioned and made more accessible.
Samsung has been boasting a lot about this year’s flagships’ durability; however, it is still made of glass, so it is a good deal to invest in a durable phone case.
However, DisplayMate recently awarded the Galaxy S9 an “Excellent A+” rating, the highest-ever score on its display tests. This doesn’t exactly suggest that it can’t break, but it has come out so good so far. When compared to S8, it has increased brightness, the near-perfect color accuracy, and a user-adjustable white point.
The Verizon Galaxy S9 and S9 plus are getting a Night Mode.
Samsung is bringing a Night Mode not just in newer phones but even to older phones through software updates. It is bringing a Night Mode to the Verizon variants of Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note 9. Night mode is an amazing feature that allows you to click pictures in low-light. They can be great at brightening up photos a little without adding too much noise or other artifacts.
Disney’s Frozen characters join as AR Emojis.
Samsung is persistent in adding new characters to its roaster. The fun could rapidly wear off without any updates. The latest addition of AR Emojis to the Galaxy S9 are the four main characters from the movie; Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf. Get started with one of the four characters by opening your AR Emoji mode, then click the plus icon on the top-right that will open the Galaxy Apps store, from there you can download the new Frozen pack.
AR Emojis were released in March with only basic customization options like the ability to change hair color, eye color, and clothing. Now with the latest update, users will be able to make more detailed modifications through the new My Emoji Editor function. After you click your photo, you will see an option to fine-tune your AR Emoji’s eyes, nose, cheeks, lips, and more, so as to match your own features more accurately.
Moreover, the face-tracking function has been enhanced in the new update. The update makes it easy to track your features more precisely, and with an improvement in frame rate, your AR Emoji will be able even to mirror your movements in a more natural way.
Samsung’s keeping it fresh and exciting by adding a new color option for the Galaxy S9 and S9 plus. The new color Sunrise Gold was originally unveiled in May. The color is classic and traditional, Bright Gold! The color adds even more layers of class to the Galaxy S9.
