It’s coming on March 16 – and after some early reviews, it appears Samsung’s latest offering – the Galaxy S9 – has its sights set on the Apple X.
With a lot of serious bells and whistles including a leading-edge camera, intelligent scanning for locking and unlocking, AR avatars mapping the user’s face to create a 3D image, and a jack (lesson learned) for the headphones Samsung has given consumers just about every reason to com back into the fold.
There’s also one more, it’s a premium device – but also substantially cheaper than Apple’s latest offering. And if you still can’t afford it – there’s monthly financing available.
Will the S9 see Samsung return as the go-to provider for smartphones? How will Apple and others like Google react? Or, is the idea of a premium phone costing close to a thousand dollars a unit getting too expensive for limited marketplace?
