As with any flagship that is in the spotlight, it is extremely difficult for the company to keep every aspect under wraps. Some companies manage to do it pretty well, with only some of the features leaking out before launch. Others, like in the case of Samsung and the Galaxy S9, seem to haemorrhage information that leaves little to the imagination before the official launch.
Expected to launch at MWC 2018 next week, three videos have been released onto the Internet revealing all you’ll need to know about the Galaxy S9.
The first video showcases the slow-motion camera expected on the Galaxy S9 and the emphasises is placed on this showing off some extreme sports and high paced video, all shot on the new device. The focus on the camera quality continues as the low-light feature is highlighted in the next video.
Low-light performance is often the weakest point of any camera on a smartphone with arguably the Pixel 2 currently leading the pack. It appears Samsung intends to really challenge the industry leaders with the light-light performance being focused on with the Galaxy S9.
The final video highlights a feature that we could see coming a mile-off since the iPhone X launched with live emojis. When Apple announced the gimmick on stage we could see Samsung replicating something similar in its next generation of devices.
Sure enough, the Galaxy S9 is expected to come with its own annoying animated emoji feature and the video showcases this feature. While many will see it as a gimmick, it does highlight the increased capability at head tracking and facial recognition of the Galaxy S9.
It’s not long to wait until February 25 when the Galaxy S9 will be launched in all its glory and here’s hoping Samsung have at least kept something under wraps that will be of at least some surprise at launch.
