Samsung Galaxy S9+ bags 30 awards at MWC 2018

Samsung Galaxy S9+ is yet to make its to the shelves, but the smartphone has already managed to amass a sizable fan following across the world.

Samsung Electronics took the opportunity at MWC 2018 to show off every aspect of the smartphone and according to the consumer electronics giant, the S9+ has been awarded with the “Best New Connected Device” title at the event. Samsung further said that S9+ has received more than 30 awards at MWC 2018 thanks to its stunning design, advanced camera features, and overall performance.

Although prices are yet to be announced, Galaxy S9 may cost around $720 and Galaxy S9+ nearly $840. In terms of specifications, Galaxy S9 and S9+ are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ cameras have a “Super Speed Dual Pixel” sensor with dedicated processing power and memory to take high-quality pictures. Samsung’s “Dual Aperture” (F1.5/F2.4) — the world’s first such feature in any smartphone — automatically lets in more light when it’s dark and less light when it’s too bright, taking photos that are crisp and clear.

The “Super Slow-mo” video captures 960 frames per second. The “Slow-mo” videos can also be turned into GIFs. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ also offer automatic “Motion Detection”, a feature that detects movement in the frame and automatically begins to record — all users have to do is set up the shot.

The devices now support the expandable memory of up to 400GB with a Micro-SD Card.

“We will continue to showcase the best products and make innovations to provide better experience to our consumers in line with their needs,” Lee Young-hee, Chief Marketing Officer of Samsung Electronics, was quoted as saying by news agency Yonhap.
