The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ has launched in Malaysia! Well, thank you for reading this post, that is all; bye-bye! Actually don’t stop reading, just kidding; we are not actually finished.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ is actually finally launched as promised in Mobile World Congress 2018 (MWC 2018) on the 16th March, 2018. Wait a minute, it is not actually the 16th of March today; I hear you say. It is the 15th of March, 2018 today, correct. The devices will be available only tomorrow onward though as announced in MWC 2018. The launch today also means that Malaysia will be one of the first few countries to get the brand new flagship from Samsung.
The brand new champion from the giant Korean outfit replaces the old Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. The latest and greatest from Samsung now also features a dual camera (finally, but also only for the S9+). It is also the most powerful Samsung Galaxy device as of now. All the great features from the S8 makes a comeback here in similar looking frame and body.
It still has that beautiful Infinity Display that is larger than life the S8 and S8+ has, but only improved and better. The S9 and S9+ is brighter and more colour accurate then ever. With the new camera modules, the photos are even more beautiful than before.
The S9 and S9+ also features a new Super Slow-Mo mode. Admittedly this is not the first ever device to come with 960fps slow motion capture mode. But it is the first time Samsung’s flagship gets this feature and it is a big deal.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ features the first time ever variable aperture for their main camera. The camera will adjust to f/1.5 and f/2.4 depending on light conditions. Those, on top of the highest-ever score on DxOMark is an unbeatable combination if you are looking for the perfect camera phone.
Since its announcement in MWC 2018 also the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ has received over 30 awards including “Best New Connected Device”, and “Best Mobile AR and VR”. If you are wondering how this smartphone won the latter award; AR Emoji. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ has a new AR Emoji feature where you can create personalised Emoji based off your own face.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ is available in Malaysia from the 16th March, 2018 onward. The new Korean flagship is available in three colour options – Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple (Galaxy S9+ 256GB only available in Midnight Black). Prices start from MYR3,299 (Galaxy S9 64GB), MYR3,799 (Galaxy S9+ 64GB), MYR3,999 (Galaxy S9+ 128GB), and MYR4,399 (Galaxy S9+ 256GB). For more information of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ we did a coverage of it at MWC 2018, here. We even did a 24 hours impression with it here, and here.
To commemorate the launch of Samsung’s pride and joy they are having a limited-time roadshow promotion in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Queensbay Mall Penang, and Aeon Bandar Dato Onn Johor Bahru.
