How do you improve on damn near perfection? That was Samsung’s predicament as it got to work on it’s latest flagship. The Galaxy S8 was the Android king of 2017, even after the Pixels and Huaweis staked their respective claims to the throne. So while the S9 doesn’t bring with it an abundance of changes, there’s more than enough here to ensure that crown remains in House Samsung.

Truth told, most of the internals remain the same, except for an all-new Exynos 9810 processor, which will make an already lightning quick blower even faster. There’s changes to the camera, too. The 12MP sensor has a dual aperture that allows it to switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures.

In practice, this means it can vary the amount of light it use in photos, wherever you are. Throw in a more smudge-proof fingerprint scanner, facial unlock, and the same fabulous 5.8in QHD display you fell in love with last year, and you’ve got the new smartphone to beat.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is available for pre-order right now across the UAE starting at US$840, with the Galaxy S9 Plus starting at $950.

It will be in stores from 16 March in Midnight Black, Titanium Gray and Lilac Purple flavours.
