Samsung has unveiled its latest high-end smartphone. The Galaxy S9 relies on photography to stand out, with a variable aperture sensor and video slow motion at 960 frames per second.
The South Korean conglomerate Samsung officially presented its brand new high-end smartphone, the Galaxy S9, designed to integrate augmented reality, at the World Mobile Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. Samsung did not attend last year’s event and took advantage of a day where its competitors remained discreet to highlight its new flagship smartphone. The S9 will be equipped with a new type of optics to meet the augmented reality applications made by the Korean company.
The Galaxy S9 confirms the trend which is generalizing among smartphone manufacturers, to onboard screens on almost the entire front of the device. Available from June 20, it can also be converted into a computer, by connecting a number of accessories and will integrate the possibility of being unlocked by password, fingerprint, face recognition or retinal scanner. The camera focuses on photography with a variable aperture sensor and video slow motion at 960 frames per second.
Huawei still in the race
Earlier today, Chinese telecom giant Huawei introduced the latest version of its Matebook X Pro laptop and its new MediaPad M5 tablet. Both devices boast shorter charging times, longer battery life and improved technical capabilities compared to previous versions. They also incorporate simplified interconnectivity for the manufacturer’s various devices: computers, tablets and smartphones.
LG also took advantage of MWC’s standby to introduce an update of its V30S smartphone, which embed artificial intelligence (AI) through the ThinkQ software suite, the main innovation of the device. Like its local competitor Samsung, LG intends to integrate its own IA into all its device, smartphones of course, but also connected TVs and household appliances.
However, no new high-end phone to take over from LG G6, introduced during the last edition of MWC.
