Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Launch: Park Bo Gum Special Appearance

Hey merrygoers!

The much anticipated Galaxy S9 and S9+ are finally here! The launch of Samsung latest flagships was spectacular with the special appearance  of Korean actor and superstar, Park BoGum, that sent the crowd into a frenzy. Through the Galaxy S9 and S9+’s great new features such as Super Slow-mo video recording, the ‘Love in the Moonlight’ prince was on a mission to experience the world in a whole new way with his Malaysian fans.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ now comes with new AR Emoji, Super Slow-mo and Super Low-light features. These enable consumers to discover and re-imagine a whole new level of visual communication, tailored to their own unique voices. To those who believe that a picture paints a thousand words, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ is the way to go.

With the arrival of its latest flagships, Samsung continues to innovate and redefine the limitations of technology, giving Malaysians new ways to experience the world. The flagships are well-recognised globally, having received over 30 awards at the recent Mobile World Congress 2018 including “Best New Connected Device” and “Best Mobile VR or AR”.

Camera Reimagined

Today’s cameras are for more than taking pictures – they are for connecting and communicating.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ cameras are built with these consumers in mind, with a Super Speed Dual Pixel sensor with dedicated processing power and memory to take amazing superior quality shots.

DxOMark, the trusted industry standard for camera and lens image quality measurements, recognises this and given Samsung’s reimagined camera its highest-ever score for combined photo and video rating in a smartphone camera.

Much credit for the S9 and S9+’s high scores should be attributed to their amazing performance under low-light conditions. Similar to the way the iris of a human eye expands and contracts depending on a person’s surroundings, Samsung’s Dual Aperture camera (F1.5 / F2.4) automatically adjusts to its lighting conditions by letting in more light when it is dark through its greater aperture lens (F1.5) or switching to its lower aperture lens (F2.4) under bright light, ensuring that photos taken are crisp and clear.

Apart from that, the popular dual-camera setup is available via the Galaxy S9+ as well, allowing users to continue shooting professional portrait shots with the phone’s ‘Live Focus’ mode.

 Users are also now able to express themselves in brand-new ways, thanks to the S9 and S9+’s AR Emoji and Super Slow-mo features. While Samsung allows users to create an emoji that looks and acts almost exactly like them, the Super Slow-mo function (video recording of up to 960 frames per second) allows users to expand their creativity with utmost fun.

Creating your own emoji is so easy and fun! Express yourselves using lookalike emoji to make communication much more interesting. You just have to capture a selfie of yourself using the front camera and your emoji will be generated automatically. You'll be able to edit how your emoji looks plus there will be 8 stickers premade for you to use.

Furthermore, S9 and S9+ users can now experience the world in a whole new way thanks to a smarter Bixby, integrated into the camera. Bixby is now able to translate foreign languages 1 and currencies instantly by image, provide useful information about your surroundings, and so much more.

Enhanced Entertainment

Smartphones are increasingly becoming our go-to choice for entertainment, which is why Samsung
created a device that offers premium sound experiences with stereo speakers tuned by AKG. The Galaxy S9 and S9+’s audio also support Dolby Atmos, giving the effect of a 360-degree, impressive cinematic sound.

The Infinity Display on the Galaxy S9 and S9+ were given an upgrade as well. Featuring a new, bold, and bright Super AMOLED Infinity Display that looks gorgeous even under direct sunlight, it has received an “Excellent A+” grade by DisplayMate Technologies, the world’s leading evaluator of screens.

A Device that Fits with the Connected Lifestyle

As the first smartphone to support the new SmartThings app, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are the central hub to manage every facet of the connected lifestyle at home, at the office, or on the go. The next-generation Samsung DeX empowers a mobile lifestyle by bringing a large, full-screen experience to the mobile handset.

The redesigned DeX Pad is a new docking system for users to easily connect the Galaxy S9 and S9+ to a larger monitor, keyboard and mouse to expand the mobile experience with enhanced document editing or even full-screen gaming. Users can also transform the Galaxy S9 and S9+ into a Touch Pad with the DeX Pad.

Samsung sets the gold standard for smartphones with IP68 4 water and dust resistance and wireless
charging that goes a step beyond with the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The devices now support expandable
memory of up to 400GB via a Micro SD Card and are equipped with the latest premium application
processors, offering powerful performance and sophisticated image processing.

In addition, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ give users the peace of mind knowing that their phone is protected by Knox 3.1, Samsung’s latest defense-grade security platform. The Galaxy S9 and S9+’s Intelligent Scan feature supports three different biometric authentication options – iris, fingerprint, and facial recognition – so users can choose the way they want to protect their device and applications.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ take health to the next level with an improved optical sensor built directly into the device, providing richer and more accurate information on users’ health status. This sensor allows the devices to keep track of users’ Heart Load Factor, a new measurement of the real-time demand placed on the heart

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be available starting 16 th March 2018 in Malaysia. Offered at a recommended retail price from RM3,299 to RM4,399, it will be available in Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple.  I personally just love the Lilac Purple!
