So What is This Samsung Galaxy S9 Thing All About

What's up Community!  Sunday was a great day.  About as good as a Sunday could get without football.  Samsung decided to kick off Mobile World Congress with the introduction of the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+!  If you are like me, I love a good phone coming out party and in the usual fashion, good ol' Sammy did not disappoint.  Sure there were the videos, the presentations, and parties, but I wanted to know what all is under the hood of this new beast.  So, I reached out to our friends at Samsung and they were quick to respond.

Before we get into the particulars, I have to do a shameless plug.  After all, Sprint pays the bills.  My dear company will launch both devices on Friday, March 16 and Pre-order begins THIS Friday, March 2, at www.sprint.com/GS9.  You can view our entire presser Here

 

Now with that out of the way, let's look at what this bad boy has to offer.  For both devices, you get the same items in the box:

When comparing the 2 devices, there are some key differences.  For starters, you the have screen sizes, no spoiler alert there.  5.8-inch screen for the S9 vs the 6.2-inch screen on the S9+.  The battery sizes differ as well.  3000 mAh vs  3500 mAh.  Finally, you have the S9 coming in with 4GB of RAM while the S9+ matches the 6GB RAM of the Note 8.  Everything else is about the same up and down.  Let's have a look:

When we look at the Sprint specifics, we see a lot of promising features.  Sure, there is Calling Plus, but I'm more interested in the potential 5G!5G.JPG

 

There you have it folks!  The hood has been lifted and revealed, but wait!  THERE'S MORE!!  Along with the firepower, come features.  Samsung seemed to really focus on the camera this time.  In fact, the tagline for this device is The Camera. Reimagined.  Now, will it rival the camera of the iPhone 8/X or Pixel XL 2?  Only time will tell. Beyond the camera, other features include AKG speakers, AR Emojis, Dolby Atmos sound, Intelligent Scan and a whole lot more.  Do not take my word for it.  Please allow Samsung to show you with this video

 

 

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ launch on Friday, March 16. Pre-order begins on Friday, March 2, at www.sprint.com/GS9.
