Samsung has finally launched their flagship for the year 2018, Samsung Galaxy S9,  the device is much identical to the previous version, there have been some major upgrades in terms of specification in software and overall experience.

We have already covered its launch on the blog but in this post, we are going to talk about the best features that you can find on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the S 9+.

The Reimagined Camera

When Samsung started teasing the launch of Samsung Galaxy S9 all of their campaigns were focused on the camera, This is the biggest change in the smartphone in the recent past Samsung Galaxy comes with a completely if I imagined a camera with variable aperture lens for the primary camera.

S9 comes with a 12 MP camera that can talk between F/1.5 and F/ 2.4 aperture letting you take excellent shots in both lowlights as well as in lit Conditions.

The company has differentiated the larger variant of S9,  the S9 Plus, with both having 12 MP camera, One with dual aperture and the other with F/ 2.4 aperture camera.

A truly multitasking device

he Android Nougat came with split screen functionality last year, but Samsung has been putting the multi-window feature on their Smartphones from last few years, and Samsung Galaxy S9 is their first device where they have taken the multitasking to a whole new level

Users will be able to draw a window on the top of another app just like we do in on computers. They actually went ahead and should a demo,  where they showed the user watching a movie and Message for the top of the movie and then continue with it.

Convert your smartphone into a PC with Samsung Dex

Samsung Dex is the docking station which can convert the Samsung Galaxy S9 or the S9+ into PC by connecting it to a large display, this is something which was launched last year with Samsung Galaxy S8.

But this year, Samsung rethought its docking station and now lets users use the smartphone as a trackpad as well as a keyboard so that you don’t have to worry about carrying a mouse or keyboard, all you need is large display to connect with.

This can be extremely helpful in giving presentations without having to carry your laptop,  I can see this feature being used by me for editing videos on the go, but we will have to see how exactly does it interact with Android apps available in the Play Store.

Bixby Live Translations

Samsung has been pushing the Bixby Assistant too much lately, with having a dedicated button on the Samsung Galaxy S8, to kind of graduating the Bixby Assistant to do more with the Galaxy S9.  

It can now do live translations,  it can automatically recognize foreign text and translate into a language of your choice in real time.  Now, this might seem similar to the Google Translate,  but the AR capability is of the Samsung Galaxy S9 camera let you do more than just like translation,

It can give out nutrition information of a particular food item when you point your camera towards it,  now all this might  look a gimmick,  but Samsung is always known for packing in features like this into their flagship.
