Every year, Samsung’s new flagships are highly anticipated. At the start of 2018, the manufacturer will return on the scene with their two new top-range smartphones: the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. Will the S9 impress us in spite of a lack of development in the design? Let’s look at this in more detail.

OK, all top-range smartphones have the same issue: the last device and the competition have raised the bar, and the new model has to raise the bar even further. In terms of hardware, it will be hard to do better than the Pixel 2 and the iPhone X because Google and Apple have an advantage that Samsung doesn’t have: complete control over the hardware as well as the software.Samsung has other tricks up its sleeve. The S8 was revolutionary because of its design, the S9 will be revolutionary because of its features and there’s no doubt that the camera will be at the top of the list. Samsung held off with a dual-camera until the Note 8 so it’s possible that the S9 will continue this trend (which has now been adopted by most other manufacturers). For now, we don’t have any specs but there’s no doubt that Samsung will release all the features that we’re expecting.
