Korean technology giant Samsung recently released Samsung S9 and Samsung S9+ in the Philippine and Dubai markets. The company proudly presented the cellphone’s camera as its main selling point.

Its camera features a dual aperture which automatically adjusts in low-light and bright-light conditions when taking a photo.

Another feature of the camera is its slow-motion feature when taking videos. With its 960-frame-per-second capturing ability, the phone ensures quality when capturing moments in slow motion.

Moreover, the cell phone also gives its users the ability to create their own self-emojis through augmented reality.

The mobile phone can also provide real-time translation by focusing the camera to signs with foreign language including street signs, restaurant menus, among others.

According to technology website TechRadar, the phone has an improved security system compared to its predecessors. The website even claimed that the models are the “best Android phones out”.

Samsung S9 can be purchased for P45,990 while Samsung S9+ starts at P52,990 and will be available on March 16. In Dubai, it is priced from Dh3,099 for the 64GB S9, up to Dh3,899 for the 256GB S9+ model which will be available starting March 16.

Despite being more expensive than other mobile phones, Samsung Philippines Product Marketing Head for IT & Mobile, Ivan Pua, said that buying the phone is worth it.

“If you add all those features like the camera where we have super low light, super slow mo, all than and we even have a new processor, stereo speakers, definitely the price justifies it,” Pua said.

Here’s a review of the Samsung S9 from technology website, The Verge.
