Samsung Galaxy S9 Review Roundup: Should You Just Get An S8?


The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus have made their way to India and potential customers can get their hands on the devices starting March 16. Since last one year there are rumours that Samsung is developing an in-screen fingerprint technology for Galaxy Note 9 but now Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities, as reported by AppleInsider, has said that the company will most likely put the feature on hold due to some technical issues.

Coming back to Galaxy Note 9, the smartphone is rumoured to launch around August 2018 and could cost around USD929 that roughly translates to Rs 60,473. Samsung is said to have already tested ultrasonic and optical solutions, but neither have met the company's standards.

Toys R Us preparing for liquidation, may close all USA stores
Upstate New York stores in Amherst, Greece, Glens Falls, Henrietta and Kingston are already set to close or have closed. Toys R Us is preparing to shut down its U.S. operations and liquidate its assets, Bloomberg reports .

While we are still in the process of testing the latest and greatest from Samsung, we thought of giving the camera a shot since that is the big new update. Should they spend a fortune for a Galaxy S9 or look for a discounted Galaxy S8 instead?

Kuo also said that Samsung is still facing some problems with putting an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Note 9. It was applied successfully in the Vivo X20 Plus UD.

PUBG's battle royale game is about to get a lot more intense
That's why the company has released a PUBG 2018 roadmap for fans, giving users a glimpse at what to expect from the coming year. This one will be sized 8x8km and will also get onto test servers at an early stage, though no specific date is mentioned.

Samsung makes one of the best smartphone cameras, and the Galaxy S9's camera is sure to take better pictures than it's predecessor, the dual aperture camera intelligently identifies the scene and changes between the f/1.5 and f/2.4 aperture for low light and ultra bright scenes respectively. The Korean company wants the biometric technologies to be fast and secure enough to be used in highly sensitive cases such as governments and military. Apple says Face ID is far more secure than the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

Also, as under-display fingerprint recognition module has a unit price 4-6 times that of capacitive fingerprint recognition module (or higher), we think that once the former module goes into mass production, the contribution to suppliers' sales and profits will be significant.
