Specs Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus:
Although most smartphone companies seek to get rid of the thick edges of the screen, Samsung is the lady of that shout. In addition to reducing the edges to a large degree, it invests in the inclusion of a larger screen in a frame with smaller dimensions. Although the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is designed to be an addition to the S8 Plus design, the sleek, integrated, metal-framed screen ensures you will fall in love with the phone at first sight. And let’s not forget that it is a modification to one of the best Android devices of 2017.
The device comes in dimensions 158.1 x 73.8x 8.5 mm and weighs 189 grams, a relatively large device, and difficult to control with one hand. Both front and rear are covered with Gorilla Glass 5 glass with aluminum frame. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back of the phone under the rear cameras, which is the right and most suitable place for it on the side of the samsung galaxy s8 smartphone, and the back side has a pulse sensor. On the left side, a special button to activate the Bixby personal assistant is located under the volume control buttons and the lock button on the other side.
Samsung also retained many user-friendly features, keeping the 3.5mm speaker jack and allowing the addition of microSD memory. It is also waterproof at 1.5 meters depth for half an hour with IP68 protection standard.
Samsung has always been famous for its excellent displays, but the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is better and better. The device has a huge screen measuring 6.2 inches running 90% of the front and a super AMOLED and a length to a width of 18.5: 9. Although it has the same screen resolution as the previous QHD + 2960 × 1440, it is now brighter. The colors are bright, smooth and the view angle is excellent. You can see the screen clearly even in the sun. You can say that it is the best screen to have a smartphone yet, combining the most important features you should have on your screens, such as a curved, futuristic screen, vibrant contrast and high contrast.

The speakerphone next to the USB-C charging port is also more powerful and clear, and the second speaker on the top edge of the screen is designed to direct the sound directly to the user with the same mechanism as the latest iPhone. The speakers also support Dolby Atmos technology that gives you a surround sound that simulates the experience of listening to the 360-degree sound.
Software S9 Plus:
The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus works with the latest operating system from Google Android 8.0 (Oreo), with a lot of improvements to the TouchWiz interface. The phone also supports two applications running at the same time on the screen. The company added some improvements to the Bixby audio plugin. Bixby Vision allows you to translate texts instantly and in real time as soon as you point the camera towards the translated phrase.
The company also improved the means of protection, and now become both face recognition techniques and eye scans are working at the same time, even in bright daylight or if you do not look directly to the gag scanner.

Camera Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus:
The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus rear camera has the most attention and development. Samsung has been providing its new flagship phone with two rear cameras for the first time in its series of S. phones. The 12-megapixel camera is the first camera in the world to simulate the human eye with Dual Aperture technology From switching between the narrow aperture f / 2.4 when shooting in good and normal lighting and the wide f / 1.5 lens in low light to receive the most light. The result is an increase in the amount of light entering the sensor by 28% while reducing image noise by 30% compared to the S8 Plus. Samsung also added a DRAM memory sensor for the camera, which enabled the image to be created from 12 frames rather than 3 frames.
The second camera also has a 12-megapixel camera and a f / 2.4 lens slot and is designed for telephoto optical convergence while preserving image details without dispersion. It is also used to apply the bokeh effect in portrait mode with Live Focus technology, allowing focus on the face or object to be photographed with blurry background and the possibility of adding some effects to the background.
The front camera is the same as the S8 Plus, an 8-megapixel camera and a f / 1.7 lens with autofocus and HDR support. The AR Emoji is similar to the iPhone X that recognizes the face and turns it into a 3D model, That Samsung has not been very successful in this technology and still needs some improvements.
The camera can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second for up to 5 minutes, but it lacks OIS and does not support auto-focus motion tracking, but all of these features are available in 4K shooting modes at 30 frames per second, other modes are less accurate. Samsung also lets you choose between standard video format or HEVC format to reduce video size and save storage space. The camera also allows you to shoot video at very slow motion at 960 frames per second and 720p resolution.
