Hi Huneybees,

I am very excited to share with you about my thoughts on the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ , which were finally unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 25th February 2018 and in Singapore on the following day to invited media!

While critics might be crying foul about the insignificant improvement to the hardware specification compare to Galaxy S8 and S8+ ,  many others like myself  applaused the effort by Samsung to explore ways to harvest the power of technology to reimagine the way we communicate tomorrow with some super cool features like Super Slow-mo and AR Emoji!

Although slow motion features are already available in most smartphone today, Samsung up the playing field with its new "Super Slow-mo" feature that allows user of the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ to capture key action moments and transform them into epic videos at a rate of 960 frames per second.
Imagine making an eight-time Olympic gold-medallist Usain Bolt looks slow at his next sprint, user has the option to either choose between auto and manual mode to capture up to 20 such videos on the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ .

One's Avatar can be created by AR Emoji (a built-in app) from the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+

My personal favourite feature was the AR Emoji! Not only could the user create his or her own avatar from the built-in application (no WiFi required!) on the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ by snapping one's imagine from either the front or rear camera of the smartphone, the user could also customize his or her avatar from a choice of hair do, skin tone and cloths!

While creating one's avatar was cool, it was the ability to do a live presentation using your own avatar, which will mimic your expression while using Samsung native messenger that was really awesome!! With up to 35 quick and easy expression options to choose from, the user could also share his or her avatar in GIF format with friends via popular messenger platform like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

The new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, priced from SGD1198, come in three (3) colours - Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple - and will be available for pre-order online (without contact) on 1st March 2018, 12pm at major consumer electronics & IT stores' websites in Singapore or via the Samsung store online.
