    Post Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ Announced at Mobile World Congress

    Samsung has once again kicked off the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona with the big reveal of their new flagships for 2018, the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

    The world's largest smartphone OEM hasn't yet figured out the under-screen fingerprint sensor, but they have at least moved the rear-mounted one to a better position, under the camera assembly rather than beside it. There's some new tech in those camera assemblies as well; both the S9 and S9+ feature a new variable aperture rear camera that can open up to f/1.5 or stop down to f/2.4, plus capture slow-motion video at up to 960 frames per second at 720p.

    Here are the specs for both models:

    Looks like a great phone. My only concern is the screen burnout issues we have been hearing about

    No doubt, it is the best phone. But, when compared to iPhone X, It does lack in camera quality.
