The Galaxy S9 and S9+ feature AR Emojis, better cameras (which can beat Google Pixel 2's camera as the record claimed before), and AKG-tuned dual speakers for enhanced audio.

The smartphones are available in three colours and at a price of Rs103,000 and Rs114,000. We say so as the smartphone boasts the Infinity display panel with 18.5:9 aspect ratio seen on the flagship models a year ago.

If you live in the U.S. though, there may be some issues being experienced as Samsung Pay is said to be not working.

Dialog Axiata PLC, Sri Lanka's premier connectivity provider and the exclusive partner network for Samsung in Sri Lanka, announced the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus along with pre-order facilities.

With this arrangement, the Galaxy S9 64GB + Galaxy S8 64GB would cost you RM3,299 while the Galaxy S9+ 128GB and Galaxy S8 64GB combo is going for RM3,999. The "Slow-mo" videos can also be turned into GIFs. It's not terribly helpful to use one region's launch to predict when it will appear elsewhere around the globe, but it shows that Samsung is finally confident enough to push an update live - and not take it down immediately.

Samsung lets users create an emoji that looks, sounds and acts like them.

Rounding out the feature sets for both phones is an Intelligent Scan security feature that combines facial recognition and iris scanning, AR Emoji that'll turn you into a custom 3D emoji, and Android 8.0 Oreo running below a custom Samsung Experience 9.0 UI.

So basically, you're paying RM1,200-RM1,300 more to get the "free" Galaxy S8.
