While it is true that Samsung’s most recent flagship device offering -- the Galaxy S9 models -- already come in impressive color options (namely Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Titanium Gray, and funky Lilac Purple), fans of the South Korean smartphone brand can all agree that a new color option will certainly not hurt.
Samsung has recently announced just this week that its current flagship devices -- the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus -- will soon be made available in a couple of additional color options, namely Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold. Right now, the latest additions to the South Korean tech giant’s ever expanding Galaxy S lineup of high end handsets can only be purchased in color options of Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Lilac Purple, and Titanium Gray.
Lately, there has been much excitement brewing over under-screen fingerprint scanners, especially with recent news that Vivo’s newest flagship device offering, the X21, was already beginning its global launch. Vivo knows something about in-display fingerprint sensors -- after all, it had showcased what many consider as the first ever under-screen fingerprint reader on a prototype phone earlier this year during the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held in the city of Las Vegas in Nevada last January.
When Samsung had officially released the first of its flagship device offerings this year -- the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus -- back in March, it had only made 64 gigabyte editions of the models available for sale from wireless carriers in the United States. But now, the number one smartphone vendor in the planet is now expanding the range of storage capacity options for the latest additions to the Galaxy S lineup of high end handsets.
Samsung has officially announced by way of an update on its community web page that it is looking to roll out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for all Galaxy S8 models as well as Galaxy Note units in the next two or three weeks.
It appears that initial sales of Samsung’s newest flagship devices -- the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus -- are either at par or have failed to improve upon the initial sales of last year’s Galaxy flagship, the Galaxy S8 models. If the numbers do not gain upward momentum soon, it could cause various wireless service providers in the United States mobile market to be concerned that the Galaxy S9 phones may not be popular enough sales wise to draw switchers from rival networks.
According to a report recently published by Tech Insights, it turns out that the total cost of procuring the parts and the process of assembling the components for one of Samsung’s flagship device offerings -- the Galaxy S9 Plus -- is estimated at $379 per unit.
