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.
Samsung’s newest flagship offerings -- the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus -- come with some really cool features, such as Intelligent Scan (which combines facial recognition technology with iris scanning software) and AR Emoji (which allows users to transform their selfies into their own AR enhanced emoji). But some may argue that as cool as these features are, they do not quite reach the levels of the iPhone X’s Face ID tech and Animoji feature (helped immensely by the device’s 3D camera on its front side).
Despite the fact that Samsung’s new flagships -- the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus -- will not hit store shelves everywhere until this Friday (March 16th), apparently the South Korean tech giant is already rolling out the first ever software update for the devices.
Barely a week after they were unveiled, Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 models are now starting to grab honors in terms of camera and display screen quality. According to DxOMark, the Galaxy S9 Plus is now tops in terms of image capturing capabilities.
There is no doubt about it -- some Android fans will already be itching to get their hands on Samsung’s newest flagship devices, the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus phablets. Well, they will not have to wait for long -- the handsets will be made available for preordering starting on March 2nd, and exactly two weeks later on March 16th, the South Korean tech giant’s newest toys will hit store shelves everywhere.
