Samsung’s flagship phone series is the Galaxy S – released each Spring.
Last year’s model on sale last April had a striking new design though many of the features inside were only gently upgraded from previous models.
Now the Galaxy S9 is here and it’s done the reverse: a largely similar design on the outside that hides significant changes in hidden elements such as the camera.
I’ve been using the S9 and S9+ since they were first announced 12 days ago.
Though the look has been left largely unchanged this remains a handsome assured design.
The screen slopes down the long sides of the handset so that the image stretches right to the edges which are tapered to make the phone fit more easily in the hand.
