Intro

The Samsung Galaxy S9. It’s finally here – and Samsung claims that they have reimagined the camera. Since it is a brand new generation of flagship smartphone by Samsung, they’ve equipped the new Galaxy S9 with the latest and greatest hardware and software, too. Featuring nifty features like variable aperture and quirky ones like AR emoji, the Galaxy S9 has something for everyone.

Let’s take a deep dive into what the new and groundbreaking benchmarks that the Samsung Galaxy S9 is going to set.

Unboxing

Samsung Galaxy S9

In terms of the packaging design and overall look and feel, it’s no different from the previous generation. It still has the embossed blue “S9” printed on the sleeve which is slid out from the top or bottom to reveal the box.

The box – still the same as the the S8 era – is black and has the name “Samsung” embossed on it. Very minimalist and feels highly premium.

Opening up the box reveals a similar packaging design as the previous generation. The layout and all the included accessories are pretty much the same, too. Except for the included case. The Galaxy Note8 that we reviewed here came with a hard shell case – but the Galaxy S9 came with a smoked TPU case instead.

Speaking of the TPU case, it’s packaged in the little box on the top of the box. Yes, I know – there are many boxes here. Boxes within boxes. It’s elaborate – but tidy.
