Samsung has officially taken the curtain off its new flagships, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. The new flagships are set to hit the market on 16th March in the US and other major countries. The new flagships focus on improved camera with augmented reality capabilities as well as special focus on Samsung DeX, which turns your Galaxy into a full-fledged PC.
