The company is always busy working on new phones.

Oh, and the Galaxy S9 keeps the 3.5mm headphone port.

Perhaps we'll see other major smartphone makers attempt to utilise this technology, but for the time being, it looks like only one phone maker has managed to successfully bring it to the market. The Samsung Galaxy J8 Plus got leaked much earlier before the official reveal and now it's easy to deduce the specifications of the device.

Samsung Electronics has high hopes for its latest smartphone, the Galaxy S9 series. Functionality aside, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are also widely available. If you want to talk about features, just name any, the S9 has it. Samsung also pointed out that the Galaxy S9's OLED display hits a peak brightness of 1,130 nits, making it 10.7 percent brighter than the Galaxy S8. This isn't exactly shocking (a quick spin with AR Emoji makes it clear there isn't iPhone X-like hardware involved), but it's good to have your hunches validated, isn't it? In short, unless you really feel confident in your handiness with a phone fix kit, you should be sending these phones back to Samsung or a reputable fix shop if something bad happens to them.

The camera is one of the major upgrades on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ compared to the previous year's flagships, the S8 and S8+. Also, Samsung's is twice as fast. In Samsung's case, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus show no real changes when it comes to the design, which is something that is going to bother some people.

According to information posted in Samsung Members app, those using the Galaxy A8, Galaxy J3 Prime as well as the Galaxy Xcover 4 will receive Android Oreo somewhere in Q3 2018 and beyond.
