Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ Release Date, Specs, Features & Price: Tech Giant Introduces New Models With Higher Storage Options
Samsung is beefing up its popular smartphones Galaxy S9 and S9+. The South Korean-based phone manufacturer will be offering souped-up versions of the two Galaxy models specifically for U.S. electronics consumers.
Samsung knows that storage option is a big concern for American consumers. To answer this need, the company is introducing 128GB and 256GB storage options for both its popular Galaxy S9 and S9+ models.
Samsung believes that the bigger storage options will greatly enhance the user experience of Galaxy owners. The bigger memory will allow S9 and S9+ users the freedom to enjoy more content, download more apps and take as many pictures as they want without having to worry too much on running out of storage space.
"Our phones are filled with big files such as uncompressed photos, 4K videos, feature-length movies and more. Samsung now offers Galaxy S9 and S9+ with more on-board storage to give peace of mind to users who want to instantly access their high-capacity files while on the go," Samsung Electronics America SVP Justin Denison explained. "With these new high-capacity models and the flexibility of expandable storage, Galaxy S9 and S9+ owners have a variety of ways to keep their content close."
People are increasingly communicating with each other through pictures and videos clips. The added storage capacity of the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will enable consumers to fully enjoy the phones' state-of-the-art camera which is capable of taking crystal-clear 4K videos, Super Slow-mo videos and even take a picture even in a low light environment. Additional flexibility of managing their photo and video libraries is made possible with the support of external microSD cards which can store up to a massive 400GB of data.
