Samsung Galaxy S9 teardown reveals dual aperture tricks and tough repairability


Other handsets and tablets will be upgraded in the summer or later this year.

Despite visual similarities to the Galaxy S8 series, this year's offerings do bring some key features to the table including a repositioned fingerprint sensor, Qualcomm's latest SoC, a new textured frame, refined colors, Android Oreo 8.0 on-board, and more. The first one, a certain Samsung Galaxy J8 popped up at Geekbench early this month with an Exynos 7870 processor and 3GB RAM. We don't know which other devices will receive Lens in Assistant, but there's a good chance we'll see it on LG's top flagship phones, before others. This might come as a surprise to some, given that recent reports have already been the bringer of bad news, suggesting underwhelming pre-sale numbers in several key markets.

YouTuber JerryRigEverything got hold of the latest in smartphone technology from Samsung and put the Galaxy S9 duo through his durability test. Starting off with the scratch test, the AMOLED display of the smartphones resisted scratches till Moh level 6 of hardness, thanks to Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is interesting to note that this update still has the February security patch installed. It is also possible to install the update via Samsung Smart Switch. Owners of the Galaxy A8, Galaxy J3 Prime, Galaxy Xcover 4, Galaxy Tab A8, Galaxy Tab Active 2 and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 will have to wait until "later this year" to see the same software.

Now, after nearly 8 months, Google has finally rolled out the Google Lens feature to the first batch of devices.
