Samsung halts the Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and S8+


New leaked benchmarks for the Galaxy S9 with the Exynos 9810 processor show that Samsung's newest SoC is a performance beast.

The much-awaited unveiling of the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus is only a few days away.

It's not uncommon for accessories like cases and covers to be made available for purchase by online retailers even before the device has been announced.

In addition, another report that was leaked just a day ago suggests that Samsung may be working on an enhanced iris scanner for the Galaxy S9 to take on the iPhone X's Face ID feature. The third one, improved low-light camera features.

Stay tuned to EFTM, we'll be on the ground in Spain with all the news.

"That's £50 cheaper than the only other S9 price information we've been given to date, which claimed that you should expect to pay "£100 more than the S8 cost at launch" and would have resulted in a price of around £789.

This is far more encouraging if you're intending to snap up a Galaxy S9 deal as soon as possible, but still signals a 7% increase from last year's Galaxy S8 - which launched at £689 - and nearly 25% higher than the Galaxy S7's £569 price 24 months ago. Suddenly the skydiver slows down dramatically as the number "9" appears. This gives a clear reference to a slow-motion camera for the Galaxy S9. Samsung has been pushing the low-light performance for the last several years.

Earlier this week, 9to5Google reported that the Galaxy S9 would feature a 3D emoji functionality that will copy your facial expressions and turn them into an emoji character that you can share with your friends. The phone, specifically SM-G9650, has been sighted on the AnTuTu.
