At the Mobile World Congress, Samsung announced its latest flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S9.
It looks like the company focused more on the camera quality for this phone, probably as a way to try and improve its market share as sales went down in the last quarter of 2017.
Samsung’s president of IT and mobile communications, DJ Koh said the most important function of a phone today was “visual communication”, and that the Galaxy S9 had been designed for the visual and social generation.
