You can expect the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus to have a stellar camera.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will come with IP68 level water and dust resistance meaning a good half hour underwater should do them no harm.

Whereas according to Clove UK, the Galaxy S9 will retail for £800, however another anonymous source says it will be £740.

Less then a week out from the official announcement at MWC 2018, there has been a Reddit user that has posted a hands-on review of a pre-production model, and today we have more information on the camera.

Storage: 64 GB (UFS 2.1), expandable up to 400 GB via MicroSD card.

On this 25 February, the whole world will be officially going to see the Samsung Galaxy S9 launched in its full glory.
