Not bad. Still be one of the top premium devices out there as always. So, it seems this will be a set up for an amazing Note 9?

Looks quite good ,
better camera ,
better stereo speaker set up ( which has been a long time coming for the galaxy handsets).
Better cameras , brighter display ,
And given the new chipsets should be a bit snapper in performance and better in power consumption .
The updated dex station should be a plus .
It appears to be a decent overall improvement over the S8 vatiants ,and we still have a headphone jack and sd card .
At this early stage it looks like a win to me .

Perhaps the Galaxy X with its foldable screen will be enough change.

Funny, Samsung finally add stereo speakers after fixing everything else people complain about and now people just find another thing - I don't mean you, just been reading previews. They do everything people want and its still not good enough.

The LG V30's camera still outperforms with a high quality wide angle lens. Far more useful feature than any type of improved zoom or slow motion. The V30 still has the best sounding audio with DAC than any other phone. Pro movie making features as well.

Hi Ted,

We will be offering comparisons with other phone cameras soon. The wide-angle lens is nice to have for sure,
but I think most people would prefer a 2x optical zoom and portrait mode.

I do a lot of phone photography and having a screen that produces perfect 100% accurate colors, and the best camera in a phone, this is the upgrade for me! This upgrade to me is much better than a Unibrow and talking poo, so i'll be sticking with Samsung's accurately prices phones and will be upgrading my s7! Can't wait!!

Where exactly are the speakers located? I don't see a front-facing speaker on each end of the screen. Stereo speakers don't really do a whole lot for, well, stereo, if they're both on the same end of the screen...Ideally you'd want something like the front-facing speakers used on the Pixel 2 or the Nexus 6P before it. Further, I want to know if the S9's speakers are going to be blocked or muffled if I set the phone down on a table or carpet or against anything, but I can't find any information on where they actually are and which direction the speakers fire?

This doesn't really show the lower speaker location but it does show how it sounds compared to the S8.

I don't expect them to be amazing as they also water proof, I don't know how good water proof speakers can sound really
