Samsung this week unveiled the next-gen Galaxy S9, and the version number isn’t its only distinction from Apple.As expected, the new flagship smartphone comes with a headphone jack—a unique feature these days.Many manufacturers, including Cupertino, Google, and Huawei, have opted out of including the feature. Others, like Samsung, are continuing the 3.5mm tradition.As someone who is still new to the wireless audio game (Bluetooth earbuds were a requirement for my iPhone X), I can understand why some companies remain attached to the built-in connector.They’re reliable. They don’t require additional hardware. They allow you to keep calls quiet while charging your battery.It’s a wonder anyone chose to remove them in the first place.So stay smug, Galaxy S9 owners, and never forget that you’re only ever one stab away from your favorite playlist, regular video chats, and endless hours of YouTube.AR Emoji is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s Animoji (via Samsung)“The way we use our smartphone has changed as communication and self-expression has evolved,” DJ Koh, president and head of Samsung’s IT and mobile communications division, said in a statement.Samsung introduced the handset at Sunday’s pre-Mobile World Congress Galaxy Unpacked event, where members of the press were invited to test out the S9’s “innovative features” and lean more about new camera functions and fresh design elements.Such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset for 25 percent faster processing speeds, the Android 8 Oreo operating system, and an improved Bixby AI system. The latest Galaxy also comes with louder surround-sound speakers, a mechanically adjustable camera aperture, and AR Emoji (above)—Samsung’s rendition of Apple’s Animoji.“Not only do the Galaxy S9 and S9+ enable consumers to shoot great photos and videos anywhere, it’s a smartphone that’s designed to help them connect to others and express themselves in a way that’s unique and personal to them,” Koh said.The Galaxy S9 and S9+ support three different biometric authentication options: iris, fingerprint, and facial recognition (via Samsung)Traditionalists, meanwhile, will be glad to know it has the same 4GB of RAM, 3,000mAh battery, USB-C port, and 5.8-inch Curved Super AMOLED display as its predecessor.Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S9 ($720) and Galaxy S9+ ($840) begin March 2; the devices are set to hit shelves on March 16.Unfortunately, there is no in-screen fingerprint scanner.Despite years of rumors that Apple or Samsung would be first to integrate the technology, Chinese brand Vivo recently beat them to the punch with its X20 Plus UD handset.For more MWC coverage visit our sister site PC Mag.
