Samsung Galaxy S9 Price
Some giant tech website’s expected the price of Samsung galaxy s9 is £639 / $725 / AU$1200 based on current projections, as the Galaxy S9 is likely to come in around the same price as its predecessor. Given we’re not expecting massive design changes, we doubt too high a price rise.

Samsung Galaxy S9 New Features
The strings reveal that Intelligent Scan “combines face and iris scanning to improve accuracy and security even in the low or very bright light.” The Below video will likely be included as an explainer when you’re setting up the Intelligent Scan feature.
There are multiple strings that note face unlock, iris unlock, and Intelligent Scan can’t be used at the same time, and that disabling one also disables the other two.
Intelligent Scan looks to be a replacement for entering a password, inputting a PIN, or drawing a pattern, though you will still be required to set up at least one of those as a more reliable alternative. The feature would be able to unlock your phone as soon as the screen turns on, without requiring you to swipe first.
The strings also suggest that you will be able to use Intelligent Scan not just to unlock your phone, but also to verify your identity in apps and sign into websites. Interestingly, none of the strings mentions a fingerprint reader.
3D stickers and Tag shot
Depth-sensing editing will apparently let you add stickers or images to pictures that were taken with dual cameras, and then adjust the depth of the stickers or images. Tag shot lets you take pictures and tag them with the current location and weather information.
Tag shot seems neat, but Samsung includes an important warning:
This camera mode will attach, embed, and store geographical location data and weather information within each picture that you take. Use caution when you send, share, distribute, transmit, or copy these pictures since they contain information about where the picture was taken.
Other strings mention features called Smart stay and Smart rotation. The former already exists in the Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note 8, keeping the screen on while you’re looking at it by using the front camera to detect your face.
