9 Reasons You Shouldn't Buy or Upgrade to the Galaxy S9 now

Speaking about the findings, Justin Woolridge, Commercial Marketing Manager at Envirofone, said: "When the latest Samsung handset is released, and during the weeks following launch, we see the value of older handsets depreciate dramatically".

The Galaxy S8 received a price cut of RM200 shortly after a month of its sales launch a year ago, while this doesn't happen at retail stores, do expect retailers over at Lazada and 11street to undercut each other by lowering the prices of the Galaxy S9 or offering better free gifts.

According to a new report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Samsung is likely dropping in-glass fingerprint sensors from its next flagship.

Ireland have taken a huge leap towards the title with today's win and will now watch the England v France clash with eagle eyes. But that was a mistake because if you do that in tests you can easily lose control.


Previously we'd heard word that Samsung wants to debut its long rumored in-screen fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy Note 9, but the latest from analysts close to the company suggests the phone won't be ready to feature the tech.

Although Galaxy S8 owners could be wise to hold on to their phones for a while it's worth remembering than some experts are warning that second hand prices for Samsung's current flagship look set to drop as well.

According to Jeff Johnson, the same trending is not only observed at Samsung, the smartphones' market leader but is also applicable to the entire industry as well.

That's because the shift from standard time to daylight saving time officially takes place at 2 a.m. local time Sunday. The first misconception of it all is if is called "Daylight Saving Time" or "Daylight Savings Time".


Though the in-display fingerprint sensors are in the initial stage, Kuo believes that these sensors will be associated with issues such as incompatibility with screen protectors and power consumption.

Maintaining most of the design from the Galaxy S8, the new smartphone features a rear camera with a variable aperture that can automatically or manually switch between F1.5 and F2.4. Just last month, a Samsung patent, accompanied by a report from China, appeared online that showed the company was working on in-display technology. He claims that it is "key for full-screen designs" and that facial recognition - as seen in the iPhone X - can not fully replace fingerprint scanning.

While it seemed in-display fingerprint sensors were the future of smartphone biometrics for a while, Kuo says that Apple's iPhone X has made Android manufacturers more interested in advanced 3D-sensing facial recognition.

For example, if you press down hard enough on ice-I, it will transform into ice-II, which has a rhombohedral structure. But for obvious reasons, it has proven impossible to find a naturally occurring sample of ice VII at the surface.
