Samsung officially took the wraps off its Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus during an on-stage "Unpacked" event at the Mobile World Congress, which runs today through March 1.

Samsung unveiled its new flagship Galaxy S9 phone Sunday, and I got to take a first look in advance.

With the Galaxy S9 Plus, Samsung sought to massively improve upon their camera.

Beyond their photo- and video-taking capabilities, the S9 and S9 Plus cameras will also let users use images - coupled with Samsung's artificial intelligence Bixby - to search online for products they see in real life, translate foreign languages on the fly, estimate the calories in foods, and virtually try on makeup. The smartphones made headlines earlier this week at their global unveiling at MWC 2018 on Sunday, and despite sporting a similar design to their predecessors, come with several changes under the hood as well as new features such as AR Emoji. While the United States and Chinese market will receive the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 version, units sold in India and other countries would come powered by Samsung's own Exynos 9810 Octa core chip.

The S9 holds a 4GB RAM memory, and the S9+ boasts of a 6GB RAM.

While the Galaxy S9 Plus offers 64GB of storage, which is less compared to the 64GB and 128GB options on the Pixel 2 XL, it does have a MicroSD slot to increase external storage to 400GB. The S9 Plus sports a dual lens setup, with an added telephoto lens, like the Note 8. But if you're shooting in low light conditions, the lens opens to f/1.5, the widest aperture to ever be on a smartphone. This basically will allow the camera to go from f/2.4 to f/1.5, when needed, automatically.

But, if you want the best Samsung has to offer you're going to have to pay big money to own it.

Its slow-motion is now super slow - 960 frames per second - to capture every hilarious millisecond. Connectivity options include Gigabit LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, USB Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0, and, yes, the 3.5mm headphone jack.

In terms of dimensions, the Galaxy S9 measures 147.7×68.7×8.5mm and weighs 163 grams; the Galaxy S9+ measures 158.1×73.8×8.5mm and weighs 189 grams. Unlike the Galaxy S9, the OnePlus 5T does not feature any form of IP certification for water and dust resistance.

The Galaxy S9 features a shatter-resistant Gorilla Glass and a 6.2-inch edge-to-edge display.
