BARCELONA & NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Preorder your Samsung Galaxy S9 on Verizon starting March 2 and experience mobile entertainment like never before on the best streaming network. What’s more? You can save up to $500 when you switch to Verizon and trade in your old phone for a new Galaxy S9*. Available in two sizes to fit your lifestyle, the 5.8” Galaxy S9 and 6.2” Galaxy S9+ feature Samsung’s stunning edge-to-edge Infinity Display**, powerful stereo speakers, a new dual-aperture lens that powers an innovative low-light camera***, Super Slow-mo video capabilities and personalized AR Emoji.

“With the latest-generation Galaxy smartphones, Samsung is changing the way we watch movies, listen to music and interact with friends and family,” said Brian Higgins, vice president, device and consumer product marketing, Verizon. “Pair this Galaxy S9 with the Verizon network and enjoy your favorite videos and share your photos, Snaps and GIFs wherever and whenever you want with no fear of lag. It’s the ultimate streaming experience.”

Truly immersive entertainment.

Samsung changed the game when it introduced the Infinity Display, a clutter-free screen that lets you binge-watch your movies and TV shows with no distracting bezels – just a pure, edge-to-edge viewing experience. The Galaxy S9 provides the perfect entertainment platform with Verizon’s best-in-class streaming network, especially as more and more people turn to their smartphones to relax. 

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ go one step further by adding immersive virtual surround sound that envelopes you as you listen to the latest Justin Timberlake record or watch Stranger Things on Netflix. A dual high-powered amplifier offers a richer sound that’s 40% louder than its predecessor. Want to keep your music to yourself? Plug your headphones into the built-in jack and don’t worry about losing your headphone adapter.

Photos with flair.

One of the biggest innovations to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ is the new dual-aperture camera system that lets you capture incredible photos in low-light situations that you can easily share on your favorite social app on Verizon. For non-camera geeks, aperture refers to the part of the camera that controls how much light hits the sensor. The lower the aperture, the more light the camera absorbs, which means you take sharper photos at night or indoors. This is perfect for photographing your kid’s school play or for candid photos at your best friend’s bachelor party.  

The Galaxy S9+ also includes a new dual-lens camera with optical image stabilization that allows you to take sharp photos, even when you zoom in on the subject. The Galaxy S9 also features Live Focus so you can choose your subject and select the amount of background blur you want, before you take the photo.

Customized for you.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 lets you create an emoji that looks, sounds and acts just like you. AR Emoji analyzes a photo of your face and matches it with more than 100 facial features to create a 3D model that reflects and imitates expressions – like winks and nods – for true personalization. You can even share your emojis across most messaging apps. 

Customize your Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ even further with dozens of new cases available at Verizon from Samsung, Kate Spade, Incipio, tech21 and more. Also, check out the new DeX Pad (available for preorder March 2)****, a docking station for your Galaxy S9/S9+ that gives you a desktop-like experience with the ability to connect an external monitor, mouse and keyboard. Finally, take advantage of the Galaxy S9’s fast-charging with the new Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand (available online Feb. 25; in store March 2).

Unlock with a look.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ isn’t just about fun and entertainment. Under the hood, the smartphones support three different biometric authentication options – iris, fingerprint and facial recognition – so you can choose the best way to protect your device and applications. Samsung also introduced Intelligent Scan, a new verification method that uses a combination of iris scanning and facial recognition technology to quickly and securely unlock the phone in any environment.
