The launch video of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones has leaked a day before they are to be officially unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona.
The three-minute video lets out an array of information about the much-awaited new flagship devices, whose tagline is 'The Phone. Reimagined.'
Here is more on it.
The phone's camera can live-translate text through its built-in translator
Confirming the rumors, the new phone isn't too different from the Galaxy S8 in look and feel, except the location of the fingerprint reader which has shifted to a more sensible central position.
The phone will feature a built-in automatic translator in Samsung's camera app, through which users can live-translate text by pointing the camera at it.
This feature is powered by Google Translate.
The phone can be turned into an Android-powered desktop
The launch video also shows an improved DeX dock that allows users to plug their phones to a display or a TV and turn it into an Android-powered desktop.
The new dock is flat in nature and allows the smartphone to be used as a trackpad.
This great feature can come in handy in situations like showing presentations.
