Samsung Galaxy S9+ Unboxing

Join us for a quick unboxing of Samsung’s new Galaxy S9+ in the du jour Lilac Purple colour. There’s a surprise inclusion in the box, too – something that Chinese smartphone makers have been doing for a few years now, and Samsung has finally jumped on board. Samsung’s Galaxy S9+ has everything you need in the box to get started (hint: everything), and all put together in a nice package. So, enjoy the walkthrough, and we’ll bring you our review real soon.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.


  1. Is the Australian s9s Exynos or s845? Exynos on paper is faster

  2. Glad Samsung is sticking with including a case in the box.

    The clear hard case that came in the box with my Note 8 is still my favourite. Even after trying multiple other cases, I keep going back to the Samsung one.

  3. Well, that’s a nice gesture.. Does the regular S9 get the clear case also? My wife just pre-ordered and she is frantically searching to get a case but this will put her mind at ease..

    • My strong suspicion would be yes, but we can’t 100% confirm – the S9 that Jason is using is neither an Australian version, nor is it a retail version. It didn’t have the case in the box, but it was given to us as a pre release handset and we were asked not to rely upon it as indicative of what would be in the final retail packaging. I’ll ask Samsung Aus today and confirm for you.
