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.

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

Yea the Chinese generally get a special unlocked Snapdragon variant with more RAM. In the case of the S8 anyway.

Their S9 is the same as ours RAM wise. They get a Snapdragon variant due to CDMA Networks (China Telecom) in the country – same as the US.

Yea, reason I say special, is because the bootloader was unlocked on their S8, and they could install TRWP etc..S9 may well be the same. Haven’t read much about it yet. Only just got my S9+ yesterday.

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.

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..

I would assume so too.. Doesn’t really make sense to have it in one but not the other… Thanks for taking the time out to contact Samsung on the matter, cheers!
