The Galaxy S9 will feature a “reimagined” variable aperture camera, faster chipset, and new color options, but all that jazz won’t come cheap, it seems. Dovetailing with a renowned leakster’s tip that the S9 and S9+ may be the most expensive Galaxy S-line phones ever, comes one unnamed “source in the UK mobile phone deals industry,” who informs us of the same:
We just dove in the FCC’s Galaxy S9 filings, and, among wireless testing equipment lists and frequency distributions, a few tidbits of info flesh out the S9 a bit more for us end users.

Although it likely won’t end up the disaster of galactic proportions that was the fiery Galaxy Note 7, the new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus already seem to be raising some concerns.
A new video popped up on the interwebs, showing a Galaxy S8 seemingly getting fooled by a high-res picture of the face it’s supposed to scan in real-life. A person uses a Galaxy S8 to try and bypass the face recognition of another Galaxy S8, and after a few tries, he succeeds in unlocking the device and gets past the lock screen. Ouch!
