Samsung Galaxy S9 Design

The Samsung Galaxy S9 features the same full-screen edge-to-edge design to give users a more immersive viewing experience. The screen curves to the edges for a comfortable feel. There was not much of an upgrade as compared to last year’s flagship device because there was no need for one. Samsung’s design has always been cutting-edge since the launch of the Galaxy S6 a few years back.

The smartphone, encased in a glass unibody, is IP68 rated, meaning the device is splash and dust resistant out of the box. No need to worry about getting your S9 wet when you are up and about your adventure.
