The Galaxy S9 Plus is not the latest smartphone from Samsung, but that doesn’t mean it cuts corners in terms of features. Snag a powerful smartphone with a brilliant Infinity display, a lightning-fast processor, and an excellent camera by taking advantage of this sweet deal.

The S9 Plus boasts a 6.2-inch screen that’s perfect for watching videos. For a better audio-visual experience, Samsung has added stereo speakers tuned by AKG that can fill a large room at maximum volume. There’s not much bass, but the audio is rich and clear.

Its Infinity Display hasn’t changed much from the Galaxy S8 Plus, but it’s still a standout feature that allows a more immersive viewing experience. Samsung has leveled up the AMOLED panel on the S9 Plus as well. Its Quad HD+ (2,960 x 1,440) resolution packs 529 pixels into every inch, resulting in sharper picture quality and gorgeous colors. viewing HDR10 content in apps such as Netflix is a binge-watcher’s delight, as the enhanced contrast makes dark shows pop. It’s one of the best screens on a smartphone so far.

Another key highlight of the Galaxy S9 Plus is its “reimagined” camera. Its 12-megapixel variable aperture lens captures stunning photos in both bright and low-light conditions. This smartphone is also equipped with Multi-Frame Noise Reduction, an image-processing technique that takes photos at the same time and compiles them to remove as much noise as possible. It has a second 12-megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom and Live Focus, which is comparable to Apple’s Portrait Mode.
