Moreover, you can now capture vivid moments with the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro's 8 MP F 2.2 Rear and 5 MP F 2.2 Front Cameras. But the U Pro does a remarkable job of recreating not just the slim bezels and rounded display corners, but also the attractive dual curves of the screen. The phone comes with a 16MP f/1.9 lens augmented by a secondary 8MP f/1.9 lens, and offers Live Focus for selfies - a feature that made its debut previous year with the Galaxy Note 8 (albeit on the rear camera). The first thing that's new here is that we will have a new Titanium Gray variant. Further reports also reveal that the Note 9 might feature a foldable display.

In its invitation for the upcoming S9 launch, Samsung makes it pretty clear the new phones will be boosting improved optics.

The Galaxy S9+ is getting a dual-lens camera, whereas the Galaxy S9 will have with a single-lens shooter, both cameras have a vertical orientation, and they sit just above the fingerprint sensor.

The Australian phones will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chips, and ship with 4GB and 6GB of RAM. The smaller Galaxy S9 will supposedly start at £799 ($1,115), with that price being in line with the Norwegian pricing details of the handset that leaked online earlier today. It's a bit of a mixed bag.

If you're interested in a Samsung phone with a great front camera, the Galaxy A8+ is a great choice. Cameras now support 4K video recording at 60fps, 1080p at 240fps, and 720p at 480fps with the inclusion of a dual aperture feature to better control lighting in shots.

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt relationship is not likely
Also, Entertainment Tonight reporter Nancy O'Dell contended that Aniston, 49, is "friendly" with Pitt, 54, the publication stated. He even negotiated with the paps to make a deal that they would only shoot her once per day and then leave her alone.

We're also hearing the new S9 duo will feature stereo speakers that use the earpiece and a bottom-firing grille similar to Apple's iPhone X. They'll also sport Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung's Experience 9.0 UI on top.

The 2017-series Galaxy Tab S3 was a powerful tablet, and most importantly one of the best feature-rich devices with enough power, and also with the best-in-class display [Hands-on REVIEW] to take on the Apple iPad Pro series.

Also, the selfie shooter will most likely have a few other sensors (FaceID alike) and will have a built-in Animoji support.

At the end of January, the press reported that Samsung had bought the Uhssup brand for a social networking service.

As it stands now, the U Pro is for the very niche group of people who find US$200 phones too cheap and US$500 phones too expensive.
