As mentioned earlier, each region has its own set of telecommunication standards which require each smartphone to comply with and as these rules sometimes contradict, there is a need for a specific model number and variant for every region. Also, Samsung makes use of two different processors, Exynos and Snapdragon. The performance difference between each is quite minimal so you shouldn’t worry as to which one you get as long as it works on your region’s networks.

We already have a list of all the Galaxy S9 wallpapers and the official ringtones. And now, we also have the entire list of Galaxy S9 stock apps and Galaxy S9 Launcher APK for download. SPre-orders start later this week, but for those who are not going to upgrade can enjoy the wallpapers, ringtones and other Samsung Galaxy S9 downloads on their Android devices.

Interested readers can also view the technical specifications for the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+.
