>> I give you Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.>> Samsung is back in Barcelona at this year's mobile world congress. They skipped last year's show because they had a crisis with their batteries catching fire. I'm Doug reporting form Barcelona, and Samsung has just wrapped up the presentation, very glitzy, very multimedia for its Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
These phones are taking on the iPhone X that was launched last year. But both seem to have perfected some incremental developments on phones that were already pretty amazing. Others like Huawei are skipping mobile phone launches, and that reflects a sense that it's tough to innovate, tough to bring really compelling new models.
Samsung is targeting young tech-savvy, social media-friendly users with augmented reality emojis. And super slo mo for those cat videos and chucking buckets of water over your friends. So I'm gonna try and make my own Emoji now, I have to take a photo, a selfie first. It makes me look angry, I'm trying to smile,
nda looks like me, I'm not sure about the hair.
Nokia is back too with a banana slider phone, the 8110, made famous by Keanu Reeves in the Matrix. But they're also going right to the top of the range with a high-end Android smartphone. The Nokia 8 is priced at $920 and it's taking on Samsung's Galaxy S9 and that Apple iPhone X.
So those smartphone wars are by no means over.
