Samsung’s Galaxy S9 will reportedly copy the iPhone X’s signature feature, obviously

Galaxy S9 vs. iPhone X

Every new iPhone comes with at least one signature feature, something no other iPhone has. In many cases, that hardware and/or software feature is not yet available on competing devices. The iPhone X has two such features. While both of them are already available over on Android to some degree, one of them reaches far beyond anything the industry has ever seen before.

But guess what: A new report suggests that Samsung's upcoming new Galaxy S9 could be the first Android flagship phone to copy the iPhone X's best feature. Obviously.

The Galaxy S9 will have an advantage over every other Android phone next year

Galaxy S9 Specs

The Galaxy S8 launched later than Samsung wanted this year, as a direct result of that Galaxy Note 7 recall. However, Samsung’s phone was still the first Android phone to bring to the market a critical key component, one that other rivals lacked.

From the looks of it, Samsung may pull off the same trick with the upcoming Galaxy S9.

This exploding smartphone is why you don’t use sketchy unofficial batteries

Samsung Explosion

One of the biggest tech stories of last year, and one which Samsung would just as soon like to forget about, involved the now-discontinued Galaxy Note 7. Shortly after the Note 7 went on sale, reports that the device was prone to spontaneously catching fire, and in some instances exploding, began to sprout up all across the globe. Eventually, Samsung was forced to discontinue the Note 7, resulting in an arguably unprecedented tech PR crisis that, by some estimates, cost the company well over $3 billion in revenue.

Samsung has since recovered from the Note 7 saga, but alas, stories of Samsung smartphones exploding just can't seem to stay out of the news. Recently, a video captured a Galaxy S Duos exploding while nestled in a man's front pocket. Out of nowhere, the phone begins emiting sparks before completely catching on fire. Before long, the man removed his shirt and the fire was put out.

The Galaxy S8 seems to be struggling with a very basic feature

Galaxy S8 Text Messages

Sending and receiving text messages is one of the most basic things you can do on a mobile phone. You don’t need an iPhone or Android device for that, but the instant messaging experience is better on smartphones, where you have various alternatives for texting with your family and friends.

That’s why it’s somewhat strange to hear that the Galaxy S8 suffers from an unexpected text messaging issue.
