With the better display the overall brightness is increased 15% which simply means you can use it in sunlight even more better. With the infinity display you can have the futuristic experience .

Finger Print sensor
The finger print sensor is re-positioned again as people simply hated its position last year on S8 which can only be addressed using index finger , Now the finger print sensor not only has iproved but has re positioned to bottom of the camera which also makes touching the camera by mistake less often .
The new super slow motion videos
Galaxy S8 offered 720p resolution on just 240 fps slow motioned video but S9 offers 720p resolution on 960 fps slow motioned video . This might not be new features but the automatic slow motion feature is surely above all other smartphones .
