Yes, unboxing videos are still a thing, and when you get the rare chance to unbox probably the best (and best-looking) phone unveiled so far in 2018 mere days after said unveiling, the unboxing experience becomes a really big thing.

Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S9 and S9+ are only due out in stores around the world in a couple of weeks, going up for pre-order this Friday, but our review unit of the plus-sized, plus-featured variant is already in the hands of Pocketnow Multimedia Manager Jaime Rivera.

That obviously means a lot of exclusive in-depth coverage will follow, but for the time being, let’s all enjoy that warm and fuzzy feeling you get the first time you enter in contact with a spectacular new high-end smartphone.

At first glance, the Galaxy S9+ is big, bad and… black. Of course, you’ll soon be able to purchase it in several other colors apart from “Midnight Black”, including Coral Blue, Lilac Purple, and a region-dependent Titanium Gray.

But this tall, dark and handsome model is perfect if you want to attract a little attention while not standing out too much. It comes with a number of sleek matching accessories, the most notable of which remains a premium pair of AKG-tuned headphones.

All in all, we very much like the presentation of the S9 Plus, and can’t wait to thoroughly review it over the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
