Official Galaxy S9 promo videos tease slow-mo camera, 3D emojis

Samsung Mobile Korea just unleashed three teaser videos for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. They are short (15 seconds each), but contain less than subtle hints about the key features of the upcoming flagships. The first video is all about speed.
