Samsung Galaxy S9 looking to rival the iPhone X camera. The tech giant announcing on Thursday plans to reveal the S9 device on February 25th. CNET Senior Editor Dan Ackerman explains how Samsung's upcoming device might fare against Apple's latest iPhone.

"The camera specs are one of the areas where these companies can really compete and one-up each other," says Ackerman.

According to some leaks of the Samsung Galaxy S9 device it appears to look similar to the previous model explains Ackerman. "From the leaks we saw today it kind of looks like the same phone, maybe a better processor, maybe a better camera. But maybe we've kind of hit a wall with what we can do with this form factor," said Ackerman.
