Consumers Get HBO Included with the Latest AT&T Unlimited Plans

AT&T Grows Portfolio of Devices for FirstNet, Giving First Responders Innovative Tools to Connect to the Critical Information They Need, Coming in Late March

Starting March 2, AT&T* consumers and businesses can preorder the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+. You can pick up the new smartphones in our stores on March 16. And, later this March, they will be available to FirstNet users, providing the functionality first responders deserve.

More for Every Moment

Today’s cameras are for more than taking pictures – they’re for connecting and communicating. Consumers want a smartphone camera with state-of-the-art technology to tell their own, unique story.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+’s cameras are built with these consumers in mind, with a Super Speed Dual Pixel sensor with dedicated processing power and memory that can combine up to 12 distinct images into one amazing shot for the highest photo quality possible. The Galaxy S9 and S9+’s camera features include:

  • Super Slow-mo – Make every day moments epic with dynamic, slow-motion video that captures 960 frames per second.
  • Low Light Camera – Good lighting is the secret to any great photo. Samsung’s Dual Aperture automatically adjusts the lighting for crisp and clear photos anytime, anywhere.1
  • AR Emoji – With augmented reality tools, you can create an emoji that looks, sounds and acts just like you.

The Galaxy S9+ can also take your camera game one step further with 3 extra features:

  • Dual Camera – The Dual Optical Image stabilization on both lenses lets you capture crisp photos with less motion blur, even if you’re shooting in the dark or from a distance.
  • Clear Zoom – Capture crisp photos when you zoom in from a distance.
  • Live Focus – Focus on what you want and adjust the amount of background blur in your photo. You can even preview what the image will look like before you snap the picture.

The Galaxy S9 features a 5.8” edge-to-edge Infinity Display and stereo speakers pro-tuned by AKG. For those looking for even more screen, the Galaxy S9+ has a 6.2” display. Pair that with DIRECTV and you’ll enjoy some of the best in entertainment from movies and live-action sports, to made-for-television series and live concerts.2

“When you buy the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ from AT&T, there’s no better way to enjoy DIRECTV than with the edge-to-edge infinity display on the nation’s largest and most reliable network,” said Kevin Petersen, SVP, Device and Network Services Marketing, AT&T.3 “And, on AT&T Unlimited Plus or AT&T Unlimited Choice you can watch, download, game and stay connected – all with HBO included.”4

More for Public Safety

We’re also bringing first responders the tech upgrades they need with FirstNet – the country’s first and only communications platform dedicated to public safety. By the end of March, first responders subscribing to FirstNet will be able to add the Galaxy S9/S9+ to the list of tools they can use to safely and effectively respond to emergencies.

The Galaxy S9/S9+ will let first responders tap into the full FirstNet experience, delivering a reliable, highly secure and always-on connection to the critical information they need. The Galaxy S9/S9+ is also the first Samsung device with built-in Band 14 access, the new frequency band that will be built out for FirstNet.

“First responders need smart, innovative and robust device options to help them carry out their missions. So, we’re excited to add the form and functionality of the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ to our FirstNet device portfolio later this March,” said Chris Sambar, SVP, AT&T – FirstNet. “We promised to work with the device community to help deliver next-generation technologies to public safety. And, we couldn’t be more pleased that Samsung built Band 14 into the Galaxy S9/S9+, helping us keep that commitment while unlocking access to top-of-the-line devices that first responders can use to help achieve their missions. The more innovation we can drive for our first responders, the more we can help them stay safe and save lives.”
