Samsung S9 Pros: Larger screen-to-body ratio, newer and faster chipset with better GPU, better camera technology
Samsung S8 Pros: Pretty much has the same specs, much more affordable

Our verdict on this is, if you have a perfectly functional Samsung Galaxy S8 then you don't have to upgrade just yet. They share pretty much the same specs still. However, we can expect the S9 to get better over time through software updates that can potentially add some more features that would set it apart from the S8. We expected the upgrade with processor and GPU. The biggest change is the main camera with the active aperture change that you can do from f/2.4 up to f/1.5.

What do you guys think?
