Will Samsung power a USB Hard Drive?

Does anyone know?    I can't find the power output of the phone.
Specifically as import to phone and edit on it (photoshop express  /snapseed / vsco) I want to be able to bacck up on the go.    I know the Galaxy S9 will power a USB-C SSD disk but I can get a lot more storage for my money if it will power a hard disk rather than SSD which would be useful for extended trips with lots of pics / video
