Samsung Flagships Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ To Launch in India Tomorrow


Ahead of this official launch, Samsung India store had already opened pre-bookings for both - Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ right after the launch event. Finely detailed engineering has built the Parallax Series for Galaxy S9 and S9+ into a slimming dual-layer case, combining robust TPU sleeve and a new and improved reinforced PC frame and shock-absorbing corners.

The S9 still features the Super Speed Dual Pixel camera which is still 12Mp. The company has also added software features such as AREmoji, similar to Apple's Animoji. Moving on to the Galaxy S9 Plus, the 64 GB version (G965FD) is likely to go on sale for Rs 70,000, with the 256 GB variant (G965FH) likely to be priced at Rs 79,000.

Offered at the recommended retail price from RM3,299 to RM4,399, it will be available in Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple. Among all telcos, only Celcom has the full range of products while the other three - Digi, Maxis and U Mobile, are only offering the Galaxy S9 64GB and Galaxy S9+ 128GB. Other categories in which it's scorched the competition include largest native color gamut and highest contrast ratio. In fact, display performance was so good on the S9 the firm was confident in saying the S9's screen is "almost certainly better than your existing smartphone, living room 4K Ultra or HDTV, tablet, laptop, and computer monitor".

Researchers have found that the Galaxy S9 can be fooled by holding up a 2D image of your face in front of the camera.

Samsung has also differentiated between the S9 and the S9 Plus by giving the latter 6GB RAM and the former just 4GB.

You can purchase the Galaxy S9 for $719.99. It has a resolution of 2960 x 1440, while the the iPhone has 2,436 x 1,125 pixels. However, the Galaxy S9 Plus does offer something new, it sports a dual-camera setup while one of the sensor offers variable aperture. To help travelers pick the best devices, we're evaluating the top phones on the market based on the features that matter most. The front camera is 8MP with f/1.7 aperture.

The feature is "surprisingly accurate" on the iPhone X, says Digital Trends, but the feature alone might not be enough to sell the devices.

This won't mean a great deal to most of us, but what it does highlight is Samsung seem to have made what was already an fantastic display even better.

But Cnet argues there are several areas that are unknown with Samsung's phone, such as its battery life and camera quality. Well, a new device has been spotted in a benchmark's database. While last year's model was little more than a charging dock with output ports, the new DeX dock lies flat so you can use your S9 as both a trackpad and a keyboard.
