Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ Specs

Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ Specs

Samsung has not yet revealed when the smartphones will be hit the retail stores in India.

We've put the two phones head to head to answer the former question and help you come to your own conclusions about the latter.

Aside from a beefed-up expandable storage slot, up to 400GB, there's not much new in the guts of the S9 and S9+.

Just minutes to go for the Samsung Unpacked event. You'll find the S8 cheaper these days, dropping as low as $549 during promotions, but it's not as much of a sticker shock for the S9 as we were expecting. The Galaxy S9 measures 147.7mm x 68.7mm x 8.5mm and weighs 163 grams.

Not to be outdone by Apple, the iPhone X and its Animoji, Samsung has launched the Galaxy S9 with a new feature called AR Emoji. The phones will be available in various markets from March 16, possibly in India too.

The Galaxy S9's new AR Emoji feature allows users to create their own realistic or cartoon-like emojis using the device's facial recognition technology.

"These Samsung phones are really built for the way people communicate today and that requires serious SPEED", said John Legere, president and CEO at T-Mobile.

Aside from the video, we also have two different sets of on-hand Galaxy S9 photos that were leaked. The S9 comes with 4GB of RAM while the S9+ comes with 6GB RAM which is a straight increase in 50%.

Bixby, Samsung's digital voice assistant, is also more intelligent.

Another highlight of the Galaxy S9 series are the speakers. They each support Gigabit LTE on compatible networks. Samsung must have heard the feedback loud and clear. And they are tuned by AKG. Samsung has responded by trying to reduce its dependence on its lower-end phones, instead emphasizing the higher-end phones in its lineup.

The release of the Google Pixel 2 may have lit a flame underneath Samsung's camera engineers.

That's because Samsung has mirrored Apple's iPhone range and extended the dual-camera capabilities from the Note 8 into the middle model. It's like animated avatar. Available with Xfinity Internet, Xfinity Mobile customers can choose to pay only for the gigabytes they use, one gigabyte at a time, or select the unlimited data plan - easily switching from "By the Gig" to "Unlimited" at any time and no cost using the Xfinity Mobile app. All S9 models are IP68 certified for resistance to both dust and water.

The most important function of the phone will be the camera. What you can do with it?

The front camera also sees an upgrade.

Update: Samsung is surely very proud of the slow-mo mode in the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+. You can also record videos at 960 frames per second with these phones which, I imagine, will prove to be a bunch of fun to mess with. You can watch the full video below. It also comes with wireless charge support.

For its part, Samsung is already touting trade-in savings of up to $350 for super-early adopters. A fifth of a second of video gets stretched out into six seconds.

Samsung DeX Pad launched alongside Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+. It says that the Galaxy S9 camera has features inspired from human eyes. Even the smaller S9 benefits from variable aperture, which can provide more flexible exposure settings.

Front cameras remain the same at 8 MP with F1.7 aperture. It has a gorgeous screen, and it has a new camera.

"Consumers are expressing themselves more", Suzanne De Silva, Samsung director of product strategy and marketing, said at a media event in NY ahead of the launch. "Originally the phones were created to make calls", he says.
