With that out of the way, the main USP of the Galaxy S9 especially the Galaxy S9 Plus are those camera's, and Samsung is touting them to be first on a smartphone and class leading.

Samsung recently unveiled its flagship smartphones for the year called Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus comes with a dual camera setup with dual 12-megapixel sensors. Many will agree that the Galaxy S9 is just more of the same, albeit with more powerful internals and a very impressive camera. It can also put make-up on your face and show you links to buy it as well. The device can also expand up to 400GB with the addition of a Micro SD card.

With phones like the Nokia 8, the legendary brand - now under the control of Finnish company HMD Global - is looking to drag itself back to relevance with well-built, uncomplicated, Android-powered phones that combine decent specs at affordable price points, offering something on the next rung down from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy handsets.

When shooting in sunny open-air situations, the aperture switches to f/2.4. Do you think you'd actually use them on a regular basis? The slow-mo videos can also be turned into GIFs.

The camera app can automatically recognize the movements and add slow-motion effects.

On the security front, both the smartphones offer facial recognition along with a Iris scanner.

The price for Galaxy S9 is QR2,999 for 64 GB, QR 3,199 for 128 GB and QR3399 for 256 GB.


The Galaxy S9 features a 5.8-inch QHD+ Curved Super AMOLED 18.5:9 display. Lower F-stop means more light as the opening of the aperture is larger, while a higher F-stop means a smaller opening, hence less light entering the camera. There are rumors that OPPO will also launch foldable phone with dual camera soon. If you're still not convinced, how about the fact that the device supports fast wireless charging, too?

The Galaxy S9 plus runs Android Oreo out-of-the-box, with Samsung's custom UI.

The S9 holds a 4GB RAM memory, and the S9+ boasts of a 6GB RAM.

Pre-order will be open till March 10 and the official launch will be on March 16, 2018.

The South Korean consumer electronics giant launched the new Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus at the MWC 2018 and the pre-orders for the smartphones started earlier this week.

Samsung first introduced the Dual Pixel camera on the Galaxy S7 in 2016, and it was so good that it remained largely unchanged on the Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8.

According to a report by 91Mobiles, The 64GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be priced at ₹62,500 and the 256GB variant at ₹71,000.
