Update: Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus launched at Rs 57,900 and Rs 64,900 respectively available in 64 GB and 256 GB storage variants. Sales to begin on 16 March 2018.
Samsung at an event held in Delhi is all geared up to launch the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus smartphones.
Announced at the Mobile World Congress 2018 last month, both models feature a design that is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8+.
Design-wise, there are some minor changes, but these are on the back of the devices. The fingerprint reader now sits lower in the center, making it easy to access as compared to the reader on the Note 8 and the S8. The camera setup is now vertically laid out on the S9+ model instead of the horizontal dual camera layout on the Note 8.
Both smartphones incorporate Samsung’s dual-aperture camera that comes with flexibility of two mechanical aperture settings (f/1.5- f/2.4) to click brighter and clearer pictures depending on the lighting conditions. The camera sure is the focus here as S9 also packs in the ability to shoot super slow-motion video at 960 fps.
Pricing is going to be critical. From a recent leak, the devices are said to be priced between Rs 62,500 to Rs 79,000. But let’s just wait till the launch event is done till we can confirm that figure.
Also said to make an appearance is Samsung’s new DeX Pad which gives the S9 desktop computer like capabilities upon plugging the assembly to a monitor and a keyboard.
