  • Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus launched: Price, specifications and features

We don't want to draw a conclusion at this time since the Galaxy S9 demo unit we tried them on wasn't quite a final product, but they did appear to lack the precision of Apple's Animoji when it comes to tracking face expressions.

Samsung's new flagship Galaxy S9 smartphone looks similar to last year's S8, although it is now available in Lilac Purple. Also, there are many features and improvements in terms of the camera on the Galaxy S9 like Slow Motion mode up to 960 fps and others like Portrait mode as well.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ run on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor made using 10nm process. In the USA and other select markets, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, with four cores clocked at 2.8GHz and four cores clocked at 1.7GHz. Weighing in at 163 gm, the newly released Galaxy S9 is 11 gm heavier than the Galaxy S7, and nearly 33 gm heavier than the Galaxy S4 from 2013. This also includes dual-aperture for improved photography in low-light conditions.

"The result is photos with far less noise than anything we've seen on a smartphone, " he wrote. Both are dust and water resistant thanks to the IP68 certification, have fast charging and fast wireless charging, and feature 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries respectively.




Although Koh assured that the company is working on a new project but he didn't disclose anything about the timeline, that when these smartphones will see the light of the day.

Galaxy S9 carries fingerprint sensor, an iris scanner, and an upper-level facial recognition technology. Samsung has integrated bezel-less display on both the devices, which helps you to experience stunning visuals.

The latest Galaxy S9 Plus arrives with a 6.2-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display running at a resolution of 1440x2960pixels, and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The OnePlus 5T is offered in two versions - a 64GB version with 6GB of RAM and a 128GB version with 8GB of RAM. You'll recall that both variants of the Galaxy S8 only had a single camera, and the Note8 was the first to debut a dual-lens setup. What's more interesting is that the S8+ packs cameras that put a lot of current flagships to shame, and can even record 4K video.

Another way in which the Galaxy S9 Plus stands out from the Galaxy Note 8 is battery life, with the S9 Plus having a 3500 mAh capacity while the Note 8 only features 3300.
