Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ offer better camera, slow-mo videos

Nichole VegaMar 02, 2018

Samsung released the latest smartphones from the company in the Samsung Galaxy S series which is the flagship smartphone series from the company and the latest smartphones in the Galaxy S series is the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus. The Galaxy S9 smartphone which is very much the same as the Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch edge to edge display while the Galaxy S9+ will be much larger with a 6.2-inch display. However, on a closer look, the upper and lower bezels, or the infinity display, have been reduced slightly.

The Galaxy S9 is fueled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core SoC (in the United States and Europe), but for in India and other Asia Pacific regions, it will have the Exynos 9810 octa-core SoC variant.

The S9 holds a 4GB RAM memory, and the S9+ boasts of a 6GB RAM. Also, the 256GB version of both the phones will only come in Midnight Black for now. Samsung has hinted that this phone may be launched in India by March, given that pre-bookings are already open. Samsung has finally fixed the positioning of the fingerprint scanner, which is now positioned directly below the camera module. This would end the complaints left-handed users faced with other models. They are also dust- and water-proof. The rear side features a 12 MP camera with optical image stabilization.

During the unveilings, both smartphone makers focused heavily on the camera modules on the two phones. This allows maximum light, capturing crisper colours and details with reduced noise. The SoC though still good enough to get you through most tasks you throw at it, is not as great as the one on Samsung, and as such could turn out to be a big negative for Sirocco. The phones also support super slow-motion (slow-mo) mode and live translation and more.

The most attractive features of the smartphones that Samsung is banking on are AR Emoji and Bixby.

Users can also create new augmented reality emojis to share with friends, generated from a selfie. And Samsung has now taken the lid off what to expect when it comes to covers, cases, wireless chargers, and even a pair of earphones (if you want another to go with what's in your box).

Samsung introduced several enhancements on the Super Speed Dual Pixel camera.

The S9 and S9+ will be available in four colors; Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, Titanium Grey and Coral Blue. You'll need to opt for a plan with 12GB of data or more to get the Netflix subscription, but all current pre-orders should get the phone on March 9 - a week before the March 16 release date.
