8 things you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S9
Mar 02, 2018, 01:35
With a radical new design that featured the controversial "notch" that divided the Apple community, we saw a new type of phone that did something different and managed to stand apart from other current phones.
One of the main highlights of the Samsung Galaxy S9 duo this year is the improved camera technology. You still get the full glass finish and a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED panel with 2960x1440 pixel resolution on the S9, while S9 Plus gets a bigger 6.2-inch screen.
The S9 holds a 4GB RAM memory, and the S9+ boasts of a 6GB RAM. The S9's battery might last a tiny bit longer, they say - but I keep hoping for a quantum leap. Samsung's dual aperture (F1.5 / F2.4) - the world's first such feature in any smartphone, automatically lets in more light when it's dark and less light when it's too bright, taking photos that are crisp and clear.
This exclusive Samsung Galaxy S9 deal is too good to be true
- Both the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ come with Samsung's custom software built on top of Android Oreo and have features like face unlocking and animated emojis. The biggest change is that the camera aperture now physically opens and closes.
The S9 comes with 3,000mAh battery whereas the S9+ houses 3,500mAh battery.
The Galaxy S9 comes with nifty tricks up its sleeve such as wireless-charging and Samsung's AR emoji, which converts facial expressions into humanoid cartoons that can blink, look around, and smile. This footage can be exported as a GIF or be used as a moving wallpaper on the phone. In India, you can already pre-order them by paying Samsung Rs 2000, which will be adjusted once you buy the S9 or the S9+ after these phones have been formally launched in India. It is interesting to note that this will be the fastest that a Galaxy device has been introduced in the Indian market.
So that is about the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ hardware and features.
This could also see the Indian pricing of the phone being hiked and the phone crossing the Rs 45,000-mark.
But the S9 doesn't tackle many of my bigger wishes for smartphones, such as new tech that can embed the fingerprint reader conveniently inside the front screen. And for anyone who treats smartphone photography as a hobby or form of communication, a few of the S9's improvements may pique interest - though they still need to be tested.
