Samsung has now launched a Sunrise Gold color variant with 128GB internal storage for the Galaxy S9+ and will be priced at Rs 68,900. The device is now available for pre-order via the Samsung online store or from e-commerce portal Flipkart, starting June 20.
The company is also offering a one-time screen replacement along with a Rs 9000 cashback if customers make the purchase using Paytm Mall or an ICICI Bank credit card.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ have the Infinity Display like the 2017 Samsung’s smartphones. They sport dual lens with 12-megapixel front camera and 8-megapixel front-facing camera. S9 and Galaxy S9+ have improved features for Samsung’s smart assistant Bixby, the company said.
Both the smartphones would have speakers that give a surround sound-like experience. The devices would come with wireless charging and a headphone jack. Samsung also launched a feature called AR Emoji, which allows a user to take a selfie and turn it into their own custom emoji. Samsung has also combined with Disney so that users can use Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and The Incredibles as AR Emojis.
Samsung’s AR Emoji feature would directly be competing with Apple’s iPhone X feature called Animoji. Talking about specifications, Samsung’s S9 runs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor. S9 has 4GB of RAM and S9+ has a 6GB of RAM. S9 comes with 64GB of storage and support for microSD cards. Both the devices are dust and water resistant.
One of the striking highlight of the S9 is its new camera system, which comes as a single lens on the S9 and a dual camera on the S9+. The devices also have a Super Slow Motion feature, which moves from 260 frames per second to 960 frames per second.
The S9 has a dual aperture camera. And, the F1.5 wide aperture for dark photos is the widest aperture in a smartphone. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ work with the same Gear VR that launched alongside the Note 8, as well as Google’s Daydream View headset. The brightness has also been boosted. Both phones will have stereo speakers.
