Launched earlier this month, one of the definite highlights of the Galaxy S9 duo is that they are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset equivalent Exynos 9810 SoC in India. On the Galaxy S9, that chipset is accompanied with 4GB of RAM, whereas on the Galaxy S9+ it is equipped with 6GB of RAM. Both models support storage expansion via microSD card.

One prominent difference between the two Galaxy S9s is the screen size. The Galaxy S9 features a 5.8-inch quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, while the Galaxy S9+ packs a 6.2-inch quad HD+ Super AMOLED display. The smartphones continue the edge-to-edge display trend with 18:9 aspect ratio.

Another difference is seen in terms of the optics. The Galaxy S9 features a 12-megapixel dual pixel sensor. The Galaxy S9+, on the other hand, is equipped with dual 12-megapixel sensors. Up front, there’s an 8-megapixel sensor.

Also a differentiating factor between the two is the battery capacity. The Galaxy S9 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery, while the Galaxy S9+ is backed by a 3,500mAh battery. Both smartphones run Android Oreo out-of-the-box, and are equipped with rear fingerprint sensors.
