Pre-bookings for Samsung‘s flagship devices Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ began in India on Monday. The devices were launched at the Mobile World Congress 2018 (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, late on Sunday. Prospective buyers can pre-book the devices from Samsung Shop online.
Pre-booking for the 64GB variant of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ — available in black, blue and purple colours — will be done for an advance payment of Rs 2,000. The 256GB variant of both the devices will be available only in black, industry sources told IANS.
Although prices are yet to be announced, Galaxy S9 may cost around $720 and S9+ nearly $840. In terms of specifications, Galaxy S9 and S9+ are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The S9 houses 4GB RAM whereas the S9+ has 6GB RAM. The S9 comes with 3,000mAh battery while the S9+ houses 3,500mAh battery.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ cameras have a “Super Speed Dual Pixel” sensor with dedicated processing power and memory to take high-quality pictures. 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.
The “Super Slow-mo” video captures 960 frames per second. The “Slow-mo” videos can also be turned into GIFs. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ also offer automatic “Motion Detection”, a feature that detects movement in the frame and automatically begins to record — all users have to do is set up the shot. The devices now support expandable memory of up to 400GB with a Micro-SD Card.
