  • Galaxy S8 vs Galaxy S9

We have yet to test the Galaxy S9's camera and its dual-aperture, and we'll report back with our findings. While the entire Google Pixel lineup already sports the Android 8.1 version, your shiny new Galaxy S9 still runs 8.0, but we hope an update to 8.1 is in the cards and may roll out soon. 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. Screen margins are just a touch slimmer at the bottom and top of the phone, and the biggest adjustment is the physical opening and closing of the camera aperture.

Loaded with a 3,000mAh battery with fast charging, wireless fast charging and USB Type-C.

The S9 holds a 4GB RAM memory, and the S9+ boasts of a 6GB RAM.

The Galaxy S9 also has a mechanical aperture that switches between two different aperture modes to adjust how much light enters the camera. It was the first smartphone camera to include dual apertures, with one f/2.4 aperture for wonderfully crisp pictures of well-lit scenes, and a second f/1.5 aperture for shockingly clear low-light photos.

Although Koh assured that the company is working on a new project but he didn't disclose anything about the timeline, that when these smartphones will see the light of the day.

In front, the smartphone appears with an 8-megapixel auto-focus front camera for selfies and video calling. The exact price of the phones in India is yet to be announced, at the India launch event of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus: When will they come to India, what's the price?

If you want to pre-book, you can do it on the Samsung e-store, from today itself, by making a down payment of Rs. 2,000.

It is evident that Foldable Galaxy X will cost higher that existing premium smartphones that Samsung sells.

The Galaxy S9 Plus begins near a cost of $840 in the USA, which is Rs 54,000.
