Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ will be Launching in India on March 6

Samsung will launch the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ in India on March 6, Earlier this week Samsung has launched the Galaxy S series phone in the Mobile World Congress at Barcelona on Sunday.

Samsung has started sending media invites for the launch of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ in India on March 6. The event will be held in New Delhi at 11:30 am IST.

Samsung is as of now Started taking pre-orders for the new high-end smartphones in India. The individuals who are interested in the Galaxy S9 and S9+ can pre-book the phone by paying Rs 2000 from the company own site. Samsung started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S9 lineup in numerous parts of the world, including the US, post the dispatch of the gadgets on Sunday. The company will begin offering the device from March 16. Samsung Galaxy S9 begins at $720 (or approx Rs 46,500) in the US, while the Galaxy S9+ begins at a cost of $840 (or approx Rs 54,000 approx). We can expect the Galaxy S9 lineup to cost more in India.

Flipkart has been teasing the phone on its website for some time now, despite the fact that Samsung has so far abstained from launching its flagship Galaxy S series devices through a selected channel which implies both the devices would be made available by means of other online stations too. Both the devices are at present accessible for pre-booking in India by means of the Samsung’s online store.

Samsung Galaxy S9 sports a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display, while the Galaxy S9+ has a bigger 6.2-inch display. The phones don’t look too different from the Galaxy S8 lineup in the design language. The Galaxy S9 is the first smartphone announced with a Snapdragon 845 processor, while the international variant will get the Exynos 9810 chipset.  Samsung Galaxy S9 comes with 4GB RAM with 64GB/128GB/256GB, while Galaxy S9+ features 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB storage capacities. Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones are backed by 3000 mAh and 3500 mAh respectively. The new phones are powered by Android 8.0 Oreo with TouchWiz UI on top.

The highlight of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ is the dual aperture setup on the primary rear camera sensor, which is capable of shooting at f/2.4 when there’s ample light but can switch to f/1.5 when the phone detects low-light conditions. Samsung says this enables the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to capture 28 percent more light compared to the Galaxy S8, adding that a new multi-frame noise reduction feature results in up to 30 percent less noise compared to the previous flagship.


Another headline feature of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ camera is the super slow-motion camera that works similar to what we’ve seen on Sony’s recent flagships. The phones are capable of recording 960 frames per second, which means 0.2 seconds of footage is stretched out to 6 seconds when you are playing it back. You can export this footage as a GIF or use it as an animated wallpaper on the phone.

Samsung is also introducing AR Emoji, its answer to Apple’s Animoji with a few key changes. Unlike Animoji, which maps your facial expressions onto regular emojis, Samsung’s AR Emoji is meant to be a virtual avatar of sorts that lets you click a 3D picture of yourself and turn it into customized emoji. You get 18 different expressions/ emojis that can then be used via the keyboard app on the Galaxy S9/ Galaxy S9+ in any app and be shared with other users irrespective of the phone they are using.

The final camera-related improvement on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ is the introduction of Bixby Vision in the camera app that will now offer live translation features, the ability to recognise the buildings and other places in a frame, and even look at the food in your frame and provide information like the amount of calories in the item, a feature that will be available only in select regions.

Another upgrade is the presence of dual speakers on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ (tuned by AKG Acoustics) with one downwards firing speaker, and the earpiece doubling up as the other channel. This setup, Samsung says, results in the sound that’s 1.4 times louder than the Galaxy S8. All this is backed by Dolby Atmos for surround sound, with a toggle in Quick Settings enabling this enhancement for any kind of audio content, according to Samsung.

In spite of the fact that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ look practically indistinguishable to their predecessors, they do pack some imperative changes. Ostensibly the most important one is the choice to move the unique finger impression scanner from the side of back camera sensor – a choice that caused a lot of issues while utilizing the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ – to underneath the camera module, which fixes what was presumably our greatest protest with the past age Samsung leaders.

The Galaxy S9 and S9 plus are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in the United States and other selected markets, while in other regions (including India), it’ll be powered by the Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC. The phones will be available in 64/ 128/ 256GB storage choices with support for up to 400GB microSD cards. You will get the Android 8 oreo operating system out of the box and IP68 water + dust resistance also. Connectivity options include Gigabit LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, USB Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0, and, yes, the 3.5mm earphone jack. both phones have a standardized 8-megapixel autofocus front camera f/1.7 sensor.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 features a 5.8-inch QHD+ Curved Super AMOLED 18.5:9 display, 4GB of RAM, a 3000mAh battery, and a SuperSpeed Dual Pixel 12-megapixel autofocus f/1.5-f/2.4 sensor with OIS. It measures 147.7×68.7×8.5mm and weighs 163 grams.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ packs a 6.2-inch QHD+ Curved Super AMOLED 18.5:9 display, 6GB of RAM, a 3500mAh battery, a dual rear camera setup with dual OIS, specifically a wide-angle lens with SuperSpeed Dual Pixel 12-megapixel autofocus f/1.5-f/2.4 sensor and a telephoto lens with 12-megapixel autofocus f/2.4 sensor. It measures 158.1×73.8×8.5mm and weighs 189 grams.
