Nokia reboot continues with five new phones at MWC 2018

Potential buyers can pre-book the highly acclaimed phones via Samsung's online and offline channels.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are now official because the company launched the two new phones in Barcelona, ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. There are tons of changes in the new models, including improved cameras, Bixby Vision, Augmented Reality Emojis, and Face Recognition.

Since both the flagship phones pack impressive features, here is a detailed comparison between the two to help users make an informed choice before buying any one of them.

Evangelist Billy Graham to lie in honor at US Capitol next week
He will lie in repose Monday and Tuesday at the Graham Family Homeplace at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina. A private funeral will be held Friday, March 2 under a tent outside the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte.

THE SAMSUNG Galaxy S9 was announced on February 25 and has already received rave reviews ahead of its release on March 15.

The launched dates for India still remain a mystery. Samsung Galaxy S9 starts at $720 (or approx Rs 46,500) in the USA, while the Galaxy S9+ starts at a price of $840 (or approx Rs 54,000 approx). Those who are interested in the Galaxy S9 and S9+ can pre-book the phones by paying Rs 2000 from the company's own site. The Galaxy S9 takes a picture of you, and then allows you to create an AR Emoji from it. The booking amount is the same (₹2000) in this method as well. In terms of storage, the Galaxy Note 8 also falls behind with only 64GB with the Galaxy S9 Plus having options ranging from 64GB to 256GB. And for the pre-order period we're not expecting too many retailers to shave any pennies off that price point.

The Galaxy S9 will come with 5.8-inch display, 4GB RAM, and internal memory options of 64GB, 128GB and 256 GB along with a external memory slot that can support a capacity of up to 400GB. So while it's nice to have 6GB of RAM, that shouldn't be the reason why you grab the Galaxy S9 Plus over the Galaxy S9. The Galaxy S9 duo is powered by a 10nm 64-bit octa-core SoC, which varies as per region. I never record slow motion video, and I do wonder how many people will make use of it. Sony included something similar in the Xperia XZ2, so it's probably due to the new Snapdragon 845 chipset from Qualcomm, meaning that we'll see it in more handsets this year. In India, the Exynos 9810 SoC variant will be launched. The camera on the S9 and S9 Plus feature a dual-aperture (f/1.5 + f/2.6) camera system which is certainly the first time for any smartphone. Samsung has finally fixed the positioning of the fingerprint scanner, which is now positioned directly below the camera module.
