Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ duo are confirmed to be launched on the 25th of February as the rumours suggested and will replace the flagship tag from the outselling S8 and S8+. There were rumours that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S9a and S9+ sooner this year and although the launch is just a day before the Mobile World Congress commences, it is apparently being held in the same city of Barcelona. The invited to the media have been sent and the invites gives us an insight to what we should be expecting from the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ duo.
Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+: Expected Features
There were reports that the first batch of the Snapdragon 845 processors had been bought by Samsung for the 2018 Flagships – Galaxy S9 and S9+. We are hoping the duo will be the firs set of phones of 2018 to carry the latest flagship from Qualcomm which will make the performance buttery smooth. However, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will come with an Exynos processor in most markets outside the United States including India. The RAM is expected to be 4GB on the regular S9 while the S9+ may carry 6GB coupled to a 64GB/128GB setup.
The invite that the company sent out for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ also gives a hint on the big changes that will be made to the camera department. It carries the phrase ‘The Camera. Reimagined.’ which means the S9 will likely come with a new camera sensor or maybe a dual camera setup on the back like the Note 8 launched last year.
Other features that Samsung will offer in the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are wireless charging, IP68 water resistance, and the same Super AMOLED screens that we have come to love.
Price and Launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ in India:
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Flagships will be launched/unveiled on the 25th of February in Barcelona and might start shipping to the customers by the 16th of March in the first few countries. The price of these high end smartphones is expected to be in the same price bracket as the previous S8 and S8+ close to 60,000 Rupee mark. We don’t expect Samsung to increase the prices of its flagships like Galaxy S9 and S9+ like other manufacturers each year or go crazy like what Google did with the Pixel 2XL.
