foldable phones right now. So to separate fact from fiction about the much-awaited latest offering from the South Korean mobile moguls, we're bringing you the lowdown on the key features and specifications that the new phones boast.
Galaxy S9 is the dual aperture camera lens, with f-stop between f/1.5 and f/2.4.
The other big chance is the movement of the fingerprint reader from the side of the rear camera to the center of the phone's back - something heavily criticized previous year.
The Galaxy S9 is fueled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core SoC (in the United States and Europe), but for in India and other Asia Pacific regions, it will have the Exynos 9810 octa-core SoC variant.
According to a report by 91Mobiles, The 64GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be priced at ₹62,500 and the 256GB variant at ₹71,000. "Reimagined", it's clear that the company's goal from the get-go was to establish the device as the go-to model for those wanting premium performance when it comes time to take a photo. AR Emoji has been seen as a rival to Apple's Animoji, which is available on the iPhone X. While many accused Samsung of stealing the idea from Apple, however, Samsung mobile head DJ Koh stated that the company didn't copy the feature from Apple. The company has focused a lot on camera and shipped the first phone with a variable aperture camera.
Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 plus are officially proceeding on sale in worldwide markets like the USA, etc on March 16. Unlike the Galaxy S9, the OnePlus 5T does not feature any form of IP certification for water and dust resistance. Notably, not many changes have been made in the Galaxy S9 compared to its predecessor, S8.
A microSD card slot for extra storage expansion up to 400GB is also available. The smartphones come with slow-motion video recording at 960fps.
But while the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus were identical save for size, the Galaxy S9 differentiates itself from the S9 Plus by carrying a single 12-megapixel sensor on the back. The Galaxy S9 will run Android 8 Oreo at launch.
Moving beyond the camera improvements, Samsung introduced what it's calling AR Emoji. The f/1.5 aperture is also the lowest we've ever seen on a smartphone. You can customize the clothes, hair, and glasses and the AR (augmented reality) recognizes up to 18 different expressions.
