The new S9 devices will also be Samsung's first Galaxy smartphones to come with stereo speakers. Arguably the most important one is the decision to shift the fingerprint scanner from the side of rear camera sensor - a decision that caused plenty of problems while using the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ - to below the camera module, which fixes what was probably our biggest complaint with the previous generation Samsung flagships. The Samsung Galaxy S9 also happens to be IP68 certified water and dust resistant.

Samsung has also launched Apple's Animojis competitor called AR Emoji. Similar to Apple's Animojis, the S9 and S9+ offer AR emojis which allow users to create 3D avatars and use these as part of the keyboard.

The Galaxy S9 is fueled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core SoC (in the U.S. and Europe), but for in India and other Asia Pacific regions, it will have the Exynos 9810 octa-core SoC variant.

Like the Galaxy S9, the wallpapers are minimalist, tasteful, and rather pretty.

A microSD card slot for extra storage expansion up to 400GB is also available. But if you're shooting in low light conditions, the lens opens to f/1.5, the widest aperture to ever be on a smartphone. As usual with Nokia, you get the latest version of Android - in this case Android 8.0 Oreo - and the promise of speedy updates in the future. One of the key features is Super Slow-Mo video, which records 720p at 960fps. The two apertures stops are f/1.5 and f/2.4.

We indeed have some great choices - the likes of Ben Stokes, Ajinkya Rahane, Steve Smith who bring leadership values with them. He has played 69 matches in the IPL so far scoring 1703 runs at an average of 37.02 with one hundred and five half-centuries.

Further, the Galaxy S9 has an additional port for the 3.5mm headphone jack. You still get the full glass finish and a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED panel with 2960x1440 pixel resolution on the S9, while S9 Plus gets a bigger 6.2-inch screen.

The South-Korean tech giant has been more than vocal to showcase the improved camera and the brand new dual-camera setup on the larger variant.

The S9 comes with 3,000mAh battery whereas the S9+ houses 3,500mAh battery. However, if the latest rumors are anything to go by, the Galaxy S9 could be priced at Rs 62,500 for the 64GB model, and Rs 71,000 for the 256GB model. You can tackle this be scrolling to the top of your mobile browser, and clicking on the link button which then should display all the best deals for the Samsung Galaxy S9+. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, to recall, were launched in India at Rs 57,900 and Rs 64,900 respectively.

Samsung will possibly launch Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus phone in India by March. In the USA, the price of the Galaxy S9 starts at $719.99 (roughly Rs. 46,600). We can expect pricing in India to sport a significant premium over their USA counterparts.

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