How Samsung moved beyond its exploding phones

Tech review: Is the Samsung S9 the best phone in the world? Galaxy S9 and S9+ pre-orders start in Canada as well
Edmund Robinson | 01 March, 2018, 13:19

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will go up for pre-order in March, earlier pre-orders units will ship on the 6th, and the handset will be widely available at the end of the month. We can expect pricing in India to sport a significant premium over their United States counterparts.

The Galaxy S9 Plus At the back, hold the dual camera modules - one is a 12-megapixel variable aperture camera (ranging between f/1.5 to f/2.4) with a wide-angle lens, and other is a 12-megapixel telephoto lens of aperture f/2.4.

Tech giant Samsung, which launched its new flagship smartphones Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, will now launch the smartphones in India. It can also take 960 fps "Super Slow-mo" video which can be posted to social media. It allows you to essentially turn yourself into an emoji, that looks just like you. The phone also offers QLens which taps into image recognition to help improve online shopping - scanning QR codes will serve up information about the cheapest availability, while image searches offer detailed information on tourist spots, or provide similar photos of food, fashion and celebrities. AR Emoji uses AI to analyse 2D image of the user and creates a 3D model reflecting the user's facial expressions. The Pixel 2 XL houses the not-as-efficient Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM. Both the smartphones come with varying apertures called dual apertures. He didn't provide any figures but reports suggest that the Galaxy S8 is estimated to have sold 37 million units since its release in April a year ago.




Samsung took the wraps off its Galaxy S9 line on Monday, answering headline features of chief rival Apple's iPhone X, while positioning its camera as the industry's best. Lastly, there are limited pieces available, so be vigilant if you wish to pick one up for yourself or someone else. Airtel will keep registrations open for the Galaxy S9 duo till March 4.

While we do feel that the Galaxy S9 Plus comes out on top, the Galaxy Note 8 is certainly a capable phone that may appeal to those who are looking for a tablet-esque smartphone complete with a stylus and bigger screen. Both devices are also IP68 certified, meaning that they're both dust proof and water resistant (up to a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes). Both phones have an identical 8-megapixel autofocus front camera f/1.7 sensor.
