9 features you might have missed on the Samsung Galaxy S9

However, these speakers will not be on the front but will be located on the top and bottom edges of the devices. All of that pretty much fits with the pre-launch rumour trail, however.

To the untrained eye, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 look nigh-on identical.

Right, so let's break that down a bit shall we? That's a great change if you ask me.

It's the biggest mobile launch of the year so far: the Samsung Galaxy S9 (and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus), the phones that are going to take on whatever Apple and Google have planned for this year, as well as the usual competition from the likes of LG, HTC, Sony, OnePlus, Huawei and more.

For the Galaxy S9+ the deals to watch are £99.99 upfront at £63pm with 25GB on EE, £129.99 upfront at £61pm with 20GB on O2, and £99.99 upfront at £63pm with 16GB with Vodafone.

Both the phones ship with Android Oreo OS and have IP68-rated water and dust resistance. The iris scanner, for example, is no longer visible unless it's actively being used. One can also manually choose between the two in the manual mode. Samsung claims that this will allow the Galaxy S9 flagships to capture 28 percent more light compared to the previous iteration. However, once the specifications and features (or lack thereof) were revealed, many were disappointed to learn that the Galaxy S9 wouldn't be a significant departure from what we saw with the S8. Having said that, all four models from both ranges have 12MP sensors for the primary camera, and 8MP for the secondary. But drilling down into the details is where things start to add up. The new phone's biggest selling point is a collection of minor improvements to its camera, which is already among the best in the smartphone business. Moreover, the f/2.4 aperture will help in preventing too much exposure in the pictures taken in a very bright environment.

Basically, if battery life is a concern you'll want to spend the $120 more and get the Galaxy S9+. When asked about the possibility of a change in naming for the upcoming Galaxy S flagship in 2019, Koh said that the Galaxy brand will remain but the company has been thinking "whether we need to maintain the S moniker or the numbering system".

Naturally, with a new generation comes a new processor suite.

As for the pricing in India, the Galaxy S9 will start at Rs 57,900 for 64GB model according to Gadgets 360. Both the smartphones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (in the US) or Exynos 9810 SoC (in other markets).

The wider the hole, the more light that gets let in. With more RAM than the iPhone X and an identical amount to the just-released Galaxy S9, it is capable of some impressive performance that can keep up with - and even exceed - Apple's best efforts. S9 comes with 64GB of storage and support for microSD cards. It also has Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), LED flash, laser autofocus, 4K video at 60fps (frames per second), slo-mo 720p (HD) at 960fps, and 1080p (full HD) at 240fps. The feature, however, will be available only to a select regions for now.
