Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Launched: Latest Reviews


The South-Korean Giant Company, Samsung, Launched its new addition to the S series today. Samsung S9 and S9+ are out now. Here is the hand on a review of both the mobile phones for you.

Big changes from the S8 series

S9 lacks in looks, as Samsung postpones its major-redesigning for yet another year. It has done nothing great for the looks but has compensated it by the absolutely amazing hardware.

It has new blazing fast chipsets in it and it is Samsung’s first camera with a variable aperture which gives super-slow-motion video capturing at 960fps.

It also has high-quality stereo speakers which were a much-awaited feature in Samsung smartphones. But there is one main feature between the two new models launched. Both the models have this variable aperture but S9+ has a secondary telephoto camera which is borrowed from note 8’s back.

Features of both the models

Talking about the features which these two phones are offering, both have a polished aluminium frame with Gorilla glass 5 frames on front and back. Both have water and dust resistance. And the colours in which they are available are Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Titanium Gray, Lilac Purple colour schemes.

Both have a 5.8” display with super AMOLED infinity and a top-class resolution, as expected by Samsung. Both the phones are having the 12mp rear camera and 8mp front camera with them which will give you an amazing photographic experience. Android OS 8.0 Oreo is the software/OS on which they’ll run.

Both are having lightning fast processing speeds with Snapdragon 845 octa-core processors. Here S9 is coming with only 4gb variant whereas S9+ has 6gb variant also and both have 64gb/128gb/256gb variants available in terms of memory. S9 is coming with 3,000 mAH battery whereas S9+ is coming with 3,500 mAH battery with it. Samsung has also launched new AR emoji feature with this phones giving a tough competition to Apple’s emoji feature.

Price in India

Estimated price of these smartphones in India is Rs 46,600 for S9 and Rs 54,000 for S9+.


So, that was our first encounter with the Galaxy S9 pair. Looks can be deceiving and that’s exactly the case here. While the S9 and S9+ may look like their S8 counterparts, the duo is more powerful, features a brand-new camera experience, and allows for immersive sound through its loudspeaker system. There is a lot more to explore, of course, and we can’t wait for those review units to arrive.
