Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ offer better camera, slow-mo videos

Both phones use curved AMOLED screens with the QuadHD resolution. The fingerprint reader on the back moved an inch toward the middle.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco, no doubt, is the most good looking phone that the company has designed under HMD Global, but owing to its over 95 per cent glass body, the phone could also prove to be the most fragile device they have created yet. This is especially true for these two phones.

Samsung Mobile chief D J Koh did talk about the feature briefly in his keynote at the Unpacked event where Samsung launched the two phones. 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.

- The S9 has a 3000 mAh battery and the S9+ has a 3500 mAh battery. The big change is that you get variable aperture. For example, it you are recording a baseball game and want to record what happens when the ball comes into the seam Galaxy S9's software determines exactly when to record. The f/1.24 is used for bright scenes. The rear camera lets you capture 960 frames per second, which is four times slower than the Galaxy S8, and the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The front camera packs in 8MP and an f/1.7 aperture. And now, said Koh, Samsung is adding blood pressure monitoring feature in the Galaxy S9.

Both the devices come with a number of key features.

Samsung's answer is AR Emoji, and it advances the idea with a cartoon that looks kind of like you. These AR emojis can also be sent to other users during text conversations. Screen margins are just a touch slimmer at the bottom and top of the phone, and the biggest adjustment is the physical opening and closing of the camera aperture. The feature, however, will be available only to a select regions for now.

The appeal of phone VR is simplicity and affordability: Just use a $100-ish set of goggles and your phone, and you're set. However, the lack of a 3.5mm port may not be missed on the Nokia 8 so much as it also brings with it wireless-charging capabilities.

This is a unique feature of Galaxy S9 that makes it different from other flagship phones available. In truth, the Galaxy S9 is an upgrade in power, but is overall a safe step forward that doesn't take any risks. It is interesting to note that this will be the fastest that a Galaxy device has been introduced in the Indian market.

Although Apple has an incredibly popular phone on their hands, that's not to say that the Galaxy S9 and Google Pixel 2 don't put up a fierce fight.

This could also see the Indian pricing of the phone being hiked and the phone crossing the Rs 45,000-mark.
