The Samsung Galaxy S9 India launch date is March 6, specifically, as per our sources.

The most attractive features of the smartphones that Samsung is banking on are AR Emoji and Bixby. Samsung has also combined with Disney so that users can use Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and The Incredibles as AR Emojis. At one point, I set the S9 side by side with last year's Galaxy S8. and then couldn't figure out which was which. Internal storage is 64GB with microSD card support.

Galaxy S9 is the dual aperture camera lens, with f-stop between f/1.5 and f/2.4.

What with its killer camera (it's the first smartphone with mechanical aperture - meaning that it'll take brilliant photos even when you're in low-light), a better display than ever (it's now AMOLED - so it's ridiculously high quality), and its trademark sleek look, Samsung have created another victor here.

When shooting in sunny open-air situations, the aperture switches to f/2.4.

Its slow-motion is now super slow - 960 frames per second - to capture every hilarious millisecond. "Not only do the new phones enable consumers to shoot great photos and videos anywhere, it's a smartphone that's created to help them connect to others and express themselves in a way that's unique and personal to them". The company also approaches to improve smartphone accessories including wireless chargers, and mobile docking station.

So far only Flipkart has listed the Galaxy S9 duo, but it is not clear if the flagship smartphones will be restricted to the e-commerce portal. Both models are also IP68 dust and water resistant.

The latest Galaxy S9 Plus arrives with a 6.2-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display running at a resolution of 1440x2960pixels, and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. Samsung isn't launching the 128GB storage version in India for now. With two 12MP cameras - one telephoto lens with a fixed f/2.4 aperture, and one wide-angle lens that lets you switch between f/2.4 and f/1.5 aperture - the Galaxy S9 Plus has the chops to produce handsome pictures regardless of the lighting conditions. 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 S9 and S9+ feature a 3000 mAh and 3500 mAh battery respectively.

The Galaxy S9 plus runs Android Oreo out-of-the-box, with Samsung's custom UI.
