Samsung Galaxy S9+ big new features come at a huge price

Now, the Indian launch date of the latest Samsung flagships is officially out. The company then expanded by also including ability to monitor the blood oxygen level through the phone. However, the Nokia 8 does lose out when it comes to the front camera set-up as it only brings a 5-megapixel camera as opposed to the 8-megapixel one on the S9.

But before we talk of that a quick look at the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+.

In fact, with a cost of £869 SIM-only, the S9+ is £130 more expensive than the standard £739 Galaxy S9.

Get out your magnifying glasses, folks: The S9's screen margins are a smidge slimmer at the top and bottom. Both are Infinity displays with Super AMOLED panels and Quad HD+ resolution.

While Sirocco is the flagship of a five device line-up by Nokia launched with the aim of gaining control over the market, the Galaxy S9 represents a device that carries on its shoulders the weight of expectations of the current market leader of the smartphone market. All three storage variants will come with 4GB RAM. The Galaxy S9+ also has additional camera that too comes with a 12-megapixel sensor.

Its slow-motion is now super slow - 960 frames per second - to capture every hilarious millisecond. In other words, they kind of slow down the time. The S9's battery might last a tiny bit longer, they say - but I keep hoping for a quantum leap.

In Ireland, the phones will be on sale from 16 March with pre-orders open since 25 February.

This is a unique feature of Galaxy S9 that makes it different from other flagship phones available.

Both the devices come with a number of key features.

So that is about the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ hardware and features. It's a new feature and hence kind of experimental right now.

This larger device not only gets a bigger battery and more RAM but a also the inclusion of a dual-lens camera on its rear case.

This will be done through an app called My BP Lab. And for anyone who treats smartphone photography as a hobby or form of communication, a few of the S9's improvements may pique interest - though they still need to be tested. But if the experiments work out fine, there is no doubt that Samsung will expand the availability. Combined with a simple and intuitive UI from the company responsible for the ongoing development of the world's most popular operating system, it's clear that the Google Pixel 2 has been a big win for Google.
