Galaxy S9 vs iPhone X: Samsung's latest takes on Apple's best

Samsung India to launch Galaxy S9, S9 Plus on March 6, to be priced above Rs 60000

Samsung-obsessive tech blog SamMobile recently got its hands on the Galaxy S9's 19 new background images and uploaded them to a Google Drive folder for anyone to use. The S9 sports a 5.8-inch Quad HD + Curved Super AMOLED, 18.5:99,10 (570ppi) screen while the S9+ 6.2-inch Quad HD + Curved Super AMOLED, 18.5:99,10 (529ppi). Both the devices are dust and water resistant. The addition of Dolby Atmos will deliver three-dimensional sound to provide you with a theater-like experience. The unlocked Galaxy S9+ straight from Samsung will be $839.99 outright or $35/month for 24 months. The device can also expand up to 400GB with the addition of a Micro SD card. Portrait mode proves the differences in the image processing between Apple and Samsung - lifelike feeling on the iPhone X vs. extremely fine details on the Galaxy S9+ for the sake of true colors.

The most attractive features of the smartphones that Samsung is banking on are AR Emoji and Bixby. If you're using the camera in the day, the aperture automatically adjusts to its biggest opening, f/2.4.

The selfie camera on the Galaxy S9+ is the same as the one in the predecessor Galaxy S8 - 12 MP with f/1.7 lens.

Moreover, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, are expected to land in India sometime around 16 March which is also when these phones start selling globally. It's similar to Apple's Animojis in the sense that it mimics your facial expressions and such, but AR Emoji takes it a step further. It was the first smartphone camera to include dual apertures, with one f/2.4 aperture for wonderfully crisp pictures of well-lit scenes, and a second f/1.5 aperture for shockingly clear low-light photos. Basically, as long as you're shooting video, a slow-motion version will also be recorded. Whether you want more data or unlimited minutes, our price comparison table updates in real time offering you the best deals available at any time of the day. Airtel will keep registrations open for the Galaxy S9 duo till March 4.

Convenient features like Qi wireless charging and fast-charging are also supported, so you will not be missing out on much with this purchase.

Samsung will have these devices in three colors: Lilac Purple, Midnight Black, and Coral Blue. In the U.S., Verizon, AT&T and Sprint are raising prices from what the S8 cost at launch - to almost $800 for the regular-size S9 and more than $900 for the larger S9 Plus.
