There is no confirmation about the device pricing as of now but the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ can be found listed for pre-orders on the company’s official website where you can pre-book the device by paying the Rs. 2,000. The expected price of the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ base variant will be around Rs. 62,500, while the Galaxy S9+ will start at Rs 70,000. Theses pricing are just speculations and we will have to wait a bit more for the official pricing for both of these devices.

The new Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ doesn’t have much difference from its predecessors but it does include a few changes like the reduced bezels, fingerprint scanner relocation and a big change on the camera front.


The new Galaxy S9, S9+ now comes with upgraded camera sensors with f/1.5 apertures which provides better low-light photography. On the other hand, the Galaxy S9+ now has a secondary rear camera with a f/2.4 aperture for an enhanced portrait mode and 2x optical zoom.

Breaking the new benchmark record in smartphone photography, the cameras on the Galaxy S9, S9+ now support ‘super slow-mo’ video recording at 960 frames per second. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any change on the front camera of both these devices.
