A hostess shows up Samsung's new S9 (R) and S9 Plus devices after a presentation ceremony at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain Feb. 25, 2018.

Apparently, this new metal, which is also 0.2mm thicker, transfers 1.2 times less shock to the rest of the phone.

Samsung's intelligence platform - Bixby, integrated into the camera, uses Augmented Reality (AR) and deep learning technologies to provide helpful information about a user's surroundings. Just like the previous iterations, both these phones differ in terms of price, screen size, power, and a couple of other features. This was due to the fact that in 2019, Samsung's Galaxy S handset will be known as the Galaxy S10, which while a fully legit name, doesn't look quite as good when it comes to branding.

The launched dates for India still remain a mystery. Meanwhile, Samsung has played a clever move to boost sales - buyers in India can pre-book their Samsung Galaxy S9 and/ or Samsung Galaxy S9+ for merely ₹2,000.

If you want to pre-book, you can do it on the Samsung e-store, from today itself, by making a down payment of Rs. 2,000. The booking amount is the same (₹2000) in this method as well.

Samsung Galaxy S9 begins near a cost of $720 in the United States which is Rs 46,000 plus in India. Samsung had said the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be available from March 16 in select markets. And for the pre-order period we're not expecting too many retailers to shave any pennies off that price point. 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).

Right off the bat, it's easy to see that the Galaxy S9 Plus has the advantage in several different ways.

It's also powered by the new Snapdragon 845 processor, allowing for better speed, battery life and security upgrades; external storage support being upped to 400GB; and it's powered by Android 8.0 Oreo.

Not only does the network have some massive data packages available at bargain rates, but if you sign yourself up for the Galaxy S9 or S9+, you get a free year-long Netflix subscription with your contract. The front camera happens to be an 8-megapixel sensor with a f/1.7 lens. And if you buy through Mobiles.co.uk they also have a Double Your Memory promotion, which means you'll get a free free 64GB microSD card, in addition to the phone's built in 64GB of storage - so you'll definitely have space for all of your selfies.

There are two variants of the wireless charger now: the Fast Charge Wireless Stand and the Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible.
