Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ launch event is just around the corner where Samsung will take the wraps off of its newer flagship devices on February 25 ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona. A multitude of reports and leaks have already given away almost all the specifications and features of both the smartphones. Samsung has teased the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to come with superior cameras in its invite and the promotional videos, as well. While we have a clear idea of what newer Galaxy devices are going to pack inside, the pricing of both the devices has been a matter of debate. In line with the earlier reports, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are expected to be costlier than the predecessors – Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ – with a new leak tipping the price of the smartphones.

According to the famous tipster Evan Blass, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be priced higher than the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. In a tweet, he shared the pricing of the smartphones claiming that the Galaxy S9 will be priced at 841 euros and the Galaxy S9+ will bear a price tag of 997 euros. The India prices of both the smartphones will be equivalent to Rs 67,00 and Rs 80,000, respectively. Blass is known for sharing the pricing of the upcoming devices accurately, so the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ prices should be close to the aforementioned ones.

As we said, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be launched on February 25 at 6 pm CET (10:30 pm IST). It has been reported that the pre-orders for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will begin on February 26 in the first wave countries while the shipping would begin from March 16. As far as the India launch is concerned, Samsung usually brings its devices to India soon after the global launch. Flipkart has already teased the smartphone on its platform, confirming that Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will initially be available online via Flipkart. The launch and availability dates for the India launch are not known as of now.

Moreover, it should be noted that the above-mentioned prices are for the Snapdragon 845 processor powered models of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Samsung, as usual, is expected to introduce its Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC powered variants in the US and China. The markets outside these two countries, including India, will see the launch of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ models powered by the company’s own Exynos 9810 processor. The Exynos 9810 models of the newer Galaxy devices were previously reported to have scored impressive results on the Geekbench benchmarking website where it nearly outperformed all other Android devices.

The previous reports and leaks have collectively revealed almost all the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The Galaxy S9 will sport a 5.9-inch Quad-HD+ Super-AMOLED display while the Galaxy S9+ is expected to pack a 6.2-inch Quad-HD+ Super-AMOLED display, both with 18.5:9 aspect ratios. Along with the two processor models – Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810, the Galaxy S9 will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage while the Galaxy S9+ will bear 6GB of RAM along with 128GB of internal storage. Apart from this, both the smartphones will come with ‘Reimagined’ cameras where dual apertures are being speculated to be equipped with the lenses. The Samsung Galaxy S9 will have a single rear camera having a 12-megapixel shooter with f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures while the Galaxy S9+ will come with two 12-megapixel cameras on the rear, wherein one camera will have f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures and the other will have just the f/2.4 aperture. The front camera on both the devices will be an 8-megapixel shooter.
