A new leak by Evan Blass has revealed the European prices of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. The Galaxy S9 will retain for EUR 841, while the S9+ will be priced at EUR 997. However, if industry trend prevails, the prices could be EUR 849 and EUR 999, respectively. A previous leak suggested that the Galaxy S9 would be priced at EUR 837 and the Galaxy S9+ would retail for EUR 905.
It is fair to assume that the price of the smartphones will be much higher than the official price of their predecessors. In India, iGyaan reported that the Galaxy S9 will be priced at Rs. 69000 which is higher than the price of the Galaxy S8. In fact, the Galaxy S9 base variant would be priced higher than the Galaxy Note 8 if the price is accurate.
Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ Specifications:
The Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to have a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED QHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio, with narrow bezels. Under the hood, the smartphone will be powered by either Snapdragon 845 chipset or Exynos 9810. According to a leak, the device will be offered in two storage options, 4GB RAM/64GB storage and 4GB RAM/128GB storage.
The camera on the Galaxy S9 will have a noticeable upgrade. A leak reveals that the device would have a 12 MP camera with a variable aperture from F/1.5 to F/2.4. The mobile is expected to run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with Experience UI on the top.
Like its predecessors, the Galaxy S9 will have an IP68 water and dust resistance certification. The smartphone will have “Intelligent Scan,” which uses both iris scanner and facial recognition. However, since this technology uses Samsung API, this feature won’t be utilised for banking.
