Samsung Electronics launched its flagship smartphones, Galaxy S9 and S9+ in India, with the world’s best camera featuring a Dual Aperture lens, Super Slow-mo capability, AR Emojis that look like you, and stereo speakers tuned by AKG with Dolby Atmos®, among other path-breaking features, reimagining the way people communicate, share and experience the world.
The smartphones have also been reimagined for India with a slew of ‘Make for India’ features that will delight Indian consumers. With Carrier Aggregation, Galaxy S9 & S9+ will be able to stream data 2.5 times faster. They will come bundled with several exciting offers as well as Samsung’s very own loyalty program, Samsung Rewards.
Mr. HC Hong, President and CEO, Samsung Southwest Asia, said, “Galaxy S9 and S9+ are made for today’s age where communication and expression is increasingly happening through images, videos and emojis. India has one of the highest number of social media users, is one of the biggest 4G data markets and one of the fastest growing cashless economy in the world. With Galaxy S9 and S9+, we have reimagined the smartphone for today’s and tomorrow’s India, so that you can ‘Do what you can’t.”
Galaxy S9 and S9+ herald the next level of innovation with Samsung’s advanced camera that has been redesigned with a new Dual Aperture lens that powers a super low light camera like no other smartphone, Super Slow-mo video capabilities at 960 fps and personalized AR Emoji that ensure users do not miss a moment and make their everyday epic.
Galaxy S9 and S9+ deliver an enhanced entertainment experience with powerful stereo speakers tuned by AKG, immersive audio with Dolby Atmos® and a refined edge-to-edge Infinity Display, an innovation that Samsung pioneered in its flagship smartphones last year.
“Galaxy S9 and S9+ are smartphones in a class entirely of their own. With the camera reimagined, now consumers can shoot photos and videos like they can’t with any other smartphone. With cool features like Super Slow-mo and AR Emoji, consumers can express themselves in a way that’s unique and personal to them. Through our partnership with leading operators, Galaxy S9 and S9+ consumers can experience data speeds like never before for faster downloads and uninterrupted streaming. We have also reimagined how you can own these devices with retail and operator partnerships. With this launch, Samsung will further consolidate its leadership in the flagship smartphone segment in India,” said
