The devices, which were unveiled at the Mobile Word Congress (MWC), held in Barcelona on the 25th February 2018, will be available for sale in Sri Lanka from March onwards.
Speaking at the launch, Managing Director of Samsung Sri Lanka - HanBae Park said,"In an age where individualism is constantly being expressed through images, emojis and video content, we have reimagined a smartphone for the future, with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+."
Pre Orders can be placed from 10th to 23rd March 2018 and the devices will be available from March 23 onwards in three stunning hues - Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple. Prices of the devices are as follows :
Galaxy S9 Galaxy S9+
64GB LKR 142,900 LKR 160,900
128GB LKR 177,900
The Galaxy S9 features Dolby Atmos, enhanced front-facing speakers and a camera that has the potential to beat the Google Pixel 02. The Galaxy S9 retains its overall slick look, with the fingerprint scanner now beneath the camera, rather than being tucked tightly beside. It also offers iris scanning and facial recognition. The metal and glass body retains its curved display, IP68 water-resistance rating and a headphone jack, which is almost a novelty in 2018.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 is with a 5.8-inch display and a massive 6.2-inch display for Galaxy S9+. The camera is a distinct improvement over the S8 thanks to the new adaptive-aperture technology and the world's first f/1.5 aperture on a smartphone. The low-light photos are going to be top-of-the-line and changes have also been made to the fingerprint sensor location and stereo speakers.
