Screen margins are just a touch slimmer at the bottom and top of the phone, and the biggest adjustment is the physical opening and closing of the camera aperture.
Global cybersecurity firm McAfee on Tuesday extended its partnership with Samsung, saying it will protect the newly launched flagship Galaxy S9 smartphones, Galaxy Note 8, Smart TVs, PCs and notebooks from cyberthreats. Based on what we saw, it is clear that the device can now perform better in low light condition but others think thadoe colors does not look as accurate as the previous models.
The Nokia 8 on the other hand also features an improved camera set-up with the device now sporting a 12-megapixel +13-megapixel dual camera set-up at the rear with 2X optical zoom and the ability to shoot images with depth of field effects. The Galaxy S9 smartphone which is very much the same as the Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch edge to edge display while the Galaxy S9+ will be much larger with a 6.2-inch display. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ cameras can shoot slow-mo videos with 960FPS. Samsung gummed that up a bit over the last couple of years by requiring slightly different new models of Gear VR to fit its newer phones, most recently the Note 8 last year.
2017's Gear VR will work with the Galaxy S9 and GS9 Plus. Both are dust and water resistant thanks to the IP68 certification, have fast charging and fast wireless charging, and feature 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries respectively.More news: Kaala Teaser Release Postponed

The cameras also boast AR capabilities, with Samsung introducing its AR Emoji, the company's answer to Apple's Animated Emojis. The feature, however, will be available only to a select regions for now.
The more affordable phone from the Galaxy S9 line-up is being expected to sport a price tag that's in excess of Rs 60,000. But by downloading these free wallpapers you can easily give your phone the Galaxy S9 feel. According to Samsung, the S8 version might damage the S9 and not fit perfectly.
This price would thus see it crossing the mid-segment flagship price point, but would still leave it looking favourable in front of the Galaxy S9 which brings similar specs and a similar design to that of the Nokia 8 Sirocco.
So that is about the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ hardware and features. And for anyone who treats smartphone photography as a hobby or form of communication, a few of the S9's improvements may pique interest - though they still need to be tested. Local pricing has not been announced at the time of writing.
