Your new Galaxy S9 might need a new Gear VR

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9

What You're Missing at This Year's Mobile World Congress

This feature is the blood pressure monitoring sensor that the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ house and if it works the way Samsung is hoping it works, this feature could change the life for millions of people. However, on a closer look, the upper and lower bezels, or the infinity display, have been reduced slightly.

Get out your magnifying glasses, folks: The S9's screen margins are a smidge slimmer at the top and bottom. Both feature QHD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960.

In fact, with a cost of £869 SIM-only, the S9+ is £130 more expensive than the standard £739 Galaxy S9. The Galaxy S9 has 4GB RAM, the S9+ comes with 6GB RAM. Both phones will be available in 64GB and 256GB internal storage variants.

Now, the Indian launch date of the latest Samsung flagships is officially out. Samsung said that to start with the company will use the blood pressure feature in its new phones with help of researchers from University of California, San Francisco. This would end the complaints left-handed users faced with other models. But by downloading these free wallpapers you can easily give your phone the Galaxy S9 feel.

Oh and there's a headphone jack. They are also dust- and water-proof. Samsung says they are 1.4 times louder than the speakers on the previous flagships. For a more immersive experience, the speakers are equipped with Dolby ATMOS surround sound technology.

One of the main highlights of the Samsung Galaxy S9 duo this year is the improved camera technology. The rear side features a 12 MP camera with optical image stabilization.

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. 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. This allows maximum light, capturing crisper colours and details with reduced noise. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ cameras can shoot slow-mo videos with 960FPS.

Samsung's answer is AR Emoji, and it advances the idea with a cartoon that looks kind of like you. Unlike Apple, who uses the existing emojis to be animated according to the expressions of the user, this feature converts your selfie into an emoji. It allows you to create a 3D scan of your face and then customise different things including hair, skin tone, clothes, and accessories.

Here's everything you need to know about the Samsung S9 and S9+.

Samsung chose to double down on the camera.

The S9 and S9+ will be available in four colors; Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, Titanium Grey and Coral Blue.

It will be available on the Google Play store from March 15.
