Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone was announced on Sunday at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona.

The newest models S9 and S9+ will go on sale March 16, but customers will be able to pre-order it this Friday (March 2).

Nexter.org compared Samsung S9 with Apple’s X.

Design and Display

The two phones have a number of similarities, such as their OLED screen technology and a major focus on photography, but there’s a whole lot more that’s different.

Here’s how new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ looks:

The Galaxy S9 has a similar design to its previous model – Galaxy S8.

IT has the a 5.8-inch quadHD AMOLED display with a tall 18:9 aspect ratio, which is now pretty standard among the top flagship smartphones.

The Galaxy S9+ has a 6.2-inch quadHD AMOLED display, also with a 18:9 aspect ratio.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 comes in a new color – lilac purple additionally to midnight black, titanium grey, and coral blue.

Twitter users criticized the variety of available colors wishing to see gold or rose gold options.

Camera and photography skills  

The Galaxy S9 has the potential to take better photos than any previous Galaxy S smartphone but what if comparing to X?

Both cameras have 12 MP and Samsung’s S9 Plus has even two cameras: a wide-angle, and a telephoto (like the X).

However, Samsung new flagships are equipped with a f1.5 aperture compared to Apple’s f1.8. This feature allows taking more sharp and qualitative photos in the low-light conditions.

When you take a picture with the S9, you actually capture 12 images simultaneously and the phone then creates a single shot that includes all the detail you want, but with as little grain and noise as possible.

Also, Samsung allows slow motion shooting at up to 960fps, compared to just 240fps on the X.

AR Emoji

If you’ve been dreaming about Apple’s Animoji, Samsung also has something to offer.

The Galaxy S9 has a similar feature called AR Emoji, that allows you create an emoji of your face and have it mimic your expressions.

That’s powered by the 8MP f/1.7 front-facing camera, while the X has a 7MP f/2.2 one.

The price

Preorders for the Galaxy S9 begin on March 2 starting for $720 for the regular Galaxy S9 model, and $840 for the Galaxy S9+.

As for X prices start from $999 for 64 Gb and $1,149 for 256 Gb.

The fingerprint sensor

Samsung S8 users were satisfied with the location of the fingerprint sensor and the developers heard the message.

The fingerprint sensor is now underneath the camera, which should hopefully make it more natural to use.
