  • Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ launching in India on 6 March, pre-booking begins

The Exynos 9810 - which will power most of the Samsung Galaxy S9 units available in the global market - is made under Samsung's 10-nanometer FinFET process, and should show close to double the performance of its predecessor, the Exynos 8895. The option of switching to the extra wide aperture of f/1.5 lets the smartphone capture crisp images even in extremely dimly-lit conditions.

DxOMark credits this impressive score to two features enabled by the Galaxy S9 Plus camera: Dual Aperture and a Super Speed Dual Pixel Sensor. The previous leader was the Google Pixel 2 with a score of 98, followed by the iPhone X with a score of 97.

Overall, this is explicitly described as the "best performing smartphone display" these expert reviewers have ever tested, with an "Excellent A+" grade.

"The Samsung Galaxy S9+ comes with a camera that hasn't got any obvious weaknesses and performs very well across all photo and video test categories", DxOMark notes.

Samsung's brand spanking new flagship is the Galaxy S9, just recently unveiled at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. DXOMark also rates the video shooting capabilities high, stating that the camera had very good stabilization, fast and accurate autofocus, good noise reduction and detail preservation, and decent white balance. The smaller Galaxy S9 uses the same primary camera as the S9+ but misses out on the secondary lens that helps the device get bokeh effect that requires a telephoto lens. According to the camera tests done by DxOMark, the Samsung flagship received an industry best of 104 in photo tests. Both the lenses on Galaxy S9+ support OIS.

If the ultra-luxe Galaxy S9 isn't up your alley, here are a few other deals that look good this weekend. It can also record 4K videos at 60 frames per second.
