Samsung Introduces S9 - Highest Screen to Body Ratio and a Lower Price
Samsung formally introduced the Galaxy S9 and S9+ on Sunday February 25th during the opening of 2018 Mobile World Congress and the Closing Ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Olympics. As shown in Figure 1, relative to the iPhone X it features higher resolution, a higher screen to body ratio, lighter weight despite a larger battery and a significantly lower price. Hardware differences between the S9 and S8 appear to be limited to the S9 being slightly shorter and thicker and heavier than the S8. Relative to the 8+, the S9+ appears to have a slightly higher screen to body ratio of 84.2”, a second 12MP camera and is slightly shorter, wider, thicker and heavier. It is also $10 cheaper.
