The live webcast of the event will be available on the Samsung India Newsroom, as well as the company’s Hindi newsroom, Samsung Bharat.
The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are the latest flagship smartphones from the South Korean consumer electronics giant, and have already earned many an award since their unveiling a couple of weeks ago. While the Galaxy S9 Plus won the GLOMO Award for being the ‘Best Connected Device’ at the MWC 2018, DisplayMate awarded the Galaxy S9 for having the best display among all smartphones. The S9 Plus also received the highest DxOMark score of 99, eclipsing the Pixel 2’s score of 98. For context, the iPhone X received a score of 97 from DxOMark last year.
