Samsung ' s Galaxy S 9 starts shipping on March 16. Here's how it stacks up against Apple's iPhone X . The screen on Samsung ’ s smartphones can show information like the time, date, battery level, and notification icons even when the display is turned off — essentially allowing them to double as a

(Bloomberg) -- When Microsoft revealed a replacement to Windows 8, it skipped the number 9 and went straight to Windows 10. Apple’s iPhone 8 was followed by the iPhone X (pronounced “ten”). But Samsung refused to follow: The successor to its Galaxy S8 is the Galaxy S9 (and a larger S9 Plus), and it’s coming out in March.

The phone is critical for the company. Samsung needs to show it has the hardware and software chops to maintain its leadership in the Android market, while proving Apple isn’t king of smartphone design. Then there’s fending off rising Chinese competition from Huawei and reassuring investors that Vice Chairman Jay Y. Lee has the company’s future under control since his legal woes commanded global headlines.

The Samsung Galaxy S 9 could be the iPhone X 's biggest rival, but how do these two phones compare ? The iPhone X meanwhile was a completely new design for Apple and in some ways it arguably looks more modern than Samsung ' s effort, with even less bezel on the front, and instead

But above all, Samsung needs to be better than the iPhone X in the eyes of consumers. Here’s how they compare.

Photography and Video

Great pictures are essential for any top-end phone. Samsung has equipped the S9 Plus with two cameras: a wide-angle, and a telephoto (like the iPhone X) and both capture at a resolution of 12 megapixels (also like the iPhone X). Samsung even mounts the two lenses of the S9 Plus vertically — something Apple also does with its flagship. 

But the big difference may come with low-light performance. When you take a picture with the S9, you actually capture 12 images simultaneously. The phone then compares all exposures to create a single shot that includes all the detail you want, but with as little grain and noise as possible. It’s similar to how the iPhone X processes high-dynamic range photos, taking three images at different levels of light exposure to combine them to produce a richer, more balanced image.

  More Galaxy S9 images leak, showing off redesigned fingerprint reader and lilac color Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S9 in a few weeks at Mobile World Congress on February 25th, and the latest leak from Evan Blass on Twitter is giving us our best look at the phone yet. Also seen in the new picture is the two-camera module that the larger S9 Plus will have, which looks to be a vertically oriented module similar to the iPhone X. Samsung’s tease highlighted that the devices would offer improvements to the camera, but we’ll have to wait and see what they’ve got up their sleeve beyond the usual annual upgrades.

Samsung’s decision to expand this technology in the S9 compliments the physical camera lens, which has a wider aperture to let in more light — an f1.5 aperture compared to Apple’s f1.8. In the camera world, that small change can make a big difference.

Screen and Design

Most features are the same across S9 and S9 Plus models, aside from the camera system. But the latter version is larger: it uses a 6.2-inch display compared to the regular S9’s 5.8-inch offering. The large and small variants weigh 189 grams and 163 grams (a little under six ounces) respectively.

The iPhone X weighs 174 grams — right in the middle of Samsung’s two models. But the screen is one big difference. Apple’s famous “notch” atop the iPhone X’s display is not something Samsung adopted. Instead, the S9 screen is an uninterrupted rectangle. The bezels at the top and bottom of the display are thin, but Apple’s are thinner. Consumers will have a choice: slimmer bezels but with a notch, or no notch but slightly larger bezels. 

5 ways Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 is better than the iPhone X

  5 ways Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 is better than the iPhone X Officially, it's only day 2 of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain. But everyone at the event and around the world already knows that the high point of the show is already behind us. Tech journalists and bloggers will spend a ton of time in the coming weeks comparing Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to dozens of different smartphones. Some comparisons will be more useful than others, but the most important one is fairly obvious. When the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are released on March 16th, they’ll be Samsung’s best smartphones ever. So it’s only right that we spend some time comparing them to Apple’s best smartphone ever, the iPhone X.

Samsung on Sunday unveiled its new Galaxy S 9 and Galaxy S 9 + flagship phones, which are surprisingly exciting for a pair of smartphones that had been branded We’ll pit the iPhone X against Samsung ’ s latest and greatest in a number of different ways once we get our hands on review units.

Horsepower and Performance

In the U.S., Samsung will equip the Galaxy S9 with Qualcomm’s latest and greatest system-on-a-chip, the Snapdragon 845. On paper, it includes a CPU that runs at speeds up to 2.8GHz and has eight processing cores. In other regions, such as Europe, Samsung will use its own Exynos processor, not Qualcomm’s.

Until the phone gets released for review it’s impossible to say how well the Galaxy S9 will perform compared to its own international variant, let alone to the iPhone X. Apple’s phone uses its own A11 Bionic chip, which runs at up to about 2.4GHz, using six processing cores. But historically Apple’s custom-designed silicon, its integration with the iOS software it powers, together with the rest of the hardware in the phone, has given it the edge over competitors whose numbers, on paper, appear greater. What’s safe to say is that both phones should handle anything realistically thrown at them.

Features and Security

Apple has never let customers expand internal storage of the iPhone with removable SD memory. But Samsung does with the S9. It’ll have 64GB built in, but it supports Micro SD cards with up to 400GB of additional capacity. Apple will sell you up to 256GB of internal storage when you choose an iPhone X, but after that you’ll need to rely on cloud-based file-hosting, such as iCloud or Dropbox. 

Samsung Note 9 in-screen fingerprint reader could be held back for Galaxy S10

  Samsung Note 9 in-screen fingerprint reader could be held back for Galaxy S10 If you were looking forward to a Samsung Note 9 with an in-screen fingerprint reader, the latest news may leave you disappointed. Twitter user 'Ice Universe' tweeted on 3 March 2018, that the cutting-edge unlock technology was being tested on the Note 9, but now a respected industry analyst says that the feature will not be ready in time for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 release date later this year.

Images of Samsung ’ s next flagship smartphone, presumably called the Galaxy S 9 , have appeared on Chinese social media, leading to comparisons with the Apple iPhone X . Digital renderings of what appear to be the Galaxy S 9 were shared by users on the Chinese social network Weibo, suggesting

Apple's iPhone X © Getty Images Apple's iPhone X But Apple users will most likely still feel their iPhone X hardware is in the lead, as Samsung is continuing to use fingerprint sensors and iris scanning for unlocking the latest Galaxy. That isn’t thought to be as sophisticated as Apple’s system, which maps the contours of a human face to identify an individual and was deemed secure enough to no longer require fingerprints at all. Samsung, instead, also includes a fingerprint reader on the rear of the phone.

Samsung has also taken the idea of Apple’s animated emojis, which use the front-facing camera to let users animate facial features of a unicorn and more by moving their own face. Samsung is introducing a similar feature with the S9, but rather than using existing emojis it will let you create an avatar of yourself and animate that instead. These can be shared as videos of animated GIFs via email or text message.

Price and Verdict

Apple and Samsung both know people are keeping the phones for longer, so manufacturers need to have those that do upgrade to pay more. Apple’s iPhone X starts at $999 — $200 more than the iPhone 8. Samsung is also increasing the price of its flagship, bumping the S9 up $100, to $950 in the case of the Plus model.

These phones are the most expensive flagships either has made within their categories, and on paper they share remarkable similarities. Aesthetically, there’s a bigger difference between an iPhone 8 and an iPhone X, particularly in terms of raw industrial design, screen size and display quality. Samsung’s S9 offers less of a noticeable upgrade physically compared to the S8, but improved photographic features and raw horsepower will be key selling points to potential upgraders.

As for the customer on the fence over whether to defect from one manufacturer to another, it’ll be a trade-off between screen format and bezels, expandable storage, low-light photography and physical look and feel. Elsewhere we’re still in the realm of very attractive slabs of glass and metal, despite record highs in cost.

This new Samsung Galaxy phone can't connect to the internet .
Would you buy a smartphone without internet connectivity?That's right. No 3G, no LTE, no Wi-Fi, no nothing. Samsung says the phone is intended for students and senior citizens as a way for them to make calls and use apps, minus the distractions or confusions of going online.
