The gathering in Barcelona got a chance to get an instant demo in the form of augmented reality.

The enterprise version of the device will also have features like FOTA (Firmware Over-The-Air) where the IT team can directly push company wide firmware updates to all the devices.

Processors and RAM: Both phones will take advantage of either an Octa-core Snapdragon 845 or an Octa-core Exynos 9810, depending on region. Other differences include memory (6GB on Plus, vs. 4GB), and battery-sizes (3500mAh, vs. 3000mAh).

For some, the Galaxy S9 might just be an incremental upgrade over the Galaxy S8, but the refinements surely make the new smartphone a valuable product. If you're wondering what the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ look like, well wonder no more. The S8 and S8+ smartphones cost $1,148 and $1,298 respectively, when they were launched previous year.

Similar in appearance to its predecessor, the new Galaxy S9 comes with a 5.8-inch Super Amoled screen with 18:5:9 screen ratio and QHD+ resolution (1,440x2,960 pixels). It will launch with colours: Midnight Black, Coral Blue and a new hue, Lilac Purple.

Samsung has also, for some reason, tried to emulate one of the sillier features of Apple's latest flagship smartphone, the iPhone X. That launched with "Animoji", which deploy the sensors on the phone to animate emoji to make it look like you're a talking fox, alien, or poo. The Galaxy S9+ features a dual-camera setup at the rear with a combination of two 12-megapixel sensors with one of them featuring variable aperture as mentioned above along with a secondary sensor with f/2.4 aperture. However, the primary module is still the same for both. The cameras automatically range from f1/5 - f/2.4, or you can manually adjust the aperture. The camera also comes with enhanced Super Slo-mo videos at 960fps in 720p. After capturing the Super Slow-mo video, users can select background music from 35 different options or add a tune from their favorite playlist. Both cameras feature optical image stabilization.

The biggest change though is on the back of these phones. For camera enthusiasts, the Galaxy S9+ might be a better pick as it features the more-commonly found telephoto lens.

Samsung's theory may be not to mess with success: The S8 design (now passed to the S9) was revolutionary, beating Apple's iPhone X to the all-screen look by several months.

Moving to the most important aspect of the device, the camera. AR Emoji uses a data-based machine learning algorithm, which analyzes a 2D image of the user and maps out more than 100 facial features to create a 3D model that reflects and imitates expressions, like winks and nods, for true personalization. These emojis can even be shared with other smartphones without this technology.

Apart from this, both the devices will have an AKG Tuned Loud Dual stereo Speaker with Dolby Atmos with fast wireless charging and carry an IP68 water resistant rating. Pre-order customers can save up to $350 with a qualifying trade-in, to be determined by the retailer. Samsung is also offering an Enterprise edition for businesses that will also go on sale from March 16.
