Samsung has announced the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + earlier this year. Both new items went on sale in mid-March. After a month of sales, the analytical company Canalys shared interesting information.
What was told
According to Canalys, Samsung shipped 8 million units of Galaxy S9 / S9 +. These figures coincide with last year’s Galaxy S8 / S8 + figures for the same period. But unlike the S8 / S8 +, this time more sent just the Plus-version of the smartphone. This is due to the fact that it has more differences from the usual S9. However, Samsung failed to beat the record Galaxy S7 / S7 + (9 million units for the first month of sales). But despite this, according to analysts’ forecasts, the manufacturer can set a record sales, compared with last year’s model.
Recall, the Galaxy S9 and S9 + received AMOLED-displays. The normal version has a screen of 5.8 inches, the Plus version has 6.2 inches. We have both flagships sold with Exynos 9810 chips, but in the US and at home – Snapdragon 845. In addition to the screens, the capacity of the batteries is also different: 3000 mAh and 3500 mAh, respectively. But the most important difference was the main camera. In Galaxy S9 installed one module at 12 Mp, and in Galaxy S9 + – dual (both 12 Mp). Of the features, smartphones have protection from water and a headphone jack.
