Earlier this year, Samsung launched its flagship smartphones — Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus in India. Now, the South Korea-based company has launched a new variant of the Galaxy S9 Plus in the Indian market — Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Sunrise Gold Limited Edition. The Sunrise Gold and Burgundy Red color variants for both S9 and S9 Plus were announced last month.
The smartphone joins the list of already available color variants, which includes Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple. Along with this, the company has also announced a TV Control widget, which offers a one-of-its-kind unified convergence solution between mobiles and televisions.
When enabled through Smart Things app and when the user is in the vicinity of a television, the TV Control widget will automatically show up on the phone and allow two-way screen mirroring and sound mirroring.
The widget also has a ‘Play Sound’ mode which allows consumers to stream and share music from mobile with others around by using the television as a Bluetooth speaker using the “Device to TV” option. Consumers can also enjoy mobile games on a big screen by mirroring their mobile screen on to their television.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Sunrise Gold Limited Edition is priced at Rs. 68,900, which roughly converts to $1013. Samsung is offering a special one-time screen replacement offer and Rs.9,000 (approx. $132) cashback when customers pay using Paytm Mall or ICICI Bank credit cards.
The smartphone will be available across selected retail stores from 20th June 2018, and pre-booking on Samsung Shop and Flipkart from today.
The smartphone comes with a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display which supports QHD+ resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels and comes with a new kind of coating on the screen that delivers deeper blacks. It is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9810 octa-core processor with Mali G72MP18 GPU.
