Samsung and the University of California San Francisco is launching a smartphone research app, My BP Lab giving users the opportunity to measure their blood pressure and stress levels on the new Samsung Galaxy S9/9 Plus. The two phones, which are the flagship Galaxy S phones, have divided the Samsung fans and smartphone enthusiasts. So to separate fact from fiction about the much-awaited latest offering from the South Korean mobile moguls, we're bringing you the lowdown on the key features and specifications that the new phones boast. Like the Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S9 has a 5.8-inch AMOLED display and an 18:9 aspect ratio.

Its slow-motion is now super slow - 960 frames per second - to capture every hilarious millisecond.

Over on the front camera, the S9 isn't letting the iPhone X have all the fun with its augmented-reality Animojis, those cartoons you make come to life by moving your head.

The new camera will take up to 12 shots at once and combine them into a single 12MP image, reducing pixelated noise in some shots.

One of the main highlights of the Samsung Galaxy S9 duo this year is the improved camera technology. Both devices come with OIS.

Samsung has launched its own version of Apple's Animoji and dubbed it the AR emoji.

Apart from the fingerprint scanner, the phones use facial recognition technology and also feature an iris scanner.

In a statement PML-N spokesman said the leadership of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif does not require any office. Under the old act, a person disqualified from holding public office was also barred from leading a political party.

Nokia's also included its "Bothie camera" on the Sirocco.

This is a unique feature of Galaxy S9 that makes it different from other flagship phones available.

But before we talk of that a quick look at the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+.

- Both the S9 and the S9+ have a 8-megapixel front camera.

Although Apple has an incredibly popular phone on their hands, that's not to say that the Galaxy S9 and Google Pixel 2 don't put up a fierce fight. However, the exact price is expected to be announced at the India launch event of the flagship phones. And for anyone who treats smartphone photography as a hobby or form of communication, a few of the S9's improvements may pique interest - though they still need to be tested.

Overall, the Nokia 8 Sirocco with its features and specs is more than a worthy match for the Galaxy S9, but its price tag which is expected to be more affordable than the S9 could see it spoiling the Galaxy S9's party.
