Samsung India on Friday announced a new colour edition of its best-selling Galaxy S9+ smartphone, the Sunrise Gold and the availability of a unified mobile to TV convergence solution through the SmartThings app.
The new Sunrise Gold colour redefines Galaxy S9+ with a modern and classy look along with its satin glossy finish which wraps the smartphone in an elegant glow and glimmer.
However, the specifications of the handset remains the same.
On specifications front, Samsung Galaxy S9+ comes with a 6.2-inch curved Super AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
Samsung Galaxy S9+ is equipped with dual 12-megapixel camera lens at the back along with an 8-megapixel camera in the front. The camera also comes with 960fps Super Slow motion capture, AR Emoji and Bixby Intelligence.
Samsung has also announced a TV Control widget, which offers a one-of-its-kind unified convergence solution between mobiles and televisions. Once enabled through Smart Things app, when a user is in the vicinity of a television, the TV Control widget will automatically show up on their phone and allow two-way screen mirroring and sound mirroring.
With the ‘View Screen’ mode in the widget, consumers can carry their television entertainment as they move across rooms by using the ‘TV to device’ option. Consumers can also enjoy mobile games on a big screen by mirroring their mobile screen on to their television using the ‘Device to TV’ option.
The TV Control widget also has a ‘Play Sound’ mode which allows consumers to stream and share music from their mobile with others around by using the television as a Bluetooth speaker using the “Device to TV” option. Reverse sound mirroring using the ‘TV to device’ option turns social entertainment to personal entertainment. So, consumers can listen to TV sound on mobile earphones at night without disturbing others.
Launched in March 2018, Samsung Galaxy S9+ is also available in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple.
Samsung also announced that the Sunrise Gold variant is a limited edition offering and will be available at Rs.68,900. Samsung is also offering a special one-time screen replacement offer* and Rs.9000 cashback* when customers pay using Paytm Mall or ICICI Bank credit cards.
