The Samsung Galaxy S9 has finally been launched, with sights set firmly on Apple’s ultra-high-end iPhone X.
Apple touts its flagship handset as the “future of smartphones”, but both sports 10nm CPUs – the Apple, the company’s own A11 Bionic system on a chip, while the Samsung Galaxy S9 is powered by Samsung’s home-grown Exynos 64-bit octa-core CPU running at up to 2.7GHz.
So how do the two flagships compare? We’ve put them both head-to-head in order to find out.
iPhone X: 143.6×70.9×7.7mm, 179g
Galaxy S9: 147.7×68.7×8.5 mm, 163g
While the Samsung Galaxy S9 doesn’t look too different from the S8, it is a touch thicker and heavier than its predecessor. Compared to the iPhone X, though, it remains lighter, longer and thinner.
Both phones feature a premium all-glass design surrounded by a metal frame, and both are dominated by their respective bezel-less displays.
