Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ beat rivals on download speed

IANS  |  San Francisco 

With download speeds up to 42 per cent faster than its closest competitor Apple, long-lasting battery and more storage, Galaxy S9 and S9+ were on Tuesday touted as the fastest in the global market.

According to Ookla, a leading mobile data speed analyst, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have download speeds that are 37 per cent faster than the iPhone X, 17 per cent faster than the Pixel 2 and 38 per cent faster than the Galaxy S7.

Consumers need phones with the most innovative technology, like the Galaxy S9 and S9+'s CAT 18 LTE modem, which supports network speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps, said in a statement.

"At Samsung, we're constantly innovating and developing products that set the new standard for the industry. Our Galaxy owners never need to worry about whether they're getting the best possible experience from their phone," said Justin Denison, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Marketing at America.

In addition to download speeds, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have been recognised for their multiple high-performance features.

These include a dual-aperture camera, long-lasting battery, IP68 water and dust resistance, and most recently, double or even quadruple the storage in a new, high memory option.

"Whether users are sharing and sending summer photos from backyard barbecues, hanging out with friends on the beach, or loading up TV shows and movies for a long plane ride to visit family, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are the perfect phones for the summer," the company said.
