Samsung is also offering one-time screen replacement as well as Rs 9000 cashback when the customers pay using Paytm Mall or ICICI Bank credit cards. Alongside the new Galaxy S9+ variant, the company also announced a new unified mobile to TV convergence solution as an app named ‘SmartThings’.
As per the company, the new Galaxy S9+ variant is the first on the smartphone to feature a satin gloss finish. Customers looking to buy this variant online will also have the option to pre-book the device starting June 15, 2018 on Samsung Shop and Flipkart.
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.
The new Sunrise Gold color creates a feeling of both vibrancy and calm. This sophisticated finish was developed to appeal to all users by bringing a stylistic touch of high fashion and urban interior design to a user’s mobile device.
Commenting on the launch, Aditya Babbar, General Manager, Samsung India, said:
Our consumers are looking to express their style and personality through technology and colour plays a big part in that personalization. The Sunrise Gold edition of Galaxy S9+ extends the colour offerings of Galaxy S9+ with vibrant styles that embrace a modern and classic feel. In our endeavour to bring meaningful innovation for our consumers as part of our Make for India initiative, we are also delighted to introduce a one of its kind unified convergence solution between mobiles and television.
