Indian e-commerce giant Flipkart has launched a dedicated teaser page for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. The teaser page which was made live earlier today suggests that Flipkart could be carrying the next Samsung flagships exclusively in India on the online retail channel.

Flipkart’s teaser page focuses on the Galaxy S9’s camera, with the tagline “The Camera. Reimagined.”. Samsung has also posted teasers hinting that the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will come with several features like slow-motion videos, variable aperture, a Face ID equivalent, 3D emojis and more.

In addition to new software features, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will also reportedly come with dual camera setup, which will be a first for a Galaxy S series flagship.
