Samsung Galaxy S9+ Camera: Just How Good It Actually Is

  • Mobile World Congress 2018: Nokia, Samsung and Sony reveal new smartphones

The camera aperture of the Galaxy S9 can be changed from f/1.5 to f/2.4 The f/1.5 is helpful in low light shots to capture 28 percent more light. The two phones, which are the flagship Galaxy S phones, have divided the Samsung fans and smartphone enthusiasts.

AR Emoji uses a data-based machine learning algorithm, which analyses a 2D image of the user and maps out more than 100 facial features to create a 3D model that reflects and imitates expressions, like winks and nods, for true personalisation. However, once the specifications and features (or lack thereof) were revealed, many were disappointed to learn that the Galaxy S9 wouldn't be a significant departure from what we saw with the S8.

The camera can also shoot super slow-motion videos at 960 frames per second. Samsung gummed that up a bit over the last couple of years by requiring slightly different new models of Gear VR to fit its newer phones, most recently the Note 8 last year.

One of the main highlights of the Samsung Galaxy S9 duo this year is the improved camera technology.

- Both the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ come with Samsung's custom software built on top of Android Oreo and have features like face unlocking and animated emojis.

There's also a 3.5mm headphone jack along with the a USB-C port on the phone, unlike the Nokia 8, which only features a USB-C port for music and charging needs.


Samsung's answer is AR Emoji, and it advances the idea with a cartoon that looks kind of like you.

Nokia's also included its "Bothie camera" on the Sirocco.

While both the iPhone X and the Google PIxel 2 are premium phones with premium performance, it's a little unfair to compare them side-by-side with the Galaxy S9 - the first of a new generation of high-end smartphones with the specifications to boot. It is interesting to note that this will be the fastest that a Galaxy device has been introduced in the Indian market.

But the S9 doesn't tackle many of my bigger wishes for smartphones, such as new tech that can embed the fingerprint reader conveniently inside the front screen.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco, on the other hand, could come at a far affordable price than that of the Galaxy S9.

Here's everything you need to know about the Samsung S9 and S9+. However, the exact price is expected to be announced at the India launch event of the flagship phones.
