Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ went official few days back, just in time for the Mobile World Congress 2018. The Galaxy S9+ is the top model among the duo, packing a dual camera design, and indeed the camera configuration is shown to be top notch. We don’t have to wait for too long for the camera samples as well as the videos shot by the Galaxy S9+ as those are already out, albeit official ones.
Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Camera Upgrades
Samsung has been putting all of their focus on the camera, and the upgrades they’ve presented are proof of that. The Galaxy S9 is using Samsung’s new variable aperture technology that will allow the camera to intelligently switch between an aperture better for day time shots, f/2.4, and an aperture better for low light and night time shots, f/1.5. Doing so also helps reduce noise in low light pictures which is currently a problem with many smartphone cameras. The Galaxy S9’s bigger brother, the Galaxy S9+, has the same variable aperture camera but also adds a 12MP zoom lens. The second lens can be used for Samsung’s live focus mode which is just normal portrait mode that allows you to adjust the background blur after you take the picture.
Check out how the camera sensors of the device performed on these picture and video samples below and be the judge.
