Features of Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+
The highlight of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ is the dual aperture setup on the primary rear camera sensor, which has a capacity of shooting at f/2.4 when there is normal light but can switch to f/1.5 when there is low light. The company says that this helps Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to capture 28 per cent more light compared to the Galaxy S8.
It also comes with the super slow-mo camera that works similar to what we have seen on Sony’s recent flagships. Both Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are capable of recording 960 frames per second, which means 0.2 seconds of footage becomes of 6 seconds when you are playing it back.
