Samsung smartphones are known for having superior camera technology and the Galaxy S9 and S9+ hold true to that. The devices were first announced at Samsung Unpacked during Mobile World Congress and enhanced camera functions dominated the list of new features. Galaxy S9 and S9+ use state-of-the-art technology to deliver high-quality images and here are the features that make it possible:

Low Light Camera

Light – or the lack there of – can single handedly ruin a photo and often times photos are taken in less than ideal lighting situations. Because most smartphone cameras have fixed aperture and a single light source, we end up posting grainy or washed out photos. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ promise to change that with Samsung’s Dual Aperture functionality, which automatically lets in more light when it’s dark and less light when it’s too bright; a feature that will banish over and under exposed photos in favor of getting the shot right every time.

Super Slow-mo

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ can dramatize memories captured using slow motion video that captures 960 frames per second. The camera also has automatic Motion Detection, which detects movement in the frame and automatically starts recording. After capturing videos in slow motion, you can select background music from 35 presets, add music from your playlists or create, edit and share GIFs.

AR Emoji

See yourself in a whole new way with augmented reality. Unlike Apple’s Animoji, Samsung lets you create an emoji that looks, sounds and acts like you. AR Emoji uses a data-based machine learning algorithm, which analyzes a 2D image of you and maps out more than 100 facial features to create a 3D model that reflects and imitates expressions, like winks and nods, for true personalization. The graphic is a true reflection of you without horns, whiskers or an uncontrollable tongue. AR Emoji conveys real-life emotions in video as well as a range of stickers and uses a standard AGIF file format which allows you to share your custom emojis across most third-party messaging platforms.
