Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus focus on the camera
Samsung has put great emphasis on new cameras.
Even the company’s director said that modern smartphones are not primarily phones but visual communication devices.
The Galaxy S9’s camera has 12 megapixels with f/1.5 and f/2.4. You can set it manually in Pro mode or choose the phone’s default settings depending on how bright the scene is.
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus two main camera of 12 megapixels, one of f/2.4 and the other is wide with f/1.5.
The camera on Samsung S9 Plus, in special, becomes almost similar to a professional one thanks to the double aperture that makes the photos very clear even in low-light conditions.
The camera can also shoot in super slow motion at 960 frames per second (maybe “too” super slow motion), and if you do not care about quality, it’s cool.
Maybe the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus focus on camera over other aspects but it’s still a must-have for every Samsung fan, and not only. The S9 costs $960 and the S9 Plus costs $1,100.
