A few hours ago, Samsung officially announced its new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus phones and now we’ll take a closer look at the camera for the new phones.
The camera is one of the main factors to consider before buying any new smartphone, and in the past we have seen a rapid and clear development in the smart phone cameras, starting with the wide aperture and the end with dual cameras.
On the new Samsung phones we see a big change in the rear camera, the Galaxy S9 Plus comes with a dual camera. The first with a variable lens aperture (from F / 1.5 to F / 2.4) and 26mm, 12 megapixels and 1.4μm pixels in addition to Dual Pixel for fast automatic focus.
The other camera also comes with 12 megapixels and 1μm (due to the small size of the sensor) and a 52mm focal distance to shoot with a 2x optical zoom. You’ll be able to shoot 4K video and 60 frames per second instead of just 30 frames! Now you can shoot Slow-Mo videos at 960 frames per second and 720p.
The front camera of both phones will come with 8 megapixels and a F / 1.7 lens for better performance in low-light.
