Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ with dual aperture camera launched

Samsung has just unveiled two new flagship devices Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at Mobile World Congress 2018 which succeeds the popular Galaxy S8 devices. IN terms of design, both Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ looks almost same as the Galaxy S8 devices, though there are some major variations.

Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ boast of a new variable aperture camera on the smartphone with a f/1.5 aperture for night shots under low lighting and f/2.4 aperture for normal shots in the daytime with good lighting. Galaxy S9 features a 12-MP main rear camera while the Galaxy S9+ features a dual camera module with another secondary 12MP Telephoto lens for live focus with bokeh effect having blur background. Another new feature comes in the form of 960fps Super Slow-mo video option that we have seen earlier in Sony flagship devices.

Other features include the new AR Emoji which lets you create Emoji based on your real pictures similar to Apple iPhone emoji feature.

Samsung has heard the feedback on the placement of fingerprint sensor with Galaxy S8 and now the fingerprint sensor is placed below the rear camera module making it more accessible with your index finger.
