Samsung Galaxy S9+ Camera: Just How Good It Actually Is

Samsung Galaxy S9+ Camera: Just How Good It Actually Is

Samsung's latest offering is unveiled at Mobile World Congress. Samsung has finally fixed the positioning of the fingerprint scanner, which is now positioned directly below the camera module.

In Ireland, the phones will be on sale from 16 March with pre-orders open since 25 February.

Those that got to try out the new Samsung Galaxy S9 devices have been posting some of the images online. Let's compare them and understand what each brings to the table.

Note that Koh's response isn't a confirmation that Samsung will be changing the name of future phones, but it seems that the company is at the very least thinking about it.

Galaxy S9 has a 5.8-inch Quad HD + Curved Super AMOLED screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio. You can also grab the zoomed-in dandelion wallpaper (pictured up top), which Samsung has been using to promote the new phone.

Apart from the SoC, the phone brings with it 128GB of storage data and 6GB of RAM.

The S9 comes with 3,000mAh battery whereas the S9+ houses 3,500mAh battery. If you're using the camera in the day, the aperture automatically adjusts to its biggest opening, f/2.4. Screen margins are just a touch slimmer at the bottom and top of the phone, and the biggest adjustment is the physical opening and closing of the camera aperture. The S9 can flip between two apertures: opening up for 28 per cent more light in the dark and closing back up for bright shots. The S9+ has an additional telephoto lens, but the S9's single lens camera is not to be underestimated.

In front, the smartphone appears with an 8-megapixel auto-focus front camera for selfies and video calling.

Both the devices come with a number of key features.

AR Emoji was also a feature of Samsung's new camera, and it was the South Korean company's take on Apple's Animoji feature that was introduced on the iPhone X. These AR emojis can also be sent to other users during text conversations. The feature, however, will be available only to a select regions for now.

Oh and there's a headphone jack.

Nokia's also included its "Bothie camera" on the Sirocco.

Like the Galaxy S9, the wallpapers are minimalist, tasteful, and rather pretty. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, to recall, were launched in India at Rs 57,900 and Rs 64,900 respectively.

Of course, the final pricing of Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus in India could be higher. Thus, if you were looking for an upgrade in terms of the battery life from Galaxy S8 to Galaxy S9 then you would be a little disappointed.

Samsung has revealed official pricing for the S9 and S9+ and the bigger of these devices is anything but cheap. Case in point is the Galaxy S7 edge (review), which will now be seen as a more favourable purchase than before.
