The Galaxy S9 and S9+ cameras have a “Super Speed Dual Pixel” sensor with dedicated processing power and memory to take high-quality pictures. Samsung’s “Dual Aperture” (F1.5 / F2.4) — the world’s first such feature in any smartphone — automatically lets in more light when it’s dark and less light when it’s too bright, taking photos that are crisp and clear.
The “Super Slow-mo” video captures 960 frames per second. The “Slow-mo” videos can also be turned into GIFs. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ also offer automatic “Motion Detection”, a feature that detects movement in the frame and automatically begins to record — all users have to do is set up the shot. The devices now support expandable memory of up to 400GB with a Micro-SD Card.
