"While the Galaxy S9 display might at first appear to be very similar to the Galaxy S8, there are many major display performance improvements".

Samsung has finally unveiled the newest addition to its highly acclaimed flagship smartphone line in the new generation Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.


"The Samsung Galaxy S9+ comes with a camera that hasn't got any obvious weaknesses and performs very well across all photo and video test categories", DxOMark notes. Depending on the situation, the cameras can detect the level of light in your surroundings and will thus adjust its aperture (either at f/1.5 or f/2.4) to better illuminate pictures.

The Samsung Galaxy S9's camera, dubbed as the "Super Speed Dual Pixel" camera is a huge upgrade to Samsung's current Dual Pixel camera that was featured in previous iterations of the flagship phones. DxOMark is a great indicator of what to expect from a mobile camera, but real-life testing is what really determines who has the best mobile camera. There is one aspects where the Galaxy S9+'s camera lacks; texture.


Both the S9's cameras are 12 megapixels, although the main camera has a 1/2.55-inch sensor with its variable aperture lens whereas the secondary camera has a 1/3.6-inch sensor. So at MWC 2018, we learned more about the Samsung Galaxy S9 launching later this month. With a photo sub-score of 104 and video sub-score of 91, the Galaxy S9+ scored five points more than last year's Galaxy Note 8, which was rated at 94. This suggests the handset will be launched with the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out of the box, likely featuring the latest version of the Samsung Experience UI for the mid-range Galaxy smartphones.
