The latest smartphone from the Korean Giant is not really innovative at the first look. Indeed, the shape of the Galaxy S9 is almost the same as it’s predecessor and the improvements are located inside the device.


A whole new camera

“The revolutionary camera adapts like the human eye”. This is what Samsung says on its website. The new camera included in the Galaxy S9 would be able to adapt various lighting conditions like the human eye. A feature that allows users of the phone to take pictures in low light like daylight. The F1.5 aperture mode opens the lens to pull in light, then you can end up with a brighter and clearer picture. However, with the 2.4 aperture mode, you can shoot extremely sharp pictures.

A new feature: The next level slow motion: The “Super Slow-mo”. This slow motion can shoot up to 960 frames per second thanks to the enhanced speed sensor. The Super Slow-Mo is also capable of detecting the right moment with Motion Detection, you end up with the perfect Slow Mo at the first try. This sensor allows you to catch the perfect moment in a video and exploit it. With Instant Edit, social media lovers will enjoy to play with the Slow Mo Editor and share it with their friends after.

With all those new features, the new Galaxy S9 doesn’t have anything to envy it’s competitor: The iPhone X.
