As happened between the S6 and S7, the Galaxy S9 used the same design lines as the S8, which improved the frames, which were further reduced so that almost the entire front was a screen for the first time in the family of cells. this phone.
The S9’s camera is 12 megapixels and has a variable aperture: you can switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 aperture. It allows you to change the light input, a key feature for beautiful low-light shots.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy S9 +’s cameras, which added a second 12-megapixel camera, can also record in super slow mode: a dynamic slow-motion video that captures 960 frames per second.
The Galaxy S9 has included face recognition as an unlock method.
