With its Super Slow-mo video, best-in-class low light camera and AR Emoji for a more personalised way to express yourself, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are the smartphone reimagined.
The Super Slow-mo feature makes everyday moments epic. Video is captured at a rate of 960 frames per second and can be started manually or through the automatic Motion Detection – an intelligent feature that detects movement in the frame and automatically begins to record (all users have to do is set up the shot). After capturing the Super Slow-mo video, users can select background music from 35 options or add a tune from their favorite playlist. GIF files can also be easily created, edited and shared!
Good lighting is the secret to any great photo. But often photos are taken in less-than-ideal lighting conditions and most smartphone cameras have a fixed aperture that can’t adjust to low or bright lighting environments, resulting in grainy or washed-out pictures. Similar to the way the iris of a human eye expands and contracts, Samsung’s Dual Aperture (F1.5 / F2.4) automatically lets in more light when it’s dark and less light when it’s too bright, taking photos that are crisp and clear.
New to Samsung, the AR Emoji feature uses a data-based machine learning algorithm, which analyses a 2D image of the user and maps out more than 100 facial features to create a 3D model that reflects and imitates expressions, like winks and nods, for true personalisation. AR Emoji shares your real-life emotions, not only in video but also with a range of stickers, and uses a standard AGIF file format, so users can share their emojis across most third-party messaging platforms – best of all, it’s a lot of fun!
Add in a refined edge-to-edge Super AMOLED Infinity Display; powerful stereo speakers tuned by AKG; immersive audio with Dolby Atmos®; Bixby – Samsung’s intelligence platform; IP68 water and dust resistance and wireless charging; Knox 3.1 – Samsung’s latest defence-grade security platform; plus an expandable memory of up to 400GB, and you can understand why the S9/S9+ is a smartphone re-imagined.
