So after months of speculations, leaks and rumors the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are finally here There are lot of things that Samsung has improved over the S8 so without much further ado let's get right into the video
The Galaxy S9 features a single lens on the rear of the phone while the S9+ features 2 cameras and Samsung has packed in lots of improvements in its effort to 'reimagine' the phone camera There's a 12MP rear sensor with optical image stabilization, and a lot of the other features we've come to expect from high-end Samsung devices One of the biggest upgrades is new dual-aperture technology, with the camera automatically adjusting the aperture depending on the scene you're capturing, much like the human eye adapts to changing light The slow-mo features of the rear camera have also been improved so you can now take videos at 960 frames per second, which is four times slower than the Galaxy S8 This mode also uses something called automatic motion detect, which will automatically begin to record when the camera detects movement, so it should make it easier to only record the relevant moments in slow motion
The S9 features Intelligent scan unlocking system in which the face unlock and iris scanner biometrics now work at the same time to unlock the phone Samsung combining it with facial recognition technology means it'll hopefully be better at securing your phone, though I don't see it replacing fingerprint authentication just yet The new devices will feature stereo speakers, one at the bottom and the other one at the earpiece Samsung-owned AKG Acoustics has tuned the new speakers so that they're 40% louder than the single speaker on the S8 Plus And support for Dolby Atmos brings simulated 360-degree sound to the new smartphone
The best part? You won't accidentally mute all sound from the bottom-firing speaker when holding the phone in landscape mode In the US both new Galaxies run on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset, while the rest of the world has models powered by the mighty Exynos 9810 These are not only more powerful but 30% more efficient too Samsung says it believes people are communicating more with images than ever before, so it has made its own feature called AR emoji AR stands for augmented reality and this feature uses the front camera to take a selfie and make an emoji based on your looks
It uses facial recognition and can recognize over 18 different expressions It's a similar idea to the Animoji feature available on the iPhone X, but this allows you to make your own character and give it different hair colors, dress senses, 12 different clothing options and choose from 7 pairs of glasses Samsung is also bringing big improvements to its Bixby Vision project too When you're in the camera app you can tap the Bixby option to access a variety of different new features, including tracking the place you're in or pointing it at food, at which point it will try to work out what it is and even estimate the calories There's another feature called Live Translation that allows you to put the camera over a menu or text and auto-translate it
You'll need an internet connection and to wait a few moments for this to work, but it's an interesting addition that may come in useful when you're traveling Plus, Bixby Vision offers an enhanced beauty mode, so you can change the look of your selfies too Though Samsung didn't make a lot of changes to its formula for the S9, the ones it did make should be appreciated, and it will be a popular phone this year for sure Let me know your thoughts on the S9 in the comments below and I'll see you tomorrowPeace out!
