Samsung has dropped first official teasers for its latest flagship smartphones, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The two smartphones are scheduled to be unveiled at the company’s ‘Galaxy UNPACKED’ event on February 25 ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018.
Samsung has posted three videos on its Korean YouTube channel, giving a glimpse at the smartphone’s camera features. Camera would be the smartphone’s key feature as the Galaxy S9’s tagline is ‘The Camera. Reimagined’.
In the first video, a series of clips is shown in fast speeds such as an athlete sprinting and a cheetah running. The video ends with a slow motion clip indicating that the smartphone come with advanced slow-motion capabilities. The video is in line with previous rumours that Samsung’s Galaxy S9 will have a “super slo-mo” feature for videos, Sammobile reported.
This feature will have two modes with the first being the regular one which is simply tapping the capture button and recording from the point you want the slow motion video. The second mode would be more advanced as it would prepare the phone before recording the slow motion video.
Moving on to the second teaser, this one focuses on low-light photography. The video shows how the Galaxy S9’s low-light capture is really, really bright. This video also complements speculations of Samsung Galaxy S9’s camera having f/1.5 aperture.
The final video depicts a feature which may or may not amuse everyone awaiting the Galaxy S9 series. The video focuses on a guy’s face turning it into an animation at the end. This feature seems somewhat similar to Apple’s Animoji which is available on iPhone X.
Samsung’s flagship smartphones are tested performers and impress heavily in the camera department. The predecessor Galaxy S8 has 88 points, while Galaxy Note 8 scores 94 making it “the best smartphone for zoom”.
Based on recent rumors and leaks, Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor or the latest Exynos series. It could come with 4GB of RAM and 6GB of RAM as well. More expected features include an 18:9 display, and Android 8.0 Oreo.
