Samsung Galaxy S9 has a 5.8 inches screen with 550 ppi density and 83.6% screen-to-body ratio. Its ‘Always on’ display is a super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16 million colors, protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The phone is waterproof up to a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. It has a Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy S9 runs on Android 8.0 (Oreo) with a 4GB RAM and Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 processor. Different versions of the phone give you the choice between internal storages of 64/128/256GB. You can use a microSD card as well and expand it up to 400GB but it’ll take the space of second SIM slot.
The primary camera on Samsung Galaxy S9 is of 12 megapixels, while the secondary is of 8 megapixels. It has the ability to record videos with 2160p@60fps, 1080p@240fps, 720p@960fps. Dual Aperture supports F1.5 and F2.4 modes. A newly added feature is of animating yourself into emoji, similar to that of iPhone X. The AR emojis aren’t of the best quality and the face recognition in the screen lock is getting not so good response from people.
The sensors present in the phone are Iris scanner, fingerprint (rear-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, heart rate and SpO2. It is available in the colors: Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Titanium Gray & Lilac Purple. When you dive into the details, some problems come into focus that could break the experience. For example, the industry-first dual aperture lens that Samsung put in both Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus phones makes photos as bright as promised, but it also makes them blurry if there’s movement. And the 3D avatars and new face unlock tools meant to match similar features in the iPhone X ($1,188.00 at Amazon.com) are either half-baked or fundamentally flawed.

Samsung released a blog post sharing insight on how the phone maker was able to put 960fps Super Slo-mo into the Galaxy S9. Firstly, it can record 960 fps for 0.2 seconds. This is stretched out to playback over six seconds and is 32 times slower than normal video recording. Samsung also provides GIF, reverse, and swing options to share your creations. Samsung developed a three-layer image stack, which consists of the CMOS sensor, a faster readout circuit, and dedicated DRAM memory to process buttery smooth slow-motion.
The Ultimate goal is to develop a camera that always produces the best pictures for all users without tinkering with settings, allowing them to take photos and videos that satisfy their needs, – Junmo Kim, Samsung Mobile Communications Business Team member
