1. An even more infinite screen
We have already indicated that the Samsung Galaxy S9 has a 5.8-inch screen, a panel with dimensions identical to those of its predecessor. However, this device enjoys an even more infinite screen , which takes more advantage of the upper and lower margins. It goes from an 18: 9 format to an 18.5: 9 format
On the other hand, it is necessary to highlight the new menus for the panoramic mode. What will they be for? Well, to continue watching a movie while you reply to a message. The curved screen will come in handy to make the most of the Super AMOLED panel when viewing panoramic images .
2. Dual aperture camera with noise reduction technology
One of the most important novelties of this Samsung Galaxy S9 with respect to the Samsung Galaxy S8 is the dual opening system. The sensor is able to detect whether it is day . In this case, through an aperture of 2.4. When it is at night or in poorly lit scenes, use the aperture of 1.5. This has a direct impact on the quality of the catches. Photos promise to be 28% brighter than those captured with the Samsung Galaxy S8.
To all this, we must add the technology of multi-frame noise reduction. This is responsible for capturing up to 12 photos at a time to reduce photo noise by 30%.
3. Super slow motion
Another interesting novelty is the super slow motion system. For the occasion, DRAM memory has been added to the sensor to capture even more images per second. In total, you can get 960 frames per second with HD resolution . Includes a motion detector. Images can be transformed into GIF and sent directly to others. Or even set it as your wallpaper.
4. Customizable Samsung DeX
We already know the Samsung Dex system. But this time it arrives renewed on board the Samsung Galaxy S9. The device can function as a mouse and the system is fully customizable for businesses , disabling certain applications while using this technology.
5. AR Emoji system
And we end with another significant novelty of this Samsung Galaxy S9, which we see exclusively in this model. It is the AR Emoji system, capable of representing real emotions by detecting the user's face . How to get it? You have to take a photo with the camera and the system will detect 100 points on the user's face, transforming it into emoji.
The result can be shared through any messaging application, both as GIF and in image format. In total there are 18 expressions to create emojis with our face.
