Samsung Unveils Galaxy S9 for Php45,990; Sports Dual Aperture Rear Camera with 960fps Slow-Mo Video

As expected, the Korean manufacturing giant has launched its flagship device for the first half of 2018 at MWC in Barcelona, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and its bigger brother, the S9+.

Let us introduce you first with the Samsung Galaxy S9, it has the same design principle as its predecessor, including the display size and the front and back Corning Gorilla protection. The Super AMOLED screen still measures 5.8 inches diagonally and still has the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio and WQHD+ resolution, but this time around it occupies more space, that is an 84.2% screen-to-body ratio as compared to the 83.6% of its older sibling.

Moreover, the placement of the fingerprint sensor is in a more natural position on its back, leaving a little to no stress at all with your finger when reaching it. Samsung also improves its face scanning feature, with both infrared and RGB sensors working at the same time, spoofing one's identity is much harder than before.

Camera wise, the 12MP dual pixel OIS main shooter employs a dual aperture technology for better light management, an f/1.5 to deal with low light situations, and an f/2.4 when it is too bright. If I am not mistaken, this is the first time a smartphone maker uses such technology. It also boasts 4K videos recording at 30fps, and an amazing slow motion 720p video at 960fps. Meanwhile, the front-facing snapper has similar, if not the same set-up with the last year offering, an 8MP f/1.7 sensor. Both the front and back cameras offer AR Emoji and Art Bokeh.
