The Samsung Galaxy S9 camera quality of both cameras will be a step up from the Galaxy S8 and a world of difference from the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S6, but what can we actually expect in terms of raw performance? Will it compare to a DSLR?
Smartphone cameras are becoming exceptionally good and the Galaxy S9 is set to be even better. Unfortunately, it won’t be able to outperform a traditional camera, simply because the lens on the S9 is going to be far smaller. However, the Galaxy S9 camera quality will still be exceptional, especially in well-lit scenarios.
If you know what you’re doing when it comes to white balance, ISO and shutter speed, you’ll also be able to create photos that could impress any photographer. The Galaxy S9 will be able to record 4K footage, most likely up to 60 frames per second, and it will also be able to take high quality 4K images.
If the Galaxy S9 has a dual-camera setup on the back it could also mean that the Galaxy S9 could be used to take wide angle images. Alternatively, the Galaxy S9 may be equipped with a single, higher megapixel camera with a larger aperture lens. In this case, the Galaxy S9 camera will be able to take high quality night time pictures with thanks to the shutter speed function.
As for the actual Galaxy S9 camera specs – we can’t be certain, but it would not come as a surprise to us if the Galaxy S9 was equipped with a single 21-megapixel camera or two 16 megapixel cameras. The front facing camera will most likely have a 12-megapixel sensor. Whilst the primary camera will have flash, the front facing camera will not. Instead, the display will light up in low light areas to create enough light for the front facing camera to take clear images.
