The Camera. Reimagined
The revolutionary camera that adapts like the human eye.
Capture stunning pictures in bright daylight and super low light.
Our category-defining Dual Aperture lens adapts like the human eye. It's able to automatically switch between various lighting conditions with ease—making your photos look great whether it's bright or dark, day or night.
*Dual Aperture supports F1.5 and F2.4 modes. Installed on the rear camera (Galaxy S9)/rear wide camera (Galaxy S9+).
F1.5 aperture mode
If it's dark, the lens opens to F1.5 mode to pull in light for a bright and clear photo.
F2.4 aperture mode
In the daylight, the lens shifts to F2.4 mode to help your picture come out sharp.
Low light photos
The camera that's brilliant in the dark.
The F1.5 aperture mode finds light even in the dark. So the low light camera delivers vibrant photos late into the night. Meaning your camera no longer has a curfew.
The camera that slows down time, making everyday moments epic.
*Super Slow-mo only supports HD resolution. Limited to 20 shots per video with approximately 0.2 seconds of recording and 6 seconds of playback for each shot.
Add music. Make GIFs. Get likes.
Super Slow-mo lets you see the things you could have missed in the blink of an eye. Set the video to music or turn it into a looping GIF, and share it with a tap. Then sit back and watch the reactions roll in.

The Galaxy S9 Plus brings a refined design, but it’s the ‘reimagined’ camera that makes this phone stand out, and worth the high price tag.
- Gorgeous design
- Brilliant, colorful display
- Feature-packed camera
- Excellent low-light photo quality
- Good sound from stereo speakers
- Battery life could be better
- Live Focus produces fuzzy photos
Ultimately, when you boil it all down, though it's still a pricey option, the new Samsung Galaxy S9+ is simply one of the best Android phones money can buy right now. It's arguably one of the best designed large format Android phones too, with gorgeous, sleek styling. And though battery life so far (we're still re-testing) hasn't dropped in quite where we expected, it's still pretty solid there too. The Galaxy S9+ is also currently the fastest Android handset on the market, with the best camera we've ever tested, as well as easily the best display of any smartphone we've seen to date. This new Galaxy S device also brings some innovative new features to the mix as well, like Super Slow-Mo, which is just plain fun. Regardless, that's a lot of "bests" Samsung has going on here and that, in our opinion adds up to an Editor's Choice device. Samsung nailed it with the new Samsung Galaxy S9+. Fantastic phone.

- Good camera in low light
- Fun Super Slow-Mo video
- Brighter display with even thinner bezels
- Swift performance
- Long battery life
- AR Emoji need work
- Intelligent Scan a step behind Face ID
- Bixby Vision AR features feel half-baked
