The Samsung Galaxy S9 SM-G960F/DS Smartphone’s Dual Aperture feature is the hallmark of the S9, automatically switching based on lighting conditions. Built into the rear 12MP camera, Dual Aperture switches to f/2.4 mode in daylight to take sharp and beautiful images and in low-light situations it goes to f/1.5 mode to let more light in for brighter and clearer nighttime photos.
The S9’s 5.8″ Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display goes edge-to-edge and curves over both sides so you have minimal visual distractions. The stunning 2960 x 1440 resolution combines with an epic 18.5:9 aspect ratio to give your videos a truly cinematic quality.
Running the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, this phone is powered by a Octa-Core processor and 4GB of RAM. You can store your apps, AR emojis and Super Slow-mo clips on 256GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via an (optional) microSD card up to 400GB in size.
This phone is unlocked and compatible with GSM/4G LTE networks. Connect to the internet and other devices with built-in 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. The Galaxy S9 also supports NFC technology for making phone-to-phone data transfers, or mobile payments via Samsung Pay.
Samsung’s Dual Aperture feature works like the human eye. In the dark, our pupil’s open up to let more light in to help us see better and constrict when there’s more light. The rear lens of the S9’s rear 12MP camera can automatically shift between an f/2.4 and f/1.5 aperture based on lighting conditions. In low-light, it shifts to f/1.5 to let more light in to give you brighter and clearer nighttime photos, with no fine-tuning required. You can also take control of the situation by manually switching between the two apertures as you see fit.
Super Slow-mo at 960 FPS
The slower you go, the more epic those amazing, once-in-a-lifetime or hysterical moments can be in your video. Thanks to an enhanced speed sensor, the S9 is capable of slowing it down by shooting an incredibly fast 960 frames per second in HD resolution. If you take an especially awesome Super Slow-motion shot, you can relive them on the S9’s lock screen.
Helping you make sure you get that perfect Super Slow-mo shot in one take is Samsung’s Motion Detection feature. When on, a yellow square appears on the screen during a video and Super Slow-mo is activated for the entire video once motion is detected inside the square. That level of control means less frustration and time wasted and more slow-mo videos to share online.
In a plethora of cool features, this one is near the top for increasing your productivity. App Pair takes advantage of the S9’s ability to do two things at once with split-screen and window-over-window capabilities. You can setup your own App Pairs, which tie two apps together and store the icon on your homescreen or in the Edge panel. Now, with the tap of a single icon, you can launch both apps at once and work on them in side-by-side.
Personalize your conversations with animated emojis based on how you look. With the S9, you can take selfies of different expressions and convert them into an animated version of yourself or who you want to be. Change up the hair, glasses and clothes so they can share your personal style. You get 18 animated stickers of yourself automatically that show a wide range of emotion when chatting.
We love to watch videos and listen to music with our phones and now with the S9, you can enjoy louder and crisper audio thanks to built-in stereo speakers. It’s pure sound that’s 1.4x more powerful than previous Galaxy phones.
The S9 takes mobile entertainment to new heights with the inclusion of Dolby Atmos technology, which gives you multi-dimensional sound that puts you in the center of a theater-like experience
