The Samsung Galaxy S8 was the terminal of the S range that added a revolutionary design change in the catalog of the Korean firm. This design remains implicit in the Samsung Galaxy S9 , because its real improvements are in the hardware and, above all, in its camera.
And is that the Samsung Galaxy S9 camera It has different novelties, as it happens with the double camera of 12 MP sensors, OIS and 2X optical zoom that we find in the Samsung Galaxy S9 + and that has earned him to become the mobile with the best camera of 2018, for the moment.
The YouTube channel of JerryRigEverything , the same one that tends to subject the smartphones that pass through your hand to all kinds of tortures (yes, there are also resistance test of samsung Galaxy S9 ), just upload a video where the top of the manufacturer is dismantled to discover closely the performance of Samsung Galaxy S9 camera and its variable opening system.
Dual Aperture, up close
We already had a look at the Samsung Galaxy S9 camera this weekend when the guys from iFixit accessed the “guts” of the terminal. Now, through the video that appears on these lines, we can see closely how the system of variable opening of the sensor embedded in the top of the range of the brand behaves, and that we could already see in the MWC of Barcelona.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 camera It has a small diaphragm that opens and closes to switch between an opening f / 1.5 and f / 2.4. The smaller number indicates that a greater amount of light will pass to the sensor, while the larger number indicates a smaller step. This works the same as in professional reflex cameras (which have more steps), only adapted to the manual mode of Samsung’s flagship camera for 2018.
In the clip we can see how the Samsung Galaxy S9 camera It has a small button that automates the process so that, when we click on the screen, the lens opening varies depending on the requested order. During the disassembly of the mobile we see how its operation can be “forced” mechanically.
East variable opening system It is also present in the Samsung Galaxy S9 + camera, and allows to obtain better images in unfavorable light conditions. You have all the information about it in our Samsung smartphone analysis .
