One of the most defining new features of the new Samsung Galaxy S9 is its camera. The Samsung S9 Camera has a variable aperture feature that is a first for smartphones. The camera is 12MP optically stabilized. The S9 Plus has the same camera next to a second telephoto lens to complete its dual setup.
This may be new camera tech on a smartphone, but how groundbreaking is it? Let’s take a look below and see if the new Samsung S9 camera has what it takes to be better than other smartphones, like the Pixel 2.

Most smartphone cameras have an aperture of around f/1.8 to f/2.0. The Google Pixel 2 is considered to have the best camera on a smartphone and it has an aperture of f/1.8. The Samsung S9’s variable aperture allows the smartphone’s camera to switch between f/1.5 to f/2.4.
The Samsung S9 Camera will take most pictures that are in good lighting in f/1.5 aperture mode. But if you are in a darker setting, then the camera will switch over to the f/2.4 aperture setting which will allow more light to enter the camera lens. In theory you will get superb pictures even in low light conditions.
