Dual aperture.


Take stunning pictures in bright or low light with Dual Aperture. Take photos without thinking twice—no matter the time of day. Dual Aperture adapts to bright light and super low light automatically, like the human eye. Flex your artistic side, adjusting the aperture to create your desired mood.

*Dual Aperture supports F1.5 and F2.4 modes. Installed on the rear camera (S9)/rear wide camera (S9+).

Super slo-mo.


Slow down time with Super Slow-mo. Make everyday moments epic with Galaxy S9 and S9+. 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.

*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.

AR emoji.


Forget words, express more with your own AR Emoji by simply taking a selfie of yourself . Your emoji can be transformed into multiple stickers and even brought to life with video to show a range of emotions, making it a new method of expression when you're chatting.

*Apps that do not support animated GIFs may still send AR Emoji stickers as a still image.

Infinity display.


See more with this beautiful edge-to-edge display that fits comfortably in your hand. It curves over the sides for almost borderless viewing.

*Infinity Display: a near bezel-less, full-frontal glass, edge-to-edge screen.

AKG speakers.


Hear the action with clarity thanks to the pure sound of stereo speakers tuned by AKG. The addition of Dolby Atmos delivers rich and vibrant sound, giving you a cinema-like audio experience. They offer pure sound that's 40% louder than the previous generation Galaxy phone.

Live translation.


Explore the world with your own handheld translator. The Galaxy S9's camera translates languages in real time, including Te Reo.

*Samsung Account log-in and data network (Wi-Fi or internet connection) required to fully operate Bixby features. Bixby Voice only recognizes select languages and accents/dialects. Data dependent, language translation based upon Google's translate offering and network provider accessibility and speed may vary.
