Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy S9 earlier today, and it’s a pretty impressive offering no doubt. While, of course, not much has changed since the S8, we’re getting a refined phone here, and it brings quite a few new features along with it.

The best gifts for Android users

There are several notable additions to the Galaxy S9, one of which is the refined design. This includes new color variants, a relocated fingerprint sensor, as well as the new camera layout as well.

The S9 also packs upgraded cameras as well. The standard S9 packs a single camera with its larger brother offering dual-cameras. In either case, though, the primary shooter offers a “dual-aperture” tech which can adjust the camera between an f/1.5 aperture and f/2.5. That’s ideal for low-light or broad daylight shooting, as you can adjust it to best suit the scenario.

As far as software goes, Samsung has also slightly revamped Bixby, added a new “AR Emoji” feature, and introduced a super slow-mo recording mode.

Samsung details all of those features, and more, in a set of hands-on videos which you can check out below. If you want to learn more about the Galaxy S9, check out our full coverage.
