Our friends from Samsung Chile took advantage of our stay in Barcelona to invite us to have the privilege of trying the newly launched Galaxy S9 and play with it for an hour so we can test its functions, including the camera and the operating system in general.
In this way, we can take some photos with equipment, also videos that we can record in 4K quality at 60 fps and, obviously, we are testing super slow motion modes that reach 960 frames per second in HD quality. The Galaxy S9 has a 12 megapixel camera that has an aperture that varies between f / 1.5 and f / 2.4.
From the factory it comes with Android 8.0 Oreo and in the interface we will not find a big difference with respect to what we see today with Galaxy Nougat S8 and Android. However, we have recorded a part of the interface so you can find out, and we have recorded a camera application so you can get to know the new Emoji AR.
Let us begin!
Then I leave you with two videos recorded directly with Galaxy S9 uses super slow motion mode so you can see the results:

4K video at 60 fps
For reasons we don't know, YouTube Do not leave the 4K video, just leave it in Full HD quality, so we have decided to upload the original file and make it available to download and test your favorite player.
Here are some pictures we can take with Galaxy S9 Unfortunately, the weather conditions at that time were not the best to take photographic evidence, but at least they will help you get a picture of their quality.
And in the following video you will know the interface offered by the operating system that in this case is Android 8.0 Oreo and some new features that it incorporates, such as the possibility of using an iris scanner and facial recognition as a new security method. You'll also appreciate the camera's interface and the way Emoji AR works.

Right now, that's all we can offer you from the new Samsung Galaxy S9, but don't worry because we will soon have a review unit to give you a complete analysis of Samsung's new South Korean ship.
