Our friends from Samsung Chile took advantage of our stay in Barcelona to invite us to have the privilege of testing the newly released Galaxy S9 and play with it for an hour so we can test its functions, including its camera and its operating system in general.
In this way we could take some pictures with the equipment, also videos which we could record in 4K quality with up to 60fps and obviously we tested the super slow motion mode that reaches 960 frames per second in HD quality. The Galaxy S9 has a 12 megapixel camera which 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 its interface we will not find great differences with respect to what we saw today with the Galaxy S8 and Android Nougat. However, we have recorded part of its interface so you can get to know it, as well as we have recorded the camera application so you can meet the new AR Emojis.
Let's get started!
Then I will leave you with two videos that were recorded directly with the Galaxy S9 using super slow motion mode so you can see the result:
Super slow motion video 1
Super slow motion video 2
Now we will leave you with two videos that were recorded in Full HD quality at 30 frames per second and another in the highest quality that allows the Galaxy S9, that is in 4K quality at 60 frames per second.
Full HD 30fps video
4K 60fps video
For reasons we don't know, YouTube does not leave the video in 4K quality, just leave it in Full HD quality, so we have decided to upload the original file and make it available for download and try on your favorite player.
Here we leave you a couple of photographs that we could capture with the Galaxy S9 Unfortunately, the weather conditions at that time were not the best for taking photographs of evidence, but at least they will help you get an idea of the quality.
And in the following video you will be able to know the interface that will be offered by the operating system that in this case is Android 8.0 Oreo and some of the new features that it incorporates, such as the possibility of using the iris scanner and facial recognition as a new method of security. You'll also appreciate the camera interface and how the new AR Emojis work.
Here you have a couple of screenshots of its interface:
At the moment it is all we can offer you of the new Samsung Galaxy S9, but don't worry because we will soon have a review unit to bring you a complete analysis of the new flagship of Samsung's South Koreans.
