Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have more leaks. We have got less than two weeks before the pair its launch. If you are looking for significant upgrades from Samsung’s end this year, don’t. The Korean tech giant will improve last year’s S8 and S8+ which is fine. It is good to see Samsung take a break from eye-catching changes, and choose to focus on specific.
Poor Camera Sample Screenshot For Samsung Galaxy S9 Shows Improved Dynamic Range Over Predecessor; Provides Little Details For White Balance, Contrast
While the majority of flagship smartphones perform well in standard conditions, for long distance photography, they are physically limited. After all, manufacturers tend to be very picky with the components introduced in smartphones, due to the apparent constraints. That being said, we’ve got an exciting camera sample which allegedly belongs to the Samsung Galaxy S9 today.

The primary focus of this image is the dynamic range. You can see how well the purported Galaxy S9 camera samples captures details at a long distance. In comparison, the S8’s result looks to have HDR turned off. If you take a close look at the windows, you’ll see just how much the Galaxy S9 will improve things this year.
Of course, looking at the conditions in which these images were taken, it’s far-fetched to form any concrete conclusions based only on these results. Earlier leaks suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will feature a variable aperture, single lens rear camera setup. This will propel it far ahead of its predecessors. The smartphone is also rumored with f/1.5 aperture, allowing it to capture 50% more light than today’s flagships.
Now when you should expect improvements in Galaxy S9’s rear camera don’t expect a difference as stark as exhibited today. It is unlikely that settings for S8 and S9 are similar; Galaxy S8 has capabilities to perform better than shown today.
