Dual Aperture

Samsung's Dual Aperture feature works like the human eye. In the dark, our pupil's open up to let more light in to help us see better and constrict when there's more light. The rear lens of one of the S9+'s 12MP cameras can automatically shift between an F2.4 and F1.5 aperture based on lighting conditions. In low-light, it shifts to F1.5 to let more light in to give you brighter and clearer nighttime photos, with no fine-tuning required. You can also take control of the situation by manually switching between the two apertures as you see fit.

Super Slow-mo at 960 FPS

The slower you go, the more epic those amazing, once-in-a-lifetime or hysterical moments can be in your video. Thanks to an enhanced speed sensor, the S9+ is capable of slowing it down by shooting an incredibly fast 960 frames per second in HD resolution. If you take an especially awesome Super Slow-mo shot, you can relive them on the S9+'s lock screen.

Helping you make sure you get that perfect Super Slow-mo shot in one take is Samsung's Motion Detection feature. When on, a yellow square appears on the screen during a video and Super Slow-mo is activated for the entire video once motion is detected inside the square. That level of control means less frustration and time wasted and more slow-mo videos to share online.

App Pair

In a plethora of cool features, this one is near the top for increasing your productivity. App Pair takes advantage of the S9+'s ability to do two things at once with split-screen and window-over-window capabilities. You can setup your own App Pairs, which tie two apps together and store the icon on your homescreen or in the Edge panel. Now, with the tap of a single icon, you can launch both apps at once and work on them in side-by-side.

Get Animated

Personalize your conversations with animated emojis based on how you look. With the S9+, you can take selfies of different expressions and convert them into an animated version of yourself or who you want to be. Change up the hair, glasses and clothes so they can share your personal style. You get 18 animated stickers of yourself automatically that show a wide range of emotion when chatting.

Superior Sound

We love to watch videos and listen to music with our phones and now with the S9+, you can enjoy louder and crisper audio thanks to built-in stereo speakers specifically tuned by AKG. It's pure sound that's 1.4x more powerful than previous Galaxy phones.

The S9+ takes mobile entertainment to new heights with the inclusion of Dolby Atmos technology, which gives you multi-dimensional sound that puts you in the center of a theater-like experience.

Intelligent Scan Security

Our phones capture our lives, so keeping them secure and locked is extremely important, which is why Samsung gives you six different methods to secure them. In addition to the standard PIN, Password and Pattern methods of locking your phone, the S9+ offers biometric methods that are tied to you and you alone. For example, a built-in fingerprint scanner on the backside of the phone is conveniently located below the camera and is flush with the phone's back, giving you a quick and unique method of unlocking your phone.

The S9+ gets more high-tech with facial recognition and iris scanning. It's designed to identify you in bright sunlight, low light and even if when you're wearing sunglasses.
