The company promises to bring to its users, new and exciting features, especially with their camera.

The 8MP front camera is similar in both the Galaxy S9 and S9+. However, the former comes with a single 12 MP (dual pixel) rear camera; while the S9+ houses a dual rear camera (12MP + 12MP) setup. Notably, the main cameras are powered by the Super-Slow-Motion video feature at 960 fps.
