Samsung's solution is its Dual Aperture 1 (F1.5 - F2.4), which automatically lets in more light when it's dark and less light when it's too bright.
Telstra Telstra has advised that they will indeed be offering the Galaxy S9 and S9+ on their network from 8am March 16 with pre-orders beginning tomorrow, the 27th February from 12:01am.
Samsung, though, touts the new super slow-mo mode as having value in the enterprise and it's easy to see how it could be applied to, for example, tracking the intricacies of manufacturing tasks.
How we communicate - and express ourselves - has changed, Samsung's Global Director of Marketing tells me.
"With the Galaxy S9 and S9+, we have reimagined the smartphone camera".
Telstra will have the 64GB version of both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ in Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple. The sensor, coupled with new camera features, should give owners new ways to take photos in various lighting conditions as well as record video in new and fun ways. Users can share their AR emojis across most third-party messaging platforms. Like the S8's, the fingerprint sensor is still on the back but to placate last year's moaners, it's been centered to a more sensible position below the camera instead of beside it - so no more accidental fingerprint smudges on your camera lens.
On the other hand, the larger Samsung S9+ sports a 6.2-inch QHD+ Curved Super AMOLED display. The displays on both the handsets have an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 has a stunning super AMOLED display and the bezels have gotten even thinner, making this one stunning smartphone.
If you're in the market for the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S9, the good news is that we've secured an absolutely sensational deal with Mobiles.co.uk on Samsung's finest smartphone to date. Just that much like the rest of the device, the aesthetics and design of the Galaxy S9 seem more tick than tock. The S9 is the first flagship phone from Samsung that features a mechanically adjustable aperture which can switch between f/1.5 for low light situations and f/2.4 for better lit environments.
Last but certainly not least - both the S9 and S9+ comes with AKG tuned stereo speakers that support Dolby Atmos sound. The phone then compares all exposures to create a single shot that includes all the detail you want, but with as little grain and noise as possible. Samsung introduced this change earlier this year with the launch of the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018).
When can I buy the Samsung Galaxy S9? Both the phones run on Exynos 9810 processor. It has Octa-core, 10 nm process processor and all of this powered by 3,000 mAh battery. With the S9, you would get 4GB of RAM and for the S9+, there's 6GB of RAM to go with the processor. The phones come packed with new-age tech features like AR Emojis; facial and iris recognition; and Samsung's voice assistant Bixby.
T-Mobile is doing its usual trade-in bill credit, offering up to $360 off the Galaxy S9 or S9+ with a qualifying trade-in.
Alternatively, EE is also stocking the Galaxy S9 - albeit at a higher price of £53 per month with an upfront cost of £150. Bixby will now use Artificial Intelligence to help you in real-time during foreign language translation.
By far the biggest improvement to the new flagships is the superior camera. However, the second sensor has a fixed aperture of f/2.4. This solves the problem numerous S8 and s8+ users had due to the position of fingerprint sensor placement.
