A week back, we told you that the upcoming flip phone from Samsung, the W2018, will feature the f/1.5 aperture. This means W2018 is going to be the phone with the largest aperture on a smartphone camera in the world. Today, we came to know that Samsung is going to showcase the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at the CES 2018 and the phones will come with slight design changes and some major specification upgrades.
Today, a new rumor has emerged that suggests Samsung Galaxy S9+ is going to feature a f/1.4 lens on the primary camera that means it is going to be the phone with the largest aperture on its camera. So far, we have seen LG V30 and the Huawei Mate 10 with the f/1.6 lenses on the rear. It might make sense since the S9+ is going to have dual rear cameras so there will be the primary camera with such a large aperture. There is no confirmation of this rumor by any trusted source, so it is better to consider it with a pinch of salt. But, as the cameras on smartphones are improving, it is possible that in few years, they might give a very tough competition to the DSLRs.
If Samsung adds a f/1.4 lens to the Galaxy S9+’s camera, the low-light performance of the camera is going to improve for sure. Let’s see what Samsung has planned to add in its next iteration of flagships. Stay Tuned.
