The first clip confirms previous rumors that the handsets will have a super-slow-motion feature. If you have the version with the Exynos 9810 chipset and not Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845, expect the Galaxy S9 and S9+ to deliver 1,000fps slow motion and 120fps at a 4K resolution.

The second video boasts that Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphones will be great for low-light photography. Word has it that they will have a variable aperture from f/2.4 to f/1.5 — the lowest ever in a phone. The lower the aperture value, the better.
