[deleted post]Look, people don't like Sony and they say that they don't like Sony, also they say their real, reasons why, they deal with facts. You don't even justify things that you say, and are even personally insulting Samsung fans by calling them names. That's not mature or right thing to do. You have right to like whatever you like, but don't insult other people because they like something else.
looks like the Galaxy s8
nothing new here boys, except the fact they made a plus version and that the plus version is dual lense, just the way apple does it.
S8 User, 12 Jan 2018S9+ having dual camera, overall camera improvements, stereo speakers... so yeah. I think that ... moreYou can't put make up on a pig...thats the same as praising the S9 mate. Its a fail, they just copy everything other companies do and call it 'innovation'
LIRKER, 13 Jan 2018Yes, and this one will be have more than 1000fps so it'll beat Sony's Motion EyeÂ™ camera. Not... more960fps on Sony is a choice of Sony.
Because they did not know back then how phone would react , you know the heat, battery drain...
When sensor was presented at the press in SF, it was stated that imx400 can do 1000fps@1080p, also 60@4K.
Sammy had to built it in a different way to avoit patent issues, this way is less efficient than Sony's.
Imx400 has 1GB ram inside, a sensor would need about 5 to reach 1s recorded.
Ume, 12 Jan 2018Super slow mo??? Is that mean like sony xperia xzs?Yes, and this one will be have more than 1000fps so it'll beat Sony's Motion EyeÂ™ camera. Not antagonizing, but good step from Samsung.
Electrash , 12 Jan 2018They didnt discontinued Knox. They discontinued my Knox app in favor for secure folder. It's s... moreSamsung has officially discontinued the service in December 2017, so there is no way they will use it for 2018 device. I know because I have received e-mail from Samsung saying I should download all the data before march otherwise it will be deleted.
I wish they'd have 128gb as base model for flagship phones. I also wish Samsung would bring back the IR blaster and they would somehow get the battery to provide at least 24 hrs of SOT with max screen brightness.
Skipping the S9. Will see what the Note 9 has to offer.
What's even the point of a variable aperture on a phone? The 35 mm equivalent of f/1.5 on their phones is already a narrow f/10, when would you need to drop down to f/15?
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2018Not calling any names here but its sad when they charge 1000 dollars and it does not even come... moreI agree bundled earphones are crappy good thing samsung might include akg like LG V series have b&o and I heard huawei also have great earphones and I never tried htc bundled ones and more makers should put high quality earphones and fast charger but we all now its because of profit
Mobilemaster, 12 Jan 2018Hm. Not seems to be a big update from the S8. I believe this should use that 24 MP camera sens... moreDifferent fingerprint scanner position, stereo speakers - those are minor improvements.
Better camera, better chipset - those are already better improvements.
Biggest improvement will be S9+ with dual camera and 6GB of RAM.
And I have no clue what Samsung has in store for Note9...
S9+ having dual camera, overall camera improvements, stereo speakers... so yeah. I think that S9 will be worth to upgrade from S8. I mean, I will still keep using my S8, just many people will make this upgrade. The S8 was by itself extraordinary phone, and still is. Just S9 manages to be even better. The S8 has some flaws, even tho they are small and hard to find - but S9 corrects them all. Samsung really does listen to it's fans.
I forgot to mention that apart from data write speeds and sensor processing speeds, focusing speed is very important for good HDR. I am guessing that this Super Speed Dual pixel would help in faster HDR processing.
[deleted post]Why is your reaction this dramatic? Sorry but I don't understand it. It's just a piece of hardware. Nobody is forcing you, or anyone else to buy.
The sheer amount of vitriolic that Apple famboys spew on the world is amazing.
I am guessing that the
'Super Speed Dual Pixel' meanseven faster focus than the super fast dual pixel on the S8 and Note 8.
Also, while 'Super Slow-mo' could include 1080p video @ 1000 fps, it would also include Full Res (12MP), at 60p or over (upto 120p) Also, to sustain 1000fps for speeds longer than tiny fractions of seconds would also require suffient amounts of on-chip RAM (DRAM). i am guessing that it would help have higher photos in HDR processing, apart from video quality. Also, this may have good HDR 4k video processing too.
I personally doubt the S9 may have 10-bit video, due to the slow processing of the Snapdragon 845, and thus maintaining equal performance on both variants (Exynos and Snapdragon).
I wish Samsung release a non-US Exynos version that does 4k 10-bit video at high bit rates (with Log). They could charge a premium for it.
[deleted post]Try to be reasonable, OK? I know you dislike Samsung, but insulting people won't get you anywhere.
It's just a phone...
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2018Rectangle design? Never. Sammy loves their ugly curves You sir, just won the prize for the least intelligent remark of the day. Let me guess, you're one of the three people owning a Sony? :)
Now if only someone could test the camera on W2018. The S9 is going to have the same camera, so such a test would help a lot of people decide whether to buy a Note 8 or wait for S9.
