Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S9 and HMD Global’s slew of Nokia phones dominated the consumer segment of announcements at the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona. Samsung’s new flagship phone, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will go on sale on March 16 and come with the promise of an improved camera. The two phones will also compete against arch rival Apple’s iPhone X and Apple iPhone 8 series.

Samsung has introduced a new dual aperture technology on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ cameras where the aperture is automatically adjusted for light conditions. In low-conditions, the lower aperture will allow for more light to ensure the camera sensor, thus improving picture quality. Samsung is promising that the Galaxy S9’s camera is capable of capturing good quality pictures even in extreme-low light conditions, which still remains a challenge for most smartphones. The company has also introduced a new AR Emoji feature on the new flagship phones, which is similar to Apple’s iPhone X, to let users create 3D style avataar of themselves.
