Dual Aperture

Stunning shots whatever the lighting

Take photos without thinking twice—no matter the time of day. Dual Aperture adapts to bright light and super low light automatically, just like the human eye. Explore your artistic side, adjusting the aperture to create any mood.

HDR for low light

Capture colour even in the dark

Take sharp, colourful photos on a camera that's not afraid of the dark. Not only does it help preserve details in daylight and backlit photos, the Galaxy Note9's HDR capabilities keep details clear and colours vivid at night, without washing out light sources.

Dual lens camera

Two lenses, infinite possibilities

Elevate your photography with Galaxy Note9's dual 12MP camera with 2x optical zoom. The telephoto lens and wide-angle lens work together to shoot the whole scene even when you're zoomed in, or create unique portraits with Live focus. With dual Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), photos will come out sharp, even if the camera's a little shaky.

Live focus for low light

Portraits that shine all night

Create dazzling portraits even in the dark, with Live focus on the Galaxy Note 9's rear camera. It puts the spotlight on your friends and family by blurring out the background. The camera detects low light and takes multiple shots, blending them together for pin-sharp photos. Then you can transform the background lights into shapes and expressions to match your style.
