Scene Optimizer

With the real-time intelligence feature, the Galaxy Note9 camera automatically recognizes 20 different types of scenes by analysing the object (e.g. flower, sunset, food) 


This means that you don't need to worry about manually editing the colour saturation, white balance and brightness of your image.


You can access these modes by launching the Camera app > select Camera settings on the 'AUTO' mode > Turn on Scene Optimiser


3 of the 20 modes include: 


  • Flower: Makes the image appear more vivid by adjusting the colour, contrast and brightness
  • Sunset: Optimizes the image by reducing the brightness and adjusting the 'red colour' intensity 
  • Food: Increases the saturation level to emphasize the vividness
Flaw Detection (Eye blink, Motion blur, Lens smudge, Back light)

The Galaxy Note9 can detect four common flaws:


  • Closed eyes
  • Smudges on the Camera lens
  • Blurring
  • Excessive backlight

If any of the above flaws are detected, a pop up notification advising the flaw (e.g.someone may have blinked) will appear.


Additionally, if you take a photo and miss the right moment, you’ll get an alert so you can reshoot the image. 



Please Note: The flaw is detected within 3 metres 

Peformance in Low-light conditions

Using the Live Focus feature on the rear camera, you can take high quality photos even in the dark. This feature  lets you put the spotlight on your friends and family by blurring out the background.

The Galaxy Note9's camera detects low light and captures multiple shots, blending them together for pin-sharp photos. Then, you can transform the background lights into artistic shapes and expressions.

Enhanced AR Emoji

Additionally,  super-slow motion recording may start automatically:


  • If the device shakes 
  • If a another object is moving near the subject in the motion detection area
  • When recording under flickering light, such as a fluorescent light
  • When recording in dark areas where noise occurs

Discontinuation of Sports Mode

The Galaxy Note9 does not support Sports mode anymore. Instead, users can take clearer photos of fast-moving subjects, such as a person running or a pet in motion,  via the  AUTO camera mode.


Alternately in Pro mode, you can adjust the Shutter Speed to take pictures similar to Sports mode.
